Who am I?

Unknown-1Hello, My name is... (click here for a music video)

“Hello, my name is defeat. I know you recognize me. Just when you think you can win, I’ll drag you right back down again. Til you’ve lost all belief”   is pouring through my head this week. This song, this moment of truth. This song, Hello, My Name,is by Matthew West.  

“Oh, these are the voices. Oh, these are the lies And I have believed them for the very last time.”

” Hello, my name is….”

What pours in my head is not the next line in the song.  I wonder, how many of us are the same and why? (If you haven’t heard the song, take the time to watch the video.) We like a song like this. It’s beautiful. This should reflect that defeat and the other things that named are lies.

“Hello,  my name is…”

Hurt

Control Freak

my past

anxiety

imperfect

people pleaser

Never good enough for the world.

This is what the world wants me to believe that  I am. The world wants me to buy into the defeat, regret and being defined by my past.

“Hello, my name is…”

What is my name? Who do I belong to? Who has my heart?

“Hello, my name is…”

 Child of the one true King. I’ve been saved, I’ve been changed, I have been set free. “Amazing Grace” is the song I sing.”

Who am I? I am the child of the one true kind, whom  I serve. My identity comes from the Him and nothing else. On the really bad days, I turn up the volume, sing this with all my heart that reaches the heavens and prays that on that bad day, my disbelief is taken from me. I then know my what my true name is.
