Who Am I?

"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're
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
I am Yours
Whom shall I fear
Whom shall I fear
'Cause I am Yours
I am Yours
Another great song, Who am I that Lord would care to know MY name and to feel MY hurt. Why do I deserve that? Why should HE care? I think we all ask ourselves that now and then. I know I do. It's amazing to think that He took the time to create me and to design every detail of who I am. He created me in HIS image, carefully, lovingly and compassionately. He loves me for who I am. Does that give you chills like it does me?
The end of the song is my favorite... Whom shall I fear? Because I am YOURS. Why should I be afraid when I know God is protecting me? What a powerful statement! I don't have much to say, except this. Remember that God created You, and that He created you with a purpose. You may not know what your purpose is just yet, like me, but He has a plan for you. Do not fear this world and the barricades Satan shoves infront of you. BREAK THROUGH THE BARRICADES and allow God to show you the way :)


Long Overdue!

2 Corinthians 5:7 says, "We live by faith, not by sight."

Jeremy Camp's song entitled, "Walk by Faith" is one of my favorite songs. Here are the lyrics:

Will I believe you when you say
Your hand will guide my every way
Will I receive the words You say
Every moment of every day
Well I will walk by faith
Even when I cannot see
Because this broken road
Prepares Your will for me
Help me to RID my endless fears
You've been so faithful for all my years
With the one breath You make me new
Your grace covers all I do yeah, yeah , yeah, yeah, ya
Well I will walk by faith
Even when I cannot see
Because this broken road
Prepares your will for me
Well I'm broken- but I still see Your face
Well You've spoken- pouring Your words of grace
Well I will walk by faith
Even when I cannot see
Well because this broken road
Prepares Your will for me
Well I will walk by faith
Even when I cannot see
Well because this broken road
Prepares Your will for me
Hallelujah, hallelu
I will walk by faith,
I will walk by faith....
I struggle with that sometimes... we must WALK BY FAITH and NOT BY SIGHT. I have to believe that Jesus is with me everyday, walking this walk with me, taking this journey with me even though I can't see Him. I am long overdue for an update, and I thought this was the perfect oppurtunity to share that song. It's been a little over a month now since I last blogged and since I moved into our new home, to a new state and new town. It's kind of surreal, but its starting to grow on me. I miss my family a lot, but I know this is going to help me grow as a person, in my relationship with my husband, and in my relationship with Christ. I finally found a new job, it's at a local cabin rental company, they have some BEAUTIFUL cabins. If you'd like the link, let me know, I'll be happy to show you some of the cabins we offer :)
Justin is still at Walmart, I'm so glad that I got out of that place. I will NEVER work in retail again! Justin's also been having a lot of problems with his truck, but we got that worked out today and we're taking it to get it fixed tomorrow. God is MIGHTY!
And we also celebrated our first wedding anniversary on September 15th... actually the DAY of our anniversary SUCKED, but the past week in NC was very nice. We hung out with both of our families, spent a day in Asheville just piddling around and went out to eat. We went to the same restaurant Justin took me to on our first date, which was on Valentine's Day of 2006. It's a great little Mexican Restaraunt in our hometown, and we haven't found another one we like better!
I guess that's it for now, a lot more has happened, but if I went back and tried to tell you everything that happened this month you'd be reading an entire book! God Bless!
