When I was in
college I spent years trying to know myself, looking inward. But what I found inside was just darkness, selfishness, and brokenness. Those were the unhappiest times of my life.
My life didn’t change until my eyes turned outward. Out of desperation I turned to God – to Jesus – wanting to know Him. When I looked inward I saw darkness; when I looked out I saw the light of life.
The truth is that knowing God helps us to truly find ourselves. Because He created us He knows us – all our insecurities, the way our brains are wired. I want to know the One who knows me best because I am not able to know myself.
Are you searching for your identity? Get to know the kind, loving, gracious God of the universe. Find out who you are as you get to know the One who knows you.
Always remember, there is hope with God.
“The truth is that knowing God helps us to truly find ourselves. ”
