Who Am I?



I love this song below by Casting Crowns.  It's really beautiful.  Nothing I do can make me have value.  I have value because I am a human being.  I have value because God made me.  I have value because the Creator of the universe gave me value.  Does that mean that I don't have to do anything because I already have value?  Nope.  Work is a gift. 


 I thought it was really interesting when I learned a while back that God gave us work before the fall of man in the Garden of Eden.  (Check it out in Genesis 2:15.  The fall doesn't happen until Genesis 3.  How 'bout them apples?) Work looks like a lot of different things.  As I record my journey on this blog, you are going to see the different things I work at.  It's not just my job.  It's my business.  It's my karate studies.  It's being a mom and a wife.  It's being a friend.  Welcome to my life.


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?

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.

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, I am Yours.

Whom shall I fear?
Whom shall I fear?
'Cause I am Yours, I am Yours.
