Remind Me Who I Am

This might be a rhetorical question, but have you ever fallen for someone you knew wasn’t good for you? Even further, have you ever stayed with someone who continued to hurt you? It’s an idea that is both complex and simple at the same time. We want love, all of us… and we often can’t seem to see that we deserve better. You want to believe that someone will be different with you: try harder, care more, but the truth is if you have to convince someone to see all the wonderful things about you, then they are not worth the pain.

The saying goes that love is blind and while that is true, one could look at this expression from another perspective; that when you are in love, you’re often “blind” to the faults of another. This can be a good thing when it comes to quirks, because everyone has them and they are endearing, the problem comes when we are blind to mistreatment.

I think too often we sell ourselves short saying “we are fine where we are” and “who knows what would happen if we risked something else.” Or, we fall prey to the old “maybe it’s me” lie. But the truth is we are worth far more than we let ourselves believe. And that’s reality.

You will be OK, better than OK in fact if you break the chains of cyclical hurt. Someone will be there to catch you when you stumble, and that is the Lord. If you can’t seem to see your own worth, then don’t look to yourself to find it. Your identity is not found in your appearance, income, education or relationship status, it’s secure in Christ. Because of the cross we are redeemed, we are set free. We are children of the King, and no one, no failure, no “single” status could ever mess that up.

What society labels us isn’t our identity. As the result of what Jesus did for us in taking our place on the cross, we are given an unshakable, worthy identity. And if someone treats you as something other than God’s beloved child, then they are not the right one. And no rush, God has someone perfect already picked out just for YOU!

The song “Remind Me Who I Am” by Jason Gray speaks of our new identity found in Christ Jesus. With that truth, we can do all things.

Philippians 4:13

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

Galatians 2:20

“20 I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.”

“Remind Me Who I Am”
When I lose my way,
And I forget my name,
Remind me who I am.
In the mirror all I see,
Is who I don’t wanna be,
Remind me who I am.
In the loneliest places,
When I can’t remember what grace is.
Tell me once again who I am to You,
Who I am to You.
Tell me lest I forget who I am to You,
That I belong to You.
To You.

When my heart is like a stone,
And I’m running far from home,
Remind me who I am.
When I can’t receive Your love,
Afraid I’ll never be enough,
Remind me who I am.
If I’m Your beloved,
Can You help me believe it.

Tell me once again who I am to You,
Who I am to You, whoa.
Tell me lest I forget who I am to You.
That I belong to You.
To You.

I’m the one you love,
I’m the one you love,
That will be enough,
I’m the one you love.

Tell me once again who I am to You.
Who I am to You.
Tell me lest I forget who I am to You,
That I belong to You, oh.

Tell me once again who I am to You.
Who I am to You.
Tell me lest I forget who I am to You,
That I belong to You.
To You.
