I Am... Whatever He Says I Am

All great truths begin as blasphemies.
(George Bernard Shaw, Annajanska, 1919)

I am



I am so glad that ignorance of the truth does not change the truth.

I am so glad that every day I have a chance to be made new.

I am so glad that I am officially tired...
because this condition is motivation to change my position
and that change is made with a change of mind.

I am convinced.

I am


no matter what you or anyone else thinks

OR whether I "forget" and act accordingly.

I am 


Sounds blasphemous.

I know.

(Especially with my imperfections.)

But it is the truth.

For I am fearfully & wonderfully made; made in His image, after His likeness.

I am 


For the greatest man, Jesus, who ever walked this earth died for me... with full awareness of my flaws.

(What a price to pay?! Usually no one pays (especially not with one's own lifefor something that is useless or worthless. But bottom line is this: He is the one & only authority on my worth. And HE said, I am to die for.)

...I know, such a sacrificial love sounds blasphemous. I know.

But again,

ignorance of the truth doesn't change the truth.

I am


I am convinced.


Oh, & just in case you were wondering,

You are



The truth, of course, is that a billion falsehoods told a billion times by a billion people are still false.
(Travis Walton)

The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.
(Winston Churchill)

[Psalm 139:14, Genesis 1:26, 1 John 4:10, Romans 5:8, Psalm 139:16]

I Am Not Alone... Just Neglectful

I used to think I felt alone 'cause I wasn't in close proximity to family & friends.


Truth is...
I feel alone 'cause I'm not company to God.
He's here.
I just neglect Him.
If He was a boyfriend, He would've dumped me by now.
Thank God for His grace, mercy, love,
but I dare not continue to abuse His kindness.

I thank God for teaching me this lesson now.
As this year bring's about a transition in my life
of which I'm sure I could easily feel lonely
I'm glad that I truly know by experience
that He is the only company
that could satisfy any relational void.
