“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Exodus 3:14; John 8:58

.

TODAY’S WORD…

.

“I AM WHO I AM.”

.

– Exodus 3:14

.

.

.

REFLECTION…

.

“I AM” is beyond time, always present.

.

“I AM” promises rest through Jesus

for those who suffer and are burdened.

.

Jesus said,

“I tell you the truth,

before Abraham was even born,I AM!”(Jn 8:58)

.

Jesus IS LORD,

Jesus IS the ALPHA and the OMEGA,

Jesus IS GOD,

Jesus IS the great “I AM”

who gives rest to the weary;

hope to all Christians;

and pours out His abundant grace over us all.

.

And He does this today

– not in some distant time and place,

but here and now!

.

.

.

A POEM…for reflection…

.

I was regretting the past and fearing the future.

Suddenly my Lord was speaking: “MY NAME IS I AM.”

He paused.

I waited.

He continued.

“When you live in the past, with its mistakes and regrets,

it is hard. I am not there. My name IS NOT I WAS.

When you live in the future, with its problems and fears,

it is hard. I am not there. My name IS NOT I Will BE.

When you live in this moment, it is not hard.

I am here. MY NAME IS I AM.”

.

– H. Mallicoat

.

.

PRAYER…

.

Jesus, my God, please help me to live fully and always in the present,

with You by my side.
