Who Am I?

 

I look up at your macro-skies, dark and enormous, your handmade sky-jewelry, moon and stars mounted in their settings. 
Then I look at my micro-self and wonder, Why do you bother with us? Why take a second look our way? 
~Psalm 8:2-4 The Message~


It's a staggering thought that I can't wrap my mind around:  The Creator and Keeper of the universe knit me together in my mother's womb, and I never leave His thoughts nor His sight!  I don't understand it, but I don't have to understand to experience His unconditional, never-ending love.  

With the songwriter I ask, "Who am I that a King should bleed and die for?"  And with another I can sing the answer:  "I'm a child of the King!"  Amazing . . . but true!

It truly is incomprehensible.

"The answer I may never know, why he ever loved me so." I'm learning to accept without understanding, why he would love me enough to die for me.
