After much prayer and contemplation, I’ve felt God’s leading to start a blog. Not because I feel like there are many people out there who really care much for what I have to say, but because I feel God is teaching me abundantly everyday more about who He is and who I am not. Maybe there is just one other person out there who needs to hear the same things I need to hear from Him.
I’ve spent days trying to decide what my first post should contain. As I was praying in my car this morning and listening to Pandora, I heard the song “Who Am I?” by Watermark. If you’ve never heard it, please take a second to Google it. Not only is the music beautiful but the lyrics are so compelling. It’s like God said, “Here’s your post.”
Who am I
That You would love me so gently?
Who am I
That You would recognize my name?
Lord, who am I
That You would speak to me so softly?
Conversation with the Love most high,..
Who am I?
I could sing those words back to Him over and over again. Who am I? Who am I that God would love me so gently and so greatly and so perfectly? Who am I that God would call me by name? Who am I that the God of the universe would speak to me, not with words of judgment, but with soft words of grace?
And that’s what this blog will be – a conversation with the Love most high. Like you, I’m just an ordinary girl but by God’s lavish grace; He’s given me an extraordinary treasure. My prayer is that He would be glorified in me.
