An Idea Borrowed

Years ago on a radio program someone shared that they read a chapter in Proverbs every day. Since there are 31 chapters and the longest month has 31 days it allows you to read through Proverbs on a regular basis. I use it as the launch pad for my personal worship time and branch out from there. On this blog I will try to share some of the insights I have in the Word. I will try to organize them in the archive by reference.

Who Am I?

I love Saturday mornings.  During the week I am pressed by getting to work; on Sunday, to church.  Saturdays I often have the joyful blessing of unhurried worship and study. 

Today I was able to read more in Bonhoeffer’s Letters and Papers from Prison.  In it we find an occasional poem.  Part of my personal growth involves reading poetry out loud to try and learn to value this art form.

He shared a poem he titled “Who Am I.”  After several stanzas asking this question in different ways he concluded with the lines that struck me.

Who am I?
They mock me, these lonely questions of mine.
Whoever I am, Thou knowest, O God, I am Thine!

This is a glorious reminder.  I thought I would share it with you since the nature of this blog is devotional. 

In the midst of holy week, looking at our celebration of the resurrection, in all the turmoil of our lives we are reminded:  We are His.

Enjoy tomorrow.
