Finding Ourselves

“Finding Yourself”

I never really quite understood the meaning of this phrase, but it seems to be the “go to” saying for anyone who doesn’t really know what they want out of life. (Which once included myself)

For some people,”finding yourself” might come in the shape of:

1. A new job.

2. A new school.

3. A new relationship.

But if we take a second to look at the big picture, do any of these things actually have the power to fix the brokenness within us? Nope.

In today’s world, people are infatuated with “finding themselves,” but they forget that themselves are the ones who got them into their destructive mess in the first place. Ironic, huh?

The Reality Is: God is who we should be seeking, and He is the only one who can truly guide us out of the darkness we’ve made our way into.

We are a generation that can bring the hope of Jesus to this world, love to it’s people, and a future to it’s children. Stand up for what you believe in, and allow God to be in control of your life. Finding yourself starts by losing yourself. Allow God to take control of your life.

  1. Amen. This is exactly what I’m looking for :) God bless you, Jarrid.

  2. Hi Jarrid. To entrust God the life it means to me not to look back back and to try to forget the past, only a little seldom to allow to remember something, and also not so often to think that I will be able to change the future without the aid of the LORD, only to it in power to help us with ours not the easy future, we are created for glorification a name his Jesus Christ, we are his children, and his father. Jesus for the aid to us came that our belief in god would grow, and became boundless as love of god to us. The father heavenly will take care of us so let’s pray sincerely for our happy future, and happiness of all people. AMEN.

    when we respond to God who has already found us, we find ourselves.

  5. Thanks Jarrid and also to Bryan Totten’s comment. This is so true. We search for earthly things to fill us, complete, make us feel desired and valued, when we need to find our significence in Christ Alone.

  6. Waiting for God to fix my brokenness feels like forever but just having to keep putting my faith in thim. This post is encouraging. Thank u

  7. Amen brother. If it is your expectation that you will one day meet someone who will suddenly fix your every hurt, give peace to your every trouble, and fill your heart with love… I’m sorry, but you will be disappointed. Only Jesus has that power.

  8. Wow… glory to God.. you’re speaking to me
