Who Am I?

Woke up with this Scripture and this song on my heart this morning, and closing the day with them on my heart tonight.  Amazed that He loves us, that He is intricately involved in every detail of our lives, that He has had a plan for each one of our lives since before the beginning of time.  What a thrill to be able to see glimpses of His glory and bits and pieces of His plan.  And then the joy when He allows us to be part of that plan...learning so much these days about seeing obedience as a joy rather than a chore.  

O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!
You have set your glory above the heavens.
Out of the mouths of babies and infants,
You have established strength because of your foes,
To still the enemy and the avenger.

When I look at 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, 
And the son of man that you care for him?

Yet you have made him a little lower than the heavenly beings
And crowned him with glory and honor.
You have given him dominion over the works of Your hands;
You have put all things under his feet,
All sheep and oxen, 
And also the beasts of the field, 
The birds of the heavens, and the fish of the sea,
Whatever passes along the paths of the seas.

O Lord, our Lord, 
How majestic is Your name in all the earth!
~Psalm 8

Loved this post. I especially like the idea of "seeing obedience as a joy rather than a chore."
