WHO I am...

Last night D and I went on a date to see the New "SON of GOD" movie, and we were so thankful we got there when we did, and got really good seats.  As we were sitting there people just kept filing in, and before long the remaining seats began to fill up.  It was so awesome to hear the usher's say, "We need three more seats, can we please make room, three more seats please."  Then to watch people moving, for their Brother's and Sister's so they too could see the movie.  I loved how when we purchased our tickets the previous shows were sold OUT, as in NO MORE ROOM.  No other movie was like that last night!  I LOVE how making JESUS famous was at the top of so many people's list last night!

As I watched this movie, it was different from when I saw "The Passion of the CHRIST" when I was a baby CHRISTIAN.  This time I have been studying GOD's word, and was able to take so much more away from the movie than just the overwhelming feelings of watching what it must have been like for my SAVIOR to be crucified on the cross for my sins, so that I ,Heather, a broken lost sinner would be reconciled unto HIM and HIS FATHER in HEAVEN.  This movie was so much more, it was the story of JESUS life, HIS time here on Earth.

I LOVED how as each story played out, and scripture was quoted in the movie, I knew that scripture, as it has been the foundation of which I stand firmly on each and every day.  I am thankful that HE captured my heart almost a year ago, and challenged me to get into HIS word, and study HIS word each and everyday. I am thankful that HE has grown and stretched my faith farther than I could have ever thought possible.  I am thankful that I am growing each day, and learning something new about HIM, and how I, Heather, am called to live my life.  I am thankful that because in learning WHOSE I am.  I now know WHO I am.

HIS Daily Teachings today is showing me WHO I am, by showing me through HIS stories in the bible.  The stories of HIS life, the encounters that HE had with other broken and lost sinner's.  It is both humbling, comforting that I can see myself in so many of HIS stories.  Never before could I have seen myself as relatetable to the people in the bible.  HE is showing me WHO I am, because HE has been teaching me WHOSE I AM for quite some time now.

 For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him." 2 Corinthians 5:21

This morning HE is wanting me to know that HE became SIN WHO knew NO SIN, as HE was sinless, so that I, Heather, a sinful person, full of sin would be reconciled unto HIM and HIS FATHER in HEAVEN.  HE is wanting me to know and understand what HIS life, HIS time here on Earth means for me, and when I know that I will have a greater understanding of WHO I am.

HE is wanting me to know that WHO I am, is a person who longs for security.  I am learning that the security I long for goes far beyond financial, and is really more centered around the fact that I long to feel as if though, and know that I belong.  HE is telling me that the security that I long for can only be found in HIM, when I allow HIM to teach, lead, and guide me through every single step of my journey.

In choosing to seek security in HIM, HE is revealing to me that I will then be living a healthy balanced life of someone who thinks healthy, and can make decisions based upon HIS TRUTH, and NOT based on my emotions.  Once again HE is reminding me that every that I have been searching for and longing for can only be found in HIM.  

HE is wanting me to know that being secure means I will approve of myself, and will be filled with the confidence of knowing WHOSE I am, and that will in turn teach me to not only know but understand, and be able to boldly declare WHO I am.  HE is wanting me to know that when I know WHO I am, I will be able to love and accept myself, even when I fall short of HIS glory.  It is then I will be able to pick myself back up, dust myself off and try again.  It is then that my failure's will no longer determine my worth, as I am learning that I am worth far more than GOLD to HIM.

"They are more desirable than gold,even the finest gold." Psalm 19:10

HE is wanting me to know that in learning WHOSE I am through HIS Daily Teachings, and I will have better understanding of WHO I am.  Today HE is teaching me WHO I am.  

I am ~ The Daughter of the KING of all Kings!!! 
I am ~ The Daughter of the LORD of all lords!!!

"Together they will go to war against the Lamb, but the Lamb will defeat them because he is Lord of all lords and King of all kings. And his called and chosen and faithful ones will be with him.” Revelation 17:14

I am ~ Saved!!!
I am protected!!!
I am ~ strong as HE is my strength!

"The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and my savior;  my God is my rock, in whom I find protection. He is my shield, the power that saves me, and my place of safety." Psalm 18:2

I am ~ Loved!!!

"For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16

" But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners." Romans 5:8

"But anyone who does not love does not know God, for God is love." 1 John 4:8

I am ~ Forgiven!!!

" But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness." 1 John 1:9

I am ~ Secure!!!

"The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and my savior;  my God is my rock, in whom I find protection. He is my shield, the power that saves me, and my place of safety." Psalm 18:2

It is comforting to me that HE has revealed HIS word to me twice today.  In knowing that I am saved, strong, protected, and secure.  I love how HE even had me take a picture for this blog that is Psalm 18:2.  I love how HE revealed this very Psalm to me right before I was to lose my 2nd baby.  I LOVE how HE has been priming me to be ready for HIS Daily Teachings, even long before I knew how much I would need HIM, and when I would grow strong enough to fall completely at HIS feet, and seek HIS wisdom and HIS guidance to teach me how I am to live.  I am in awe of how much HE loves me that HE has been setting things up for me for longer than I could possible know or understand.  I am in awe of HIS unending love, mercy and grace that HE showers upon me.

Last night as I watched the Crucifixion scene, as the tears fell from my eyes, I was comforted in knowing that it wasn't the end but rather the beginning.  The beginning of NEW LIFE, a  NEW WAY, a NEW LOVE, HIS LOVE, for me, for anyone WHO is courageous enough to go against this world and say, "JESUS, I believe YOU died on the cross for my sins, and that YOU overcame death, and that YOU love me, and YOU will reconcile  me to YOU and YOUR FATHER in HEAVEN.  JESUS please forgive me of my sins."

I am ~ NOT of this world!!!

"Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect." Romans 12:2

I am ~ Set apart!!!

" But you are not like that, for you are a chosen people. You are royal priests, a holy nation, God’s very own possession. As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for he called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light." 1 Peter 2:9

I am ~ HIS!!!

"Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you. I have called you by name; you are mine." Isaiah 43:1

Once again HE is going to great lengths to prove to me what HE has done for me, so that I will know WHO I am, because I am gaining a better, and more clear perspective of WHOSE I am.  Today I am thankful that HE loves me enough to NOT let me wonder any longer of WHO I am, and fills me with HIS unending, and unfailing love, hope, grace, mercy and forgiveness.  I am thankful that I am called to be HIS hands and feet to this world, and that I have been chosen to speak HIS TRUTH, and love as HE loves.  I am thankful that HE is blessing me with HIS vision so that I will see this world through HIS eyes.

I pray today that if you are wondering WHO you are, that you will have the courage to seek the ONE WHO knows and loves you best.  I pray that you will seek HIS wisdom so that you will be secure in knowing WHO HE is in your life, and what HE has done for you.  I pray for healing, comfort, and peace to be poured over you in your time of need.  I pray that you will know that HE will supply ALL of your needs in abundance.
