I want you to know my name
I want you to know my fears
I want you to know my talents
I want you to know my heart
I want you to know my failures
I want you to know my strengths
I want to be known…but not by you.
Cause see when I am known by you I go after being known for what I can do, what I can say, how well I can perform, what I can dream up, and what I can give you. I fall into the trap of labeling myself a dreamer, a creative, a blogger, a communicator, a fill in the blank.
I become someone who I want you to know me for, but not who I am truly am. Its like I am a train. A train that is running down a track. sounding its horn. letting you know its coming through. hoping that you hear it. hoping that you will take notice.
The desire to be known is a never ending track that will lead to my disaster…that is if the desire to be known is to be known by you.
I want to be known by Him.
Not for the things I can do, not for the clothes that I wear, not for the words I can say, not for the things I can type, but simply be known as His son.
I truly hope that you are known.
I know this is a personal question, but I ask that you reflect this wee on what you are known for. By others and by God.
