Who Am I?

“I am as a wonder unto many; but thou art my strong refuge.” ~Psalms 71:7

2010 will be noted in my memory as one of the hardest years of my life…and one of the most revealing. Living with the daily physical struggles and misunderstandings of debilitating illness, my identity and life purpose became muddied with the additional tumult of external issues in my life. Drowning in the sludge, my soul became void and I lost me in blackness.

I was completely alone…without family near or a single friend. Like Elijah, God nurtured my spirit in my solitude of lonely despair, caring for me, healing my spirit, loving me. Leaning only on God, I immersed myself in prayer and scripture. He revealed His presence by being with me during the struggles of living alone with my illnesses, my strength. I felt His warm embrace when I sobbed in prayer, my comfort. Emotionally broken, I felt His love, my healing.

Who am I? I am a child of my Savior. His creation. A wonder. I am Debbie. He is my strong refuge and I am unconditionally loved. I am His.
