I am NOT...

my weight,

my facebook friends,

my shoes,

my bank account,

my church,

my emotions,

my jean size,

my fertility,

my vehicle,

my wit,

my neighborhood,

my education,

my health issues,

my friends,

my hair color,

my blog comments,

my credit score,

my home decor,

my text messages,

my job,

my family,

my talents,

my failures,



In fact I am not even my own...





Lord-

It's not because of who I am,

but because what of you've done.

It's not because of what I've done

But because of who you are.



And you told me who I am.

I am yours.



I am yours.







(song excerpt Casting Crowns)

Thank you for writing this. We really do base our identity on all of those things, but this is a good reminder that every bit of our worth comes from God.
