My Life’s Dichotomies

I am…

a big sister and a little sister,…though at this age, it doesn’t matter so much anymore.

a daughter and a mother

an aunt and a niece

a student and a teacher

a rule follower and an undisciplined individual

a person of strength and a person of weakness

a deep friend and an acquaintance

one who enjoys the ocean and the mountains

a reader and a writer

and the list goes on.

But, most of all, I am a child of the Most High God.

There is no dichotomy there.  I may have many different roles to play out in life on this earth.  I may have many different interests and things that yearn for my attention.

But the place where I am at my most complete, the place where I find the most fulfillment and enjoyment, and the place where I am whole is in the center of my Father’s will.  When I am focused, purposeful, and deliberate concerning my relationship with God there is no dichotomy.  I am who He created me to be.  I will do what He created me to do.  I am His child and will purpose to live my life for His glory.

“Father God, Thank-You for seeing all aspects of me as complete.  May my life be lived in such a way as to bring glory and honor to Your name every day of the life You have given me.  Be the Lord of this day as I walk in You.”
