Most Glorious Heavenly Father,
               Who am I…that You would know me out of all the millions of people in this world at this time? Yet You knew me before I was born. You know my every thought, dream, desire, secret…You know me far better than I could ever know myself.
               Who am I …that You would even look at me? I am nothing compared to Your goodness and majesty. Even my very best is filthy compared to Your Holiness and Pureness.
               Who am I …that You would love me with a passion which can never be measured or described. Who am I that You would send Your Son to die for my sins so I could live with You for all eternity?
               Who am I …that You continually watch over me and guard me with Your awesome presence. You are always thinking of me. No matter how hard I try to keep You on my heart and mind at all times, my mind wanders. Yet Yours never does. You are forever faithful.
               Who am I…to think my plans and ideas could ever be better than Your ways? Forgive me when I try to get ahead of You; when I try to push my way through; when I have the audacity to tell You how something should be done.
               Who am I…but a short breath of air on this earth; here today and gone tomorrow. Who am I that You would chose to use me for Your kingdom work despite my weaknesses, limitations and shortcomings?
Who am I…that You would comfort me with Your Spirit when I am hurt; that You would revive me when I am weary; that You would guide me when I am unsure; that You would cleanse me when I am dirty; that You would make me bold when I am full of fear; that You would make me speak when I would rather be quiet; and that You close my mouth when I would rather speak?
Who am I …that You sing songs over me? That You never let me go? That You are continually making me new? That You are so patient and merciful to me? That You have promised to always be with me?
Who am I …that You would hear my prayers before they are spoken; that You created me to follow You, to obey You, to listen to You, to shine out for You?
Who am I…? I am but one miniscule person made by You out of all that has been, is now or ever will be. I am Yours and You are mine- though You are Lord God Almighty and are the Most High and Holy! Who am I…just one among many who serves, worships and adores the Great I AM!

“When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You have set in place, what is man that You are mindful of him, the son of man that You should care for him? You made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honor.”  Psalm 8:3-5
