Who am I?
I’m a worrywart. I eat too many brownies. I spend half my allowance on stress relief lotion and clearance clothes at Old Navy. Sometimes I talk too much. Sometimes I don’t talk at all. I enjoy being different. I love operas, Jesus, ballets, cheesecake, and Audrey Hepburn. I obsess over being successful and being perfect way too much. I always feel the need to be better at everything and to be loved by everyone.
But here’s the truth.
I will not being using the term “I’m only human” as an excuse tonight. Because we are all human. We all do life in our own way. And life isn’t fair, but it isn’t fair for everyone, which makes it fair.
The excuse I will be using is this: I’m only Megan.
When God created me, He had a plan. Let me repeat that.
When God, The Lord of heaven and earth and all things in it, created me (Megan), He had a plan. He had a purpose. He had a reason. So why do I worry so much about my life, when it’s not even mine? Why do I push myself so hard to succeed academically, athletically, musically, and spiritually when I could just chill and let God take over? Why do I always feel the need to impress others, when my audience of one, my One True King, is constantly saying, “Daughter, I am already so deeply in love with you, just live to please me.” Why do I do all of this? Why do I stress?
Because I’m only Megan.
But this is not a ‘downer-blog’. Because there’s great news in all of this.
Jesus loves me.
He loves me.
He loves me because He created me.
He created me because He loves me.
So who am I?
I am a daughter and a friend of my wonderful Creator, in whom I am madly in love with.
That is who I am.
