Who Are We?

I Practiced What I Preached on Sunday.  I asked about my new name since battling my third cold of the season I was feeling rather Sick and Tired.  The answer is embedded in the following poem as well as some excerpts from the sermon.

 

“Who are we?”

Asked the Poet King

the Battle Weary Psalmist.

 

There are days I feel

just like a Breath

or a Passing Shadow

as this Shepherd of Sheep

and a Kingdom felt.

 

What is my name?

Surely not

Sick and Tired.

If I listen open-hearted

the message will come

With an eye of faith

I can almost see it written

on the wing of the messenger:

Overcoming One

Who Loves My People.

That’s a name I

can grow into.

 

My identity is not

in how I feel or

how another calls me

or sees me.

No, it is in

How my Maker made me

to be like him

Image Bearer

full of Glory

full Grace.

  1. Between the 2 of us, getting over hours of vomiting, an ear infection, and pneumonia, we too, are Sick & Tired though Trying To Be Overcomers!

    Thank you for the encouragement. Love Mary & Solomon

  2. “My identity is not in how I feel” Whew. I know this, but I daily need reminding. Thank you.
