“WHO AM I?”

Image

The title of this song centers around a man who has been wrongfully accused, serves a sentence in prison, escapes from his bondage, loses his identity, finds a savior, makes a new life and uses it to serve others.  This lovely story isn’t just about revolution, it’s about redemption.  Sounds kind of like our lives, doesn’t it?

Each of us has been held captive by the guilt of our sin.  The devil often uses this opportunity to manipulate God’s genuine love for us.  He uses our own weaknesses to his advantage.  He makes us think that God doesn’t really care about us – he causes us to doubt – to believe that we can never live up to what is expected of us.  Satan tugs at our faith.  He weakens our defenses.  He makes us feel worthless.

The truth is that even though I continually sin and will until my dying day, God no longer sees the filth within me.  It was erased by Christ when He made the ultimate sacrifice and then rose again to foreshadow what’s in store for me when I die.

Is that the end of the story?  No!  I want everyone to share in this glorious good news.  Remembering Christ’s commission to His disciples, I am confident that I am not alone in this endeavor.  He will walk with me as I make meager attempts at sharing it with others.  He will provide the opportunity, the exact moment and the right words.

Who am I?  I am a redeemed child of the One and only God.  I am guaranteed a place in heaven.  I am a witness to his love for me through His Holy Word.  I am a Christian and I’m proud of it!

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.
