Who Am I?

It was near the beginning of my journey. As He always does in my life, God was reaching me through music. There was a song that touched me so deeply, I'd placed on continuous-play on my CD player. It became a quick favorite.

Casting Crowns' song, "Who am I?", seemed to give me direction. It was as if it oriented my internal compass to North. It set my path in the right direction....toward Him.

The chorus is as follows:

"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

You catch me when I'm falling
and You show me who I am...
I am Yours..."

At the time, I felt infinitesimally small - but there was great hope in knowing that even though I may be "quickly fading, here today and gone tomorrow", a mere "vapor in the wind", I was heard and protected. And when I most need to know, I am shown - "I am Yours".

The song still speaks to me.... These days it is the bridge that most "gets" 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"

It's soooooooooo not about me....

Thank you, God... for teaching me about humility...
