A Prayer about Identity

February 16, 2016 Rebekah E. Goodall 2 Comments

Bless these fingers and these eyes
Bless them that they know new life
Give me strength to hold on tight
I know I need your hand, your might.

Give me hope even through dark
Like a child I wish and ask
As if I know what's right for me
But your design reveals to see,

That with your perfect time and Grace
You care with me in all I face
There is no answer you don't know
No mountain task, no knot of bow

So bless these fingers, bless my eyes
Take me Jesus, be my guide.

On Saturday someone told me that I cannot find who I am in what I do, I should do what it is that I love, because of who I am. My desires are not wrong, they are part of being made in God's image. Blogging, beauty, fashion, design, friendship, teaching, feeling and dreaming is all tied into who I am and I must nurture those things, not put them away in a box, not be ashamed of them.

  1. This is such a sweet prayer. I love what you said after it too, about your talents and interests being a part of you as a piece of God's creation! A couple years ago someone told me that God really wants us to be happy, and I had never really considered that before, despite the fact that it is obviously true! Loving yourself and doing what you love is all part of that happiness that God is pushing you towards.


    1. Funny how even though I published this myself I need to read it myself too.<3
