Are You Who You Want to Be?

So Monday was my birthday. It had been a good weekend celebrating Mother's Day and my Birthday with my family. I was receiving some really nice well wishes from friends and family, via phone, text and facebook. All of these things made me feel blessed.

But as I readied for the day, I turned on KSBJ and out comes Swichfoot singing,

"This is your Life, are you who you want to be" And I turned a little introspective.

I asked myself the question. Is my life everything I dreamed it would be?
I've always said that if you have nothing in your life you would do differently, then you have no brain.

I certainly would make better choices across my life, knowing what I know now.

But I think the most important question is not, is my life everything I dreamed it would be, but am I who I want to be?

As I pondered that question. I really sensed God speaking deep into my heart. I sensed Him saying, "Who you are will be fully realized in knowing me. Pursue me by prayer and taking my word daily to your heart."

So today I have a renewed desire to know God's word, because it will reveal the Father's heart and by His Spirit, change me into who I want to be.

Philippians 1:6
being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.

Who am I?
Whose am I?
I am His and He is mine.

"This Is Your Life"

Yesterday is a wrinkle on your forehead
Yesterday is a promise that you've broken
Don't close your eyes, don't close your eyes
This is your life and today is all you've got now
Yeah, and today is all you'll ever have
Don't close your eyes
Don't close your eyes

This is your life, are you who you want to be?
This is your life, are you who you want to be?
This is your life, is it everything you dreamed that it would be?
When the world was younger and you had everything to lose

Yesterday is a kid in the corner
Yesterday is dead and over

This is your life, are you who you want to be?
This is your life, are you who you want to be?
This is your life, is it everything you dreamed that it would be?
When the world was younger and you had everything to lose

Don't close your eyes
Don't close your eyes
Don't close your eyes
Don't close your eyes

This is your life are you who you want to be?
This is your life are you who you want to be?

This is your life, are you who you want to be?
This is your life, are you who you want to be?
This is your life, is it everything you dreamed it would be
When the world was younger and you had everything to lose

And you had everything to lose
