One of my earliest memories consists of my dad’s death. Shortly thereafter, a handy man, who became my step-father, showed up to help a poor pregnant widow with work around her property. He was a strong, handsome man until he drank. Then he became a physically abusive alcoholic. A father has many roles and one of those roles is to give his children a centre or roots, if you will. Knowing they can trust their father, children develop a sense of security within. Needless to say, I grew up not really knowing who I was or where I belonged. Struggling with my identity day by day. Until at the age of eight, after asking Jesus to come and live in my heart, I accepted God as the only Father I would ever have. That joyful moment lead me into a deep meaningful relationship with our creator. One life changing day, I realized that I didn’t trust him at all and I had to make the conscious decision and effort to start. It has been a rocky road but I have learned my lessons well. As a result of getting to know God more and more, my character grows stronger and liking myself becomes easier. Today I can say I trust him 100%. Knowing with certainty that He knows and wants the absolute best for me and is hard at work to that end. After all it is a mutual interest of ours. Trust me when I say his promises are worthy of trust. On a scale of 1 to 10, how much have you learned to trust the one who loves you the most? It makes all the difference within your identity!
