Who Am I?

You know it's so strange sometimes when you're just driving around and you're totally bogged down by so many worries and what to do next ... we have a long "to do" list and a full calendar ... we think we're so in control and all is gonna be just great because we say so. And wham bamm God just shuts you up and makes you quiet and listen (cos we seldom give him the time of day to speak to us!) This happened to me in the car and this song was on ... and altho I've heard this song many times, it suddenly came alive to me. And I am humbled and reminded of my source, my ultimate source, without Whom I am nothing. It's so wonderful and fearful to be reminded that I am not my own.

Check out this song, it's brilliant . I love studying song lyrics. I am always enthralled by the beautiful way people string words together to convey exactly how they feel :)

Casting Crowns - Who Am I

(from the self-titled album Casting Crowns)

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're

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

I am Yours
Whom shall I fear
Whom shall I fear
'Cause I am Yours
I am Yours
