I AM

I Am
“God replied to Moses, ‘I Am Who I Am…’”
(Exodus 3:14, NLT)
I Am, God replied to Moses he is I am. He is. He is everything you need.
In the midst of your sorry I AM your refuge.
In the midst of Joy, I AM the one who brought this blessing.
I am all you need. I am The alpha and the Omega.
I am the beginning and the End.
I am your salvation.
I am your hope.
I am your joy.
I am peace brought to you.
I am love.
I am in every breath you take.
I am your refuge.
I am your strength.
I am…. all you need and more.
Today, God wants you to know that he is the I AM in your life.
What do you need or want out of life? He is the great I AM and can provide you what you need and soo much more.
Dear Lord, Today I call upon you. I know you are the great I AM. I know you are my provider, I know you sustain me, I know you bring me peace, joy, love and so much more which I am incapable of understanding. I give myself to you. TO submit myself to do your will. To trust in you who is my all, to do your works and favors. I know have provided for me in the good times and especially in the bad. I will continue to rely on you and your guidance to move on my daily tasks in your glory.
Amen.

God Conscious, Christ Centered


“And without faith it is impossible to please
God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and
that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.”
(Hebrews 11:6, NIV)

There is a Book I am reading (Woman of Mettle), it is a sequel to (Woman of Clay) both is centered during the times of and after Jesus’ ministry and crucifixion.

This this scripture made me think of a passage I read recently from this book.
“How is it possible to stay conscious of the Lord when I barely get a moment to think of him?”

This is an honest question from the protagonist. She is a mother of 3, a wife, a daughter, a sister, a daughter in law. She has to maintain order in her home, she has to submit to the demands and needs of her husband, she has daily chores and responsibilities that help the house hold function.

I am a mother to 2 boys, I am a working mother. I am a wife. I am also a dutiful daughter to my parents and help my siblings as often as I can.
I live in NYC, the city which never sleeps.

I can relate to this question from the protagonist.

How is it possible to constantly stay connected and conscious in the Lord, when with a busy schedule, the kids, the work, the house hold affairs, the daily hustle and bustle of life, how can one focus on him, when I barely get a moment to and for myself, least alone to glorify my creator. We have all been there and had that same sentiment.

The spouse of the protagonist responded in such a way where I could not help but weep, stop what I was doing and Give God thanks right there and then.

He responded: “It’s like this, If I am in the room with you when your attentions is completely take up with the children, aren’t you aware all the time of my presence, conscious of the fact that I hear every word you say to them? From time to time you catch my eye and smile and you know that I love you. Although you mihgt not speak to me much, you know I’m here even when your back is turned.”

Stop.

Reflect on what he just said.

If you were not wiping tears before I am sure you are now.(especially after reflections).

We get caught up in the hustle and bustle of life….and God is evermore present. Even when our backs are turned, even while we do our chores, work, handling the kids, he is watching us with pride, with joy, with Love, reassuring Love, even when we do not speak with God he is there.

We need to be conscious of that fact that he is evermore present in our lives.
Dealing with the children.
He is there.
Working.
he is with you.
Commuting.
He is with you.
Doing chores
He is with you.
Taking care of your home
He is with you
Taking care of your family
He is with you
Taking care of your spouse
He is with you.
God loves us.

We need to be God conscious and Christ centered in all that we do.
if you cant verbally praise and acknowledge him, know in all that you do he is therefore all you do should be in his glory.

Father I thank you for your timing in my reading that passage. I thank you because i felt like i was drowning with my responsibilities as a mother, daughter, a spouse, employee, etc. I felt and sometimes still do feel that How can I be conscious of you at all time when i feel like I could barely breathe. I know you are ever so present with me. Thank you for enlightening me. Thank you for allowing me to read between the lines and register that you are indeed talking to me. Thank you for allowing me to find the time to acknowledge and praise you in all i do.
Amen.

Dear Reader:  It is easy to lose focus in your walk with Christ in this carnal world, more so for new believers.  I ask that you listen to what is written here, know that in all you do every move you make, you give him the glory, consciously or unconsciously.  I know it is easier said than done, trust me I know.  Work, School, family, responsibilities all can take up a lot of time, but remember to always pray, even while working, always meditate, even while in school, always God First.  It is hard, but so rewarding.  I feel at Peace and I could only thank God for the peace I have despite all that is going on.

Don’t worry God is our Judge

“For exaltation (promotion) comes neither from the east nor from the west
nor from the south. But God is the Judge: He puts down one, and exalts
another.”
(Psalm 75:6-7, NKJV)
Do not fret with worldly worries or concerns.
God holds down the fort and declares judgment.
Many feel empowered by their self given authority.
We do not have any authority over another.
God has all the authority over all of us.
He is judge, healer, deliverer, redeemer.
We can travel the world, travel the country, run away from our problems, hide from our sins.
We can deceive mankind with our tales to cover our tracks.
Only God who can Judge you, can also see.
He see’s our hearts.
he see’s our actions.
He sees our faith.
he sees our repentance.
He can give, he can also take away.
Father God I thank you today for this psalm. I thank you for reminding me that you are not only God of all Gods, you are the one true living God. You are the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end, without you dear lord we are nothing. You are the Judge and one whom can condemn. I thank you Lord for all you do for me. I pray for the person reading this. I do not know your circumstance, what drew you to read this, if this even touched your soul, but I extend my prayers to you in hope that you can be filled with the Lord’s presence and blessings. May you be reminded that he is the Judge, the one true God, our redeemer. May you find peace in what you are dealing with. May you find the answers you need. May you be redeemed. May your relationship with God grow closer. Amen.

Lament but Keep hope Alive


Lamentations 3:24
The LORD is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him.

We all go through circumstances where we feel lost, hopeless and in despair.
We need to remember that we need to hold hope in him.

Even when we feel we can no longer go.
Even when we feel alone.
Even when we feel he is not around.

He is.
He’s there.
He’s watching.
He is observing.
He is omnipresent and always at your reach.
He is with you.
He is around you.
He is in you.

Have hope in him, despite one’s lamentations.
He will help you prosper and get you through the difficult times.

 

Father God I thank you for another day, another hour, another opportunity to Glorify you. Many of us have things going on in our lives which causes our hearts to lament. Many are in distress, many are in physical and emotional distress. I ask that you guide each of us, so that we can foster our hope in you. May we all continue to put our faith in you as we walk our walk in your Glory.
Amen.
