The Great “I AM”

Photo by Stacey Koenitz R on

I was there, where you are,

thinking strong but being weak.

Believing what I wanted,

when I wanted, where I wanted.

But it isn’t ABOUT me;

it is through and with and in “I AM.”

This is how I came to know,

what I’ve come to be.

Jesus Said, I AM THE TRUTH!

But I often found stretching the truth was easy.

He Said, I AM THE WAY!

But I thought I had a better way.


But with all my sins, the darkness was my comfort.

Yet he didn’t give up on me.

He again sent the Holy Spirit,

who moved within my Soul.

Keeping the good and tossing out the bad,

a change was surely taking place.

The Angels took the darkness away.

They gave me the path of LIGHT,

and the TRUTH exposed HIS plan.

It was suddenly clear there was a better WAY!

It was time to recognize “I AM.”

I now know that in giving myself over to Him,

“I AM” is here with me and I am strong;

in my thoughts and in my deeds.

I am grateful, I am thankful,

I am forever His holy servant,

Yes, I believe in the Word, and the great “I AM”

    So Beautiful 🙌🏼. During lent I found myself meditating often on John 8:58. “Truly truly I say to you, before Abraham was, I Am.” It is awe inspiring, and a great comfort all at once.
