One thing I know, You are not….

I know some things about you:

I know that you are not your art.

You are not your mistakes.

You are not your Title.

Remember the future is bright. But the past has memories and lessons that the future can not teach.

I know that you are not what you do.

You are not your technical expertise, or lack thereof.

You are not your voice, even though people love it when you’re on stage.

You are not what your authority figures believe about you.

You are not your blog posts, or your readers’ insane responses.

You are not your Twitter count, or your Facebook friend total.

You are not your impact.

You are not your successes, and you are not your failures.

You are not that thing in your life that didn’t work out.

You are not that thing in your life that worked perfectly.

But I also know this about you:

I know that in Christ, you are a child of God.

You are not what you do,  sometimes what you do can eat up who you are to a point that all you are is what you do.

My friends, there will come a day when you no longer create art. There will come a day when the software you use is no longer in existence. There will come a day when you no longer serve in that position. There will come a day when you quit blogging, and when people put Twitter and eight-track tapes in the same category. There will even come a day when your impact wains.

But there will never, ever come a day when you stop being a child of God. And one wise man said memory is one gift of God that death can’t take..

Ever.
