Who Am I?

"Who am I?" by Casting Crowns
(video taken from youtube, posted by:chabel1982)


There are times in our life that we say: "oh time is so fast!" (ang bilis ng oras..) I did not notice that time's over. We are busy in so many things. We do a lot of things, things we needed to do and things that we wanted to do. And when we take a pause and check what we've done, we ask, 'Who am I?'

Others can answer this question easily and others cannot. It is a difficult question for me. I am not saying I don't know who am I, of course I do. I can actually tell you who am I as a daughter, as a student, as a tutor, as a citizen, as a friend, as a family. This question needs more time of reflection and my answer can still change in the future. But "Who am I" really as person? This is what I wrote before when this question was asked as a homework dated 61212:

"I am a graduate of B.A. Mass Communication major in Broadcasting. I am a writer by 
heart. I haven’t written much but I do like writing. I am an English tutor.

I am a service-oriented person. I want to help other people. I want to say I am a good
daughter. I am sometimes quiet and sometimes talkative. I smile. I cry. I laugh. I reflect. I
dance. I sing but I don’t have a good  voice. I can’t swim. I love to learn something new.  
I am a loyal friend (I believe so). I’m a couch potato. I enjoy watching Korean dramas. And 
I eat kimchi. I like reading books but I just chose what I read. I am a dreamer. I love
nature. I pray. Most of all, I AM WHO I AM."

Looking back at this question, I found my answer very general. That it did not make sense
to me. Yes, those things are true and that is who I am. I believe that there is more. After 
hearing the son g"Who am I" by Casting Crowns, these lines struck me a lot.
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 are 

It is not important who I am to others and how they see me. The most important is what the things that I have done. Things I've done for others and for God. It’s also not just about the things I've done but the things that He has done to us. It is Him who made me for who I am. It is Him, who knows me very well. And I am what I am because of Him.
