Who Am I? I Am His!

 One of the most important things we can ever do as grandmas is to help our grandchildren know who they really are! This world sends so many conflicting - and flat out wrong - messages about who they are; we need to stand up and help our grandchildren know the truth of who they are . . . they are God's immensely loved, and forgiven, children! If we are going to be successful  at helping our grandchildren know this truth, we need to believe it about ourselves, first. Take a few minutes to enjoy this song from Casting Crowns - Who Am I - from their album, Casting Crowns and really pay attention to the lyrics. Make them your prayer. 

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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. / I am yours.

Whom shall I fear / Whom shall I fear / Cause I am yours.. / I am yours.


"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!" There is a lot of truth in these lyrics, we need to believe them for ourselves and help our grandchildren believe them for themselves, too!
