Who Am I
Yesterday challenged my emotions. Before church, I received a phone call with some surprising news that gave me a second’s worth of panic and forced me to cling to God’s promises that He never leaves us nor forsakes us.
As Sunday school ended, Hubby called my cell phone with sad news about a beloved family member whose days are numbered as cancer ravages her body.
With a heavy heart and shrouded in prayer by my wonderful friend, I headed for the sanctuary. Our pianist was out sick so we sang to prerecorded music.
Each song hugged my heart with promises of hope. One particular song really touched me:
Who Am I by 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 are
Those lyrics reminded me we are not alone in our struggles. Whether we’re struggling with finances, saying goodbye to a passing loved one, dealing with job stress–or no job, praying our prodigals home, or finding the right words to say or write, God hears us when we call out in His name. When we cling to the cross we have nothing to fear. We are His.
