Remember Who You Are..

I’m sure we all remember the scene from “The Lion King” where Simba see’s the vision of his father in a cloud. The voice calls out and says “Remember who you are”. Well, I guess I just had one of those moments. Before you think I have totally lost it, understand that I didn’t see a cloud, or audibly hear any voices. Yet those words might as well have been spoken. The moment was appropriate enough.

While I was working, I was checking out the new Jeremy Camp CD, “Beyond Measure”. In a quiet moment, I heard the words to a song called “I Am Nothing”. They rang through the office as I played it over and over again.

“I’m always in this place, where the things I seem to take, are the things I wish would fade. I always purpose in my heart to do things the right way, then I realize I’m still clay. And this piece that’s being shaped, will be a beauty you create.”

Remember Who You Are 

I was reminded that I am still clay. Boy am I still clay! I was reminded that there is a lot of work to do. 1 Corinthians 13:2 states that “…if I have faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing“. Even if I have that kind of faith, but lack something like love, patience, forgiveness or let pride, arrogance and bitterness creep in, I am nothing.

“I am nothing without Your love. I’m unworthy but Your death has been enough. I’m completed by Your touch. But I feel like I’ve been given so much.”

Remember who you are

Without God’s grace, I am nothing. The clay is nothing without the potter. Yet we are something! Who are we? We are His creation. We are His joy. We are His masterpiece. We are here for His glory. We are here for His purpose. Somehow, we are worthy of His grace.

  1. A different spin….do you think he was trying to show as many people on the highway that little magnet?? Every car in every lane?

    If he would have just stayed in the left/fast lane only 1 person would have viewed that magnet, and from what I can tell you woudn’t have been that one.

    But he chose to drive dramatically. Angels may have been guiding his car so it didn’t cause/get in an accident. If only they [all of your cautiously driving “highway neighbors] would all have the same moment of reflectiveness as you did….then it would have been quite an peculiar delivery of such a great thought!

    God works in Mysterious Ways….doesn’t he?

  2. Dennis,

    Great thoughts. I must say you were able to find hope in it better than I. Judging by the shouts and hand signals he was getting, I think you’re right in saying not everyone reflected on it as I did. Where ever he is tonight, I hope he got there in one piece…or maybe I should say one peace!

    What’s this I hear about Carolina??? I’m jealous! Indiana, Carolina….what’s the difference!
