I know who I am

For the past few Sundays in church we've been singing the song "I Know Who I Am." As I was worshipping and singing along (yup, I'm the one who sings slightly too loud next to you) various implications of the words came pouring into my mind.

"I know who I am, I am yours."

Even when I feel like a failure, I am the Lord's.

When I feel cheated, slighted, ignored or abandoned, I am still HIS.

It doesn't matter many things remain on my "to-do" list, it doesn't matter that I don't cook or bake as much as I would like to for my family. It doesn't matter that vegetables aren't always served every day.

When I know I've disappointed God, my family or friends. When I haven't lived up to my own potential.

I still belong to Jesus. He made me. He chose me. He gave me the life I live.

As long as I keep that in perspective, everything else will fall into place.

I know who I am. I am a child of God. I am the wife of my husband. I am the mother of my children. The daughter of my parents, the sister of my siblings. These things don't change. I know who I am.

I am yours Lord. And you are mine. Jesus, you are mine.

(and if you ever get the chance to see Israel Houghton in concert...it's an incredible worship & music experience)
