My Identity - I am His!

      Sometimes I forget whose child I am.  I forget the price God paid to adopt me.  I forget that who I am is actually defined by whose I am.  That's when I need to once again spend time pouring over this incredible list of what the Scriptures tell me is true about me.... how God sees me, because I am forgiven in Christ!
