Who I Am

Today is a busy Sunday so I thought I'd keep it simple today.  I am a huge fan of Christian music. Jason Gray and Francesca Batestilli are two of my all time faves along with Jars of Clay. The first time I heard Jason Gray's song "Remind Me Who I am", I felt so many emotions. This song is about remembering who we are and who God has called us to be.  The video is such a beautiful reminder of this promise.

For me, I am called to be a Diaconal Minister, a granddaughter, a niece, a friend, a sister, and a daughter; a daughter of someone who daily lives and struggles with a mental illness. This song is a song I crank up the radio and belt out to because it is such a beautiful gift. In fact, in the midst of our brokenness, God says, "You are broken and loved....remember that I; that I will never leave you or forsake you.


And in the midst of this #write31 days challenge, I have found so many great blogs and posts. Today I would like to share just a few. My new friend TM is sharing about her own journey of depression. Her posts are so honest and vulnerable. I think many people will be blessed by her sharing. Check out her blog at Tales from a Southern Catholic Momma! And if you haven't read this post (Hey Beautiful!) yet, YOU MUST!
 
Have a blessed Sunday my friends!

  7. Love that song, and I have also been devouring the series from Tales From A Southern Catholic Momma. I remember meeting Jars of Clay MANY years ago when I was a teenager lol.

  8. I am going to have to come back to this when I have a free minute to listen to this song uninterrupted (such is life with three kids!), but I wanted to thank you so much for sharing my blog. You are such a sweet friend and I am so thankful to God for this opportunity to get to know you! Love you, my friend!

  9. Tara, I love Jason Gray too. "Remind Me Who I Am" and "Nothing Is Wasted" helped get me through a very rough time this past year. Also, I Will Find A Way makes me cry, it is so beautiful.

    Your blog is beautiful and encouraging. So thankful I found it.

    Blessings, Mary Clare
