Who Am I?


What is man that you are mindful of him?—Psalm 8:4

Having had the opportunity to teach Genesis 1 at our women’s Bible study at church this week, I have been so emotionally moved by the magnitude of creation: the glory, wonder, awe, and enormity of God’s power, creativity, and goodness in his design of the universe.  Incredible!

My mind has flooded with memories of being stopped dead in my tracks, so stirred by the splendor of nature, by experiences of creation that have taken my breath away causing me to pause out of reverence.

Who am I that the God who spoke a word and the Napoli coast in Kauai was formed, who spoke and the Havasu Falls in the Grand Canyon suddenly existed from nothing, who declared the goodness of the little creatures who inhabit the tide pools at Crystal Cove…who am I that He should even know my name?

This world proclaims the splendor and goodness of our Lord, and I am astounded that such a great and mighty God has declared me to be a bearer of His image.  Yet, I am also humbled by my smallness as one little created being in this enormous universe.

How is it that the Creator of heaven and earth is mindful of me?  Who am I?

One response to "Who Am I?"

    It was a joy meeting you at Starbucks last week! I read Isaiah 43 earlier this week and have also been in awe of God’s glory, majesty, and love for us. Who am I that he CALLED ME BY NAME?! I hope this brings the joy to your hear that it did to mine:

    Isaiah 43:1-2
    1 But now, this is what the LORD says?
    he who created you, O Jacob,
    he who formed you, O Israel:
    "Fear not, for I have redeemed you;
    I have summoned you by name; you are mine.

    2 When you pass through the waters,
    I will be with you;
    and when you pass through the rivers,
    they will not sweep over you.
    When you walk through the fire,
    you will not be burned;
    the flames will not set you ablaze.
