What was I writing? … oh yeah, forgetfulness.
The other night I raked through my bathroom drawer looking for my headband, (to keep my hair back when washing my face.) Where in the world is it? Then I glanced in the mirror. Oh brother, when did I slip that on? I really don’t have memory loss―or do I? I admit, however, to occasional absentmindedness.
Remember the movie, Home Alone?
Thankfully, I haven’t forgotten my kids on a family vacation. However, I can relate to frenzied Mom moments. Busyness, multitasking, and/or juggling hats only intensifies the craziness. That’s when I ask … who am I?
I know better than to let my feelings dictate my identity. For they come and go like the winter fog. I don’t want to settle for people’s opinions that change like the wind. And I refuse to listen to Satan’s accusations.
So, who am I in Christ?
In Christ …
I am chosen (Romans 8:30; Ephesians 1:4-6; 1 Peter 2:9):
- Hand-picked by God
- Adopted as His child
- Called and purposed for salvation, even though I don’t deserve it
I am called to a holy life (2 Timothy 1:9):
- Because of God’s purpose and grace before the world began
God’s call on the believer’s life results in abundant blessing. I’m all for God’s blessings, aren’t you? Here are some more benefits for the believer in Christ:
- I am blessed with every spiritual blessing (Eph. 1:3).
- I am holy, blameless, and covered in God’s love (Eph. 1:4).
- I am forgiven (Eph. 1:7).
- I am marked as belonging to God by the Holy Spirit (Eph. 1:13).
- I have been raised up to sit with Christ in glory (Eph. 2:6).
- I am God’s work of art (Eph. 2:10) … wow!
Paul prayed that God would enlighten the eyes of (our) hearts so (we) may know the hope to which He has called (us), the riches of His glorious inheritance in His holy people.” -Ephesians 1:18
If you―like me―forget who you are, look in the mirror and remember WHOSE YOU ARE. Here’s another great song by Casting Crowns, Who Am I? You can view it at this link:
Remember–you are blessed,
