Do you ever feel scared to be fully who you are?
While in college, this is definitely something that I have struggled with! It’s hard to explain but sometimes I feel as though I’m in a shell that I’m scared to come out of.
The other day, I heard this quote that really struck a chord with me. I wish that I could remember it word for word but it went something like this:
The more that God is present within you, the more “you” that you will become. Since He created you and your personality, you will be the most true you whenever He is fully present within you.
In other words, since God is the one that created us, the larger that His presence is within us, we can be even more confident in the person that He created us to be.
“For am I now seeking the approval
of man, or of God?
Or am I still trying to please man?
If I were still trying to please man, I
be a servant of Christ.”
We are only servants of Christ when we truly believe Him and when His love fills us. If you are like me, come out of your shell with me and learn that God created us exactly as we are with a purpose! Be confident in knowing that and let His love fill you as you become more focused on God and His love and His glory rather than what mere, imperfect people may or may not think of you!
Be confidently you!
Be filled with God’s love :)
