It is interesting to me to see how people “label” us in life. We get labeled by our jobs, the people we work with, mistakes we have made, victories we have achieved, the setting for which we meet people, etc. The funniest thing is, usually none of those things are the real YOU, or the real me for that matter. Those labels are not who we are.

Beyond that thought, how do You see You? Do you see yourself for how God created you? Do you see what he sees, or are you caught up in how you THINK people see you?

We have to strive to find that true identity for which we have been created. That person behind our masks that have the heart of God and are what HE says, wants, and created. If we could define ourselves by that yardstick, it would remove a lot of the disfunction of our lives.
