It's Good to Know Who I Am

(1 Peter 2:9)

What to know about this song:

The world today is chock full of different directions for a person to be pulled in.   Insecurities and anxieties run rampant, and far too young is the age that they first start whisking people away. 

All kinds of groups of people will tirelessly attempt to convince your children to identify with them.  Many of those groups are not inherently bad, but the social pressure they can put on kids can be pretty scary.  I feel that it’s of the utmost importance for kids to know that God, being the sovereign Creator of life, REALLY knows what He's talking about when He says something about who some one is!  And to top it off, the things He says about His children are absolutely marvelous!!  No amount of self-esteem or image security (though these are not bad things!) is going to ever stack up to the things God says in His word about you and your kids.

This is a song that I wrote to tie a whole album together, an album that’s all about the incomparable and undeniable peace of knowing exactly who you are as God’s creation, and ultimately who you are in Christ.

Let the subject matter of this song ease its way into conversations with your kids about who they are.  Take every opportunity possible to expose them to truth about who God says they are, and spare them the identity crisis!

Lyrics:

I am God’s creation, an artful masterpiece
A light to shine for everyone I know
I’m a child of God, and I’m always in His hand
He teaches and he guides me as I grow
These are things the Bible says
And so there is no doubt
These are things I never want to forget about
It’s good to know who I am, I am
It’s good to know who I am
The Lord helps me to understand
It’s good to know who I am
What God says about me I always know is true
What God says is what I’ll hold onto
God has big plans for me, much bigger than I know
And nothing comes between His love and me
I’m always taken care of ‘cause God’s still in control
Nothing happens that He doesn’t see
I’ll never have to be afraid of what might lie ahead
I’ll always choose believing in His truth instead
It’s good to know who I am, I am
It’s good to know who I am
The Lord helps me to understand
It’s good to know who I am
What God says about me I always know is true
What God says is what I’ll hold onto
