Who Am I?

“Who am I, that the Lord of all the earth would care to know my name; would care to feel my hurt? Who am I, that the Bright and Morning Star would choose to light the way for my ever wandering heart?”

And oh, do I have a wandering heart. It wanders from the path God has graciously laid out for me. It strays from His love, His peace, and His wisdom and tries to find those things from different sources. And still…in the middle of my meandering mess, God continues to pursue me and light the way. That is an out-of-this-world type of love that we can’t genuinely grasp until we start striving to get closer to God!

Who am I? Someone who doesn’t deserve God’s eternal, extraordinary love. And who is He? Someone who tells me I am His. Amazing…

For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38-39

Lyrics: Who am I, that the Lord of all the earth would care to know my name; would care to feel my hurt? Who am I, that the Bright and Morning Star would choose to light the way for my ever wandering heart?

Not because of who I am but because of what You’ve done. Not because of what I’ve done but because of who You are.

I am a flower quickly fading, here today and gone tomorrow. A wave tossed in the ocean; a vapor in the wind. Still You hear me when I’m calling. Lord, You catch me when I’m falling. And You’ve told me who I am. I am Yours, I am Yours.

Who am I, that the eyes that see my sin would look on me with love and watch me rise again? Who am I, that the voice that calmed the sea would call out through the rain and calm the storm in me?

Not because of who I am but because of what You’ve done. Not because of what I’ve done but because of who You are.

I am a flower quickly fading, here today and gone tomorrow. A wave tossed in the ocean; a vapor in the wind. Still You hear me when I’m calling. Lord, You catch me when I’m falling. And You’ve told me who I am. I am Yours, I am Yours.
