I want to be the sunshine of our home.
Today I challenge you as you read this to stop and ask yourself, “who do I want to be?”
I believe us as humans begin curiously wondering about who we will be one day from a young age. We have dreams and inspire to be like the person we have dreamt of being. But how do we become that person? I believe a big part of developing into who we want to be has to begin in realizing who we need to be.
As I’m rushing making the last few preparations needed before I walk down the aisle tomorrow to the man the Lord has prepared for me, I sit back and have the reminder that God’s word has served as a mirror in my life, constantly reflecting the truth. What a blessing! In this season, it has served as a reminder of the truth involving who I want to be, and need to be. I want to be a good wife. I want to be a good mom to our children one day. I desire to be that sunshine. I need to be a wife my husband can trust. A wife that brings him good and not harm. I need to get up early to prepare my family for the day. I need to be energetic, strong, and a hard worker. I may even have to stay up late some nights, but that’s okay. I need to extend a helping hand to the poor, and open my arms to the needy. Because I want to be clothed with strength and dignity, and I want to truly laugh without fear of the future.
As you ask yourself this morning who you want to be, my prayer is that you are reminded of his reflecting truth in who you need to be. Find your identity within his foundation of love, trust, and perseverance. We need to become all he needs us to be.
