_ 021214 Spiritual Idenity


Good day to ya everyone. Oh give thanks unto the Lord for He is good yes He is good and He is worthy of all our praise. As I sat down to write this thought came into my mind; do you know who you are? I took this to mean as a child of God but the Holy Spirit did what it always does, it changed the direction my thoughts were going. I was reminded of a situation in which I did an exercise with a group of friends and asked each person; what do people think of when your name is mentioned. Do they know the real you? It caused some deep spiritual thought. My hope is that this message will make you do some looking inside yourself for the real answers.


Today’s Prayer

    Dear Heavenly Father, everyone has the same number of hours in a day. How we use them will determine the person we become.  Whether or not we take time to read Your Word and to listen to the leading of the Holy Spirit is a choice that we make daily. Help us to see that only by choosing Your way can we be transformed into the likeness of Jesus.  Oh Father, we want to choose life, and live it on Your terms. In Jesus’ holy name we pray. Amen.

Let’s eat.


Do You Know Who You Are?


“Continue your love to those who know you, your righteousness to the upright in heart” (Psalm 36:10).


    Someone once said, “Success is when those who know you the best are those who love you the most.”

Years ago a man named Jahari developed a self-assessment tool that helps us understand how we relate to others. The Jahari Window helps us realize where we are in our ability to know who we are and for others to know who we are. Real transparency in communication takes place when those we associate with know who we are after we discover who we really are. See if you can identify what category you might fall among these four:

Transparent Life: The transparent life is the life we should desire. I know who I am and others know me. There is nothing hidden. I have come to know who I am as an individual and basically people get what they see in me.

Bull-In-The-China Shop: This person is blinded to the things that others recognize about him. The solution to becoming a transparent person is to get feedback from those around us about the blind spots in our personality. We must ask for the feedback and be willing to respond to their input.

Aloof/Hidden Secrets: This person lives in a secret world. They don’t allow others to know about themselves. They know themselves but are fearful of letting others know. Those around them do not know them either. What do others really know about you? Have you allowed yourself to get close enough to others to share who you really are inside?

Hidden Potential: This is a combination of Bull-In-A-China Shop and Aloof/Hidden Secrets. It is the saddest of all conditions. These people don’t know themselves and others don’t know them either. This means both parties have to invest the energy to communicate and get feedback from one another.

How about you? Why not take the steps to find out who you really are in the eyes of others. It could change your life.
