i am

i am a sinner
i hurt the people i love
i do bad things
i get mad and say things i don’t mean
i talk about my friends when i am frustrated with them
i say things to my children that i don’t mean
i have taken what was not mine
i have used my words for evil
i sin

AGAIN…

i am a sinner
I AM the One who died for your sin
i hurt the people i love
I AM the One who loves them when you fail
i do bad things
I AM the One who causes all things to work for My Glory
i get mad and say things i don’t mean
I AM the One who comforts those who have been crushed by your words
i talk about my friends when i am frustrated with them
I AM the One who you should come to when you need help
i say things to my children that i don’t mean
I AM the One who embraces the children when they are broken
i have taken what was not mine
I AM the One who is sufficient for all
i have used my words for evil
I AM the One whose words heal and give life
i sin
When all else has failed, I AM

today i pray that we all remember who we are and where we would be without the One. the ONE who loves, who forgives, who embraces, who heals, who gives life, who is sufficient. today i am thankful that although this might be me today, it is not where God leaves me. today i pray for the strength to keep going, the endurance to finish the race, the grace to give freely when others fall short, the reminder of who i am and who i have been and who i am becoming each day that i surrender to the One who supplies all. thank You for being the One and providing each person in life that helps us grow in grace, in humility, in love, in Your word, and in strength.

God says I AM

Who is He in your life today and what does that mean to you?
