Bible Journaling with Diana | I Am Who You Say I Am

As soon as I saw the January kit, the song “Who You Say I Am” was stuck in my head.Photo Jan 18, 12 27 59 PM

Who the Son sets free
Oh is free indeed
I’m a child of God
Yes I am

I am chosen
Not forsaken
I am who You say I am
You are for me
Not against me
I am who You say I am

~Hillsong Worship

 

So after googling verse references that went with this song, I landed on Ephesians 2 : 4-10

 But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved. And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast. 10 For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

We are chosen. We are saved. Not because of anything we have done, but in spite of it. Because of God’s love for us. Because of our faith. There is nothing I can do to earn His love and grace. Just like there is nothing my own children can do to earn my love, or lose it for that matter; We are children of God and he treats us fairly and justly and faithfully. And he will always love us.

I created this page using the speech bubble from the stamp set and some past kit stickers. I knew the stamp would be the perfect background on this page, and would highlight the words from the song and passage that I want to remember. I used some Distress Oxide Inks that I had on hand, but the same effect can be achieved with the Creative Retreat Ink Pads as well.

I hope you take a moment today to fill your head with these truths. You are who HE says you are: loved, chosen, free, & a valuable child of God.
