Who Am I?

Who Am I

We all wrestle with this question. And usually not just once in our lifetime but many times. It is difficult to stay true to yourself with so many external variables. This is God’s freedom for us. This freedom is difficult many times, but what a wonderful thing! The freedom of choice. However, you are probably like me. I sometimes want God to give me the pattern for the tapestry I am making. He is so clever! He says here are your parameters—now use your beautiful gifts to create the majesty! And so the questions begin. And the questioning is good. The more questions you ask, the more reveals you discover. And of course these reveals lead to more questions. All of this—weaving the tapestry of your life. So don’t be afraid. Ask yourself, “Who Am I?”, and then weave to find out!

Who Am I?

 Are you your mother’s child?

Or do you sometimes feel you would not be.

Do you have your father’s ways?

Or have you watched so much you have adopted your father?

We have to ask this question to become who we need to be.


It cannot really be who am I?

It is really who I am becoming.

I cannot become by myself.

It takes mother, father, family, friends, and the Holy Spirit to become.

I cannot fear, but I must use faith for the future to become.


God laid the frame and has given me the choice to weave the tapestry.

What will the tapestry look like?

Will the tapestry be worn in spots?

Will it have bright colors?

Will its design intersect the cloths of others?


Who am I?

I am who I am.

I am all of these.

I am all of these and more.

The thread of the Creator.
