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.

This is the chorus of the song by Casting Crowns "Who am I?". I thought it was a beautiful song, based of a verse that is very close to the one this blog is based off of. The passage it is derived from is found in James, and I find it to be an amazing piece of Scripture. This song captures the amazement I feel when I think about the fact that the very God who spoke the earth into existence also loves me enough to count every hair on my head! He knows everything. He knows how many freckles I have, He knows what I like, He knows what I don't like, He knows what things and words will speak to me the most. He knows everything about me. Who am I to deserve that? I deserve naught but Hell, but the hands of God, those awesome, inspiring, nail-pierced hands, caught me when I fell. And they gently molded me more and more in the image of my Savior. And they still are. And they still will.

This wonder never ceases to amaze me. I don't think that any words that I could write, nor amount of words that I could write, could accurately describe just how... glorious God is. How just, how merciful, how forgiving, how loving, how caring, how jealous, how humble, how majestic He is! God is worthy of everything, all the glory. He's above all things. But He calls us His own. How humbling, and awesome is that? When I picture it in my head.... I see myself bowing my head before Him, the gratitude showing itself in the form of tears wetting my face. Because truly I cannot sum up in words what it means to me. God took me from the hands of death and offered me a life I do not deserve. Who am I?


  1. The beginning of your last paragraph made me think of these verses,

    "Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways!

    “For who has known the mind of the Lord,
    or who has been his counselor?”
    “Or who has given a gift to him
    that he might be repaid?”

    For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen."
    (Romans 11:33-36)

    The greatest of our Lord is truly vast and incomprehensible.

  2. That is a beautiful song and an even more beautiful post. =P How true. Who am I that God would care about every single thing that concerns me.
