Motivate Me Monday - Who Am I to God?

Fifth Street Palace
I have been reading John Eldredge's book Waking the Dead. (Not as morbid as it sounds).

I really want to share with you some things that have revolutionized my walk with God and the way I see myself.  So my next few Motivate Me Mondays will be based on things I have learned through reading this book.

In chapter five Eldredge asks God  "What do You think of me God?  Who am I to You?"

Just ask?   What a concept.

I asked these questions of God. What do You think of me God?  Who am I to You?

I actually asked these questions twice.  The first time the only answer I received was; "You are my daughter."  Profound and disappointing at the same time.

The second time I asked this is the answer I got; "You are Ruth.  Caring, compassionate, devoted, brave, obedient, mother and wife."  You are worthy, willing, precious, loved, faithful and pleasing.

That is what my Father thinks of me.  I am in awe.

I could (and did) doubt each one of these things He said.  I could rationalize that I am not any of these things by bringing up events from my past.

God has shown me that this is the truth.  This is how He sees me and who I am to Him.  I am so thrilled to have these words revealed to me.

I want to challenge you  to ask these questions yourself and really listen to what God has to reveal to you.
