Don’t Google My Name Yet

Don’t Google My Name Yet

Someone found my blog by Googleing:  Joel Malm Author.

It kind of made me feel awkward. I don’t feel comfortable taking on that identity. I’m not an author yet. An author has to have something published.

Makes me think of a verse that makes me feel just as awkward:

Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is. 1 John 3:2

That’s quite a statement. I can see calling myself a child of God in the future, once I’ve got some successes under my belt.  But now, I’m still flubbing my way through.  Trying to figure out how to find my voice and get my act together.

But somehow God sees me for something I can’t even see in myself. He’s sees what his grace has made me. So I’ll do my best to walk with the title Child of God. It’s an identity I can hold onto even if I am never granted the title Author.
