Speaking of belonging, there’s a song I’ve been listening to over and over lately: “Remind Me Who I Am” by Jason Gray. I love how he prays for God to tell him again “who I am to You.” That’s a good prayer for me, too, because I am easily distracted. I believe the wrong messages about myself. Sin trips me up more than I care to admit even to myself. So I need the reminder, as Jason Gray ends the chorus, that “I belong to You.” My heavenly Father counts me among His beloved children.
There is true comfort here for body and soul, in life and in death.
