If someone were to ask “who are you”? What would your immediate response be? For most of us, it would be “I wish I knew.” An identity crisis is described “as a time when you lose track of who you are or do not feel happy with who you are and want to change your life”. We may say who we are in our lives is what we do, but that is just a role. True peace and joy fulfillment only comes when your heart is fully surrendered to God and He is that treasure that you search for with every ounce of who you are.
