~ SELF-TRUTH ~
"You cannot be true to God or to anyone else until you
are true to yourself."
Sr. Jeanne Koma, H.M.
I have spent much of my life role-playing. As spouse, parent, employee, addict, I have often lost myself. Who am I? Why am I here? If I played none of those roles, would I still exist?
It wasn't until I took the time to discover the 'real' me, the person God created, that I was able to be a better spouse, parent, and employee. And it was through this discovery that the addict in me began taking a back seat to the child of God that I truly am.
I cannot do God's will nor be supportive of others if I am dishonest about who I am.
When Moses asked God who He was, God replied, "I am who I am." I am also who I am. I have nothing of which to be ashamed.
One Day at a Time . . .
I must be true to myself if I wish to be of service to anyone else.
