Who am I ??


Well.... the other day I was standing in Queue at my office canteen, and I saw this boy serving tea. He was about my age, my height.. a lil more fairer thn me, and spoke my mother tounge , and so he was from my state.

And it made me think... what did I do more to get this white collared job and what did he not do, not to get it, absolutly NOTHING....... 

Is it my merit that I was born into an educated family? Is it my merit that my parents had enough money to pay for my college? Is it my merit that the job market was good when I passed out and I got a job ? Is it my merit that my state had good educational institutions?

The answer is always NO

"I was cast upon thee from the womb: thou art my God from my mother's belly." Psalm 22:10

That was my cry when I got out of my canteen !!

Who am I, that the Lord of all the earth
Would care to know my name
Would care to feel my hurt
Who am I, that the Bright and Morning Star
Would choose to light the way
For my ever wandering heart

Not because of who I am
But because of what You've done
Not because of what I've done
But because of who You're

hmm it's funny how we had similar thoughts. Except yours connected back to the Bible and I perhaps missed that part. I always think of kids who go the same school as me, who have the same opportunities as me and yet, take a different path. And then, I truly think that it's the mistakes in our lives that define who we are- not our achievements. But then again, who defines a 'mistake', who defines an 'achievement'? Everything is relative.

And I like that song.. Casting crowns =]
