What is in a title? Most people, myself included, place a lot of importance on who we are and our identities by our titles. But what is in a title? I have been thinking about this and trying to figure out how I feel about my titles. Originally, it came up because I was not able to volunteer in two different capacities within the last 6 months. I missed the activities and they both meant a lot to me… I placed value in these titles. I liked being associated with these volunteer opportunities.
But then I lost those titles. I was sad about losing them because I really enjoyed volunteering in these separate roles.
Then more recently I started to think about titles more in-depth. I realized all the titles we have are essentially temporary. I realized that during our lifetime, potentially all our titles will be lost. It a sobering thought and morbid at the same time. That realization did not feel too good.
There have only been a handful of times I truly felt the Holy Spirit nudge my heart in a very simple and specific, yet profound way at three major crossroads in my life. The Holy Spirit in these moments changed my outlook and course of major decisions.
