If my memory doesn't fail me I can recall a time in my early childhood when my first grade (I think the first grade) class preformed a program for the school and our parents. I believe many of my class mates will remember this one. As all of us gathered on the stage in our costumes we waited in anticipation for our turn to go up to the mic. I was just a little guy most likely scared to death to be standing in front of people. It was my turn to go up, I walked the long stage which was actually probably only ten feet to walk, my hands were sweaty, I reached up for the mic and said "I want to be........ a artist when I grow up". I then scurried on back down the stage.
Now about 15 years later.....
............I know I have no artistic ability at all, but that's OK I still have other talents I can shoot for. Growing up I had people around me that I looked up to and wanted to become more like. As a kid I knew I could become something, but little did I know about the potential you and I really have. Little did I know about our true identity. There's a lot of things in the world that will try to tell us who we are or what we can become. But God knows who we truly are and what we can become.
This video describes our true identity and our true potential. Enjoy!
In Romans 8:16-17 it states,
"16:The Spirit itself beareth awitness with our bspirit, that we are the cchildren of God: 17:And if children, then heirs; aheirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we bsuffer with him, that we may be also glorified together."
I know that we are children of God and he loves each and everyone of us. As we come unto Christ and change and become like him we will all reach the full potential that our Heavenly Father see's in us. Don't let anyone tell you different.
