Who Am I?


That is a question that I am asking right now. And I simply don’t know what the answer is, or will be.

I feel like I have disappointed my daughter – she wanted to make vacation plans with us and now our finances won’t allow us to do this. I feel like I have added a burden to my hubby – he now has to carry the full financial support of our family. I feel as if I have let down the people of the church I serve – not being able to inspire and motivate and lead them into fully being the church. I know much of this is silly, but … it’s how I feel at the moment.

I feel as if I have disappointed God more than anything else – did I not love His people enough? did I not have the right attitude? did I try to do things in my will and not his?

These are questions I will wrestle with for awhile. And until I find the answers I am just going to rest in the assurance that HE knows my name and I am HIS.

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.

Bridge:
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.

Chorus: 
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..

(Lyrics by Casting Crowns)

Yes, Lord … I am YOURS

  2. You may struggle with knowing the truth now, but it will be revealed in time. Part of the truth is: you are victorious in your obedient and humble service. I know and have seen God work through your ministry. I pray for you to understand this transition and His peace until it is revealed to you. In Christ’s love.

    • Thank you Marty for your prayers and your sweet words of encouragement. I grieve for the possibilities but rejoice in all the work that has been accomplished, knowing full well that God has a purpose for me and a plan for my life. DeColores brother!
