Help me to Be...

Dear Lord God, please help me to stop asking who I am supposed to be, who others want me to be, who it is good to be, and help me to just...Be.

There are so many things that I want to be!  But more and more, I am realizing that I cannot become anything until I become okay with who I am now.  Maybe not okay as in, this is who I want to be forever, but okay as in, this is a great place to begin.  Every day is a new beginning.  God, please help me stop trying to be what I think others want me to be.  I want to fear no one's rejection but Yours...and I know that You will never reject a heart that sincerely seeks after You.

I do not fear or reject the weaknesses of others, I do not turn away from the pain of others...I want to stop fearing that others will fear and reject my weakness, turn from my pain.  They may, but that is not for me to fear.  I know for a fact that when we freely enter into the pain of others with love and compassion, we come away richer for it.  But ultimately, if the God of the Universe does not reject me in my weakness, fear and pain, then what is there to fear?

Just for today, dear Lord, help me to be.

Hi Kelly,

Just remember that all the approval we need is only God's approval, men's approval does not carry weight.

When God approves, things fall right in to place. Just heard this song recently that lifted my soul.

Hope this helps

Thank you, Sue. This is a truth that I find myself having to claim over and over again. I look forward to the day when it is so much a part of who I am that it is just a natural part of my thinking.
