So, God, who am I?

I've been preaching for years that we should
Center on God,
Connect in Relationship, and
Change our World. 
As we center on God, I have said, we need to Know God and Know Self.

I have always thought that self-discovery happens when I pay attention to my life.  That helps, but if I really want to know myself, why not ask God?  Surely he knows.  Last Saturday I wrote out some questions I have for God about myself.  I have yet to listen for the answers, but finding the questions is a start.  Here's my list.  What would be on your list?

  • Why have you made me?
  • How am I unique and special?
  • Where is my thinking on target?
  • Where am I off base in my thinking?
  • What should I pursue?
  • What should I give up on?
  • What talents am I wasting?
  • What makes my heart sing?
  • What is my fatal flaw?
  • How can I be more fully alive?
  • What do you like about me?
  • What do you want to change about me?
  • What lessons am I failing to learn?
  • Do you care about my legacy?  Should I?
  • Why do you love me?
  • What motivates me?
  • What hurts have shaped me?
  • What successes of mine really matter?
  • What do you need me to hear from you now?
  • What are my real talents?
  • What should be my most important contribution?
  • What habits will help me become my true self?
  • What is your purpose for me?
  • How can I move beyond myself?
  • How can I delight you?
