People speak to me and tell me who to be. They try to cloth me with something that covers who I am in you dear God. Who they say I should be does not quite fit right. Can I find comfort in who you made me to be dear God? You hand crafted me; made me in your image; made me for your purposes; placed me here at this moment in time. Yet I often do not conform to your ways, but rather the ways of others, the ways of the world. Help me dear God to be who you want me to be. Help me to be who you designed me to be. Help me to be who I truly am in you and not in what others say I should be. May your voice resonate within me and deflect the voices that tell me I am something other than who you designed me to be. Help me to find peace in who you made me to be.

For You formed my inward parts; You wove me in my mother’s womb. I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Wonderful are Your works, And my soul knows it very well. – Psalm 139:13-14 (NASB)
