You can tell from the date of my last post that I have been absent for a while. I have been in this odd place for about the last week. A place that I don't really enjoy. I guess you could say I have had "the blues". I would like to say it is hormones, but I don't really think that is what it is. I think I have let the world get to me. News of more people I know loosing their jobs, loosing their homes, families in turmoil, businesses closing their doors...honestly I could keep going but I think I have made my point. It has just gotten to me.

The bad thing is I don't even really know how to pray about all of this because it is just too overwhelming. Well, tonight I heard the lyrics to Nicole Nordeman's song I Am and God just spoke to my heart. No matter what is going on in our worlds God is the great I AM! He always has been and He always will be.

God is greater than this world!

Hallelujah! Praise His Holy Name!

So, I want to tell you today that no matter what is pressing in on you, if you are a child of God's, you have the great I Am on your side. There is nothing that you will face, not today, not tomorrow and not next week that will change this. And do you know what else, He is everything you need Him to be...Encourager, Healer, Comforter, Friend, Dream Keeper, Strong Tower, Faithful Friend, Provider, Daddy, Creator, Peace, Hope, Strength...

Dear One, He tells us in His Word that in our weakness His strength is made perfect. If you are feeling weak and frail today, know that you can rely on the power and strength of Jesus Christ.

Below are the lyrics to I Am. I hope they will speak to your heart like they have to mine.

I Am
Pencil marks on a wall
I wasn't always this tall,
You scattered some monsters from beneath my bed,
You watched my team win, You watched my team lose,
You watched when my bicycle went down again,
And when I was weak unable to speak,
Still I could call You by name,
And I said “Elbow healer, Superhero,come if You can,”
And You said “I am”

Only 16, life is so mean, what kind of curfew is at ten PM
You saw my mistakes, You watched my heart break
Heard when I swore I’d never love again
When I was weak, unable to speak,
Still I could call You by name,
And I said “Heart-ache Healer, Secret-keeper,be my Best Friend”
and You said “I am”

You saw me wear white, by pale candlelight,
I said forever to what lies ahead
Two kids and a dream, with kids that can scream
Too much it might seem when it’s two AM
When I am weak, unable to speak,
Still I will call You by name.
"Oh Shepherd, Savior, Pasture-maker,hold onto my hand,"
and You say “I am.”
The winds of change, and circumstance blow in and all around us
So we find a foothold that’s familiar,
And bless the moments that we feel You nearer
Life had begun, I was woven and spun,
You let the angels dance around the throne,
Who can say when, But they’ll dance again,
When I am free and finally headed home

I will be weak, unable to speak,
still I will call You by name
"Creator, Maker, Life-sustainer,Comforter, Healer,
My Redeemer,Lord and King, Beginning and the End"
"I Am, Yes, I Am.”
