Dear Daughter,

At some point, everyone notices the need for it… We wander around like a ship that has no sail without it… It may take some longer to figure out than others… But we all have to find it… That’s right… I’m talking about identity. There will come a time in your life when you may feel lost and unsure of your significance. Speaking from my own experience, I also understand how easy it is to lose sight of who you are, shifting your focus to the identity of others. I remember a time in my own life when I was so wrapped up in trying to be like other people that I completely lost myself. I just didn’t feel right. I desperately searched to reunite with my true, authentic self. I didn’t recognize this person I had become.

The truth is significance is wrapped up in your identity. And in order to find out who you are, you have no other choice except to go to the Source. The one who knew you before you ever existed… before you were even a thought… before you were conceived in your mother’s womb. The One who knows every move you will make even before it comes to pass. The One who has searched you and known you. The One who knows your sitting down and your rising up. He is the same one who formed you and designed every intricate detail about you. He not only knows your innermost being but He understands you.

So, when you feel like you don’t know who you are and you don’t know how to figure it out, spend some extra time with God. Spend time talking to Him and learning more about Him. Understand that you were made in His image. My love, never forget the more you know about Him, the more you will learn about who He created you to be. In turn, you will discover your true identity and along with that comes significance, self-worth, self-love, and confidence.

Respect the process,

Ana J.
