Powerful Words

You will notice in today’s poem (written by Rose Hill’s brother, Everett, as he reflected on Psalm 46) an oft-repeated phrase, “I am”. This is not only the title and name by which God introduced Himself to Moses and the people of Israel in Exodus 3:14, but it was and remains a present-tense statement for all people that right now He is everything He ever has been, and everything He ever will be, saying in Malachi 3:6, “I am the Lord, I do not change.” As He has done He will do; what He has promised He will perform. Trust Him as the ever -present God who is always with His people (see Matthew 28:20).

 

I Am

-By Everett Myer

Be still

 Chill

 Choose not to fear

 For I AM here

 I AM

 I just AM

 I AM always with you

 I inhabit all life’s events

 I do not cause evil

 But when it happens

 I AM here

 I hate evil

 But it doesn’t scare me

 The evildoer cannot escape Me

 The godly are never abandoned

 I AM aware

 Of the most insignificant hurt

 As well as the most overwhelming tragedy

 You are My precious child

 I AM your provider

 Your protector

 your Director

 Your comforter

 I AM

 Love

 Truth

 Beauty

 Light

 Living water

 Bread of life

 I AM the source of your very being

 I AM

 Your creator

 Your sustainer

 I AM the sustainer of ALL creation

 I AM above all, yet in all

 If you seek me you will find me

 I AM your peace

 Your only hope for True peace

 Choose to trust me

 Choose not to fear

 Give up striving

 Give up self-effort

 Give me your unsolvable life puzzles

 Watch me work

 From beginning to end

 For I am the beginning and the end

 The end.
