Recalling Who I Am

by Mark Weinrich

When life’s complications
descend like a claustrophobic storm
I remember who I am in the Lord.

I am clay, He is my Potter.
I am a sheep, He is my Shepherd.
I am a servant, He is my Master.
I am a child, He is my Father.
I am a disciple, Jesus is my teacher.
I am a friend, Jesus calls me friend.
I am a new creature born of His Spirit,
born as a citizen into His kingdom.

His love reminds me 
that what seemed overwhelming
is merely a sea-calming passage 
with my Lord.
He is making me a message
and messenger of grace.
