I am the sum of all the experiences in my life. Good or bad. Success or failure. Victory or defeat. My walks in the valley make me who I am just as much as rejoicing on the mountain tops.

I am the sum total of my friends. We do have a choice who influences our lives. It is the people who we let in. Those that we let in closer, influence more. I am made up of all the people that I have allowed in my life.

I am who God created me to be. I am unique and an individual. If we were all the same then life would be pretty boring. There is a purpose on earth that I can only fulfill. That is why God created me to be who I am.

I am not my what ifs, my might of beens, or my going to be's. I am not might up of risks that I did not take, choices I did not make, or chances that I missed.

I am who God intended and created me to be.

When I live in my own little world I live in a very small place. The issue with my own little world, I am not happy there. I am not satisfied there. I can not do what God has called me to do there.

Today, where do you live? Who are you living for? Who is your life all about?
