What Is Being Human?

14 May 2012, 09:06

Quick and to the point answer to Summer Spring’s, What Is a Christian http://www.news24.com/MyNews24/What-is-a-Christian-20120511

When I say ‘I am what I am’ it is not because I am lost.  God might have lost me but I always know where I am.  It might not be where I want to be but more importantly I know where I am heading. 

When I say ‘I am what I am’ it is with pride not arrogance but with pride.  I stumble too but I get up, dust myself and continue the journey.  I don’t have a crutch because I am able.

When I say ‘I am what I am’ it is not because I am trying to be strong but because I know I am strong.  I do have weaknesses however but I am strong.

When I say ‘I am what I am’ I am not bragging of success because I know I am successful.  I can brag because I clean my own mess but I don’t because my successes are personal achievements and so is everybody else’s.

When I say ‘I am what I am’ I am not claiming to be perfect.  My flaws are far too visible but I believe I am worth it.  It is not important if God or others think I am worth it but what is important is that I believe I am worth it.

When I say ‘I am what I am’ I also admit I experience pain.  I have my share of headaches too but I manage them and remain thankful since others have it worse.

When I say ‘I am what I am’ it is because I don’t want to be holy.  Being holy is a sign of arrogance, a self-proclaimed chip on the shoulder.  I don’t need grace because I don’t require to be excused for my mistakes.

I don’t offer excuses because I don’t need to be excused for who I am.  Where I falter I apologize and where I stumble I take personal responsibility.  When I fail I learn, grow and retry.  It is not important what God or the world think of me because they have not walked a mile in my shoes but what is important is what I think of me.

Bloodlust

This man had a mother. A father. He was perhaps a brother, a friend, a lover. This man had a purpose. He had a dream. He had a life. He had laughter and love and hope waiting for him. Read more...

Many conclude that Yemen is yet another step towards the cataclysmic sectarian war and , quite possibly, the trigger that leads the region to this ultimate battle. I, for one, can find no reason not to hold a similar position. Read more...
