“Who am I?” I cannot say these words without hearing the voice of Derick Zoolander as he gazes into a street puddle, only to realize that he doesn’t know.
Henri Nouwen seems to have an understanding…If you are up for giving him 17 minutes of your life, this concept has the potential to change you for much longer.
To be God’s beloved isn’t a new thought, but it is a necessary one. Too often I allow my achievement, my humor, my speaking, my sarcasm, or my failures to define me. So Mr. Zoolander, the transformation of my heart must begin by recognizing that I am God’s beloved. That is when I understand the foundation of who I am.
Today I stop acting and start being.
