What Is It?

I’m still pondering the question: “I’m sure you’ve had your share of lonely moments and tears…. But in looking back over your life, what is it that has defined who you are today and what is it that keeps you going?” I can’t give an adequate answer, as my life is still unfolding. Certainly, life is made up of our choices and actions. And on further reflection, I believe we’re also defined by seemingly meaningless and painful circumstances. Even regretful moments of sorrow, loss, hurt, and despair have often been used by divine providence to define who we are now. To keep going, embrace your identity and destiny in Christ: “For I am the least… who am not worthy…. But by the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace toward me was not in vain…. (1 Corinthians 15:9, 10). Take some time to reflect, and then answer the question: What is it about you?—Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
