I AM WHO I AM

This has been saved in my files for awhile, I loved it when I read it and kept a hold of it. I'm going through a serious valley right now, my mom is laying in a hospital bed after finding out 2 days ago she has a brain tumor. She's having surgery Tuesday to remove it. She forgets a lot of stuff, she's not herself. We're all scared out of our wits and I'm terrified yet am leaning on God to take away my fear. He has my mom in His hands, and I can rest knowing that. This I AM WHO I AM spoke loudly to me today as I wait to get down to my mom and see her on Sunday morning. Waiting is so hard, she is three hours away and I want to see her whether she is all "there" or not. I will keep reading this throughout my day and remember who is in control. Prayers for my mom, Betty, are very appreciated. Whatever YOU are going through today or any day, look to Jesus for strength, comfort and whatever you need from Him. He is here.

I AM WHO I AM

Exodus 3:14
And God said to Moses, “I am who I am.”

Whatever your challenge is today, whether it is physical, emotional, financial or marital, the great I Am declares to you: “I am to you what you need Me to be.”

Do you need healing? He says, “I am the Lord who heals you. (Ex. 15:26) And as you believe Me, you will see your healing manifest thirty-fold, sixty-fold and a hundred fold.”

Are you groping in the dark, not knowing what to do? He says, “I am the light of the world. (John 8:12) When you walk in Me, you will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”

Are you looking for a way out of a bad situation? He says, “I am your deliverer. I will reach down from on high, take hold of you and draw you out of the deep waters.” (Ps. 18:2,16)

Are you wondering if there is more to life than merely existing from day to day? He says, “I am the resurrection and the life. (John 11:25) I came to give you life. And where there is life, there cannot be death. You will have life and life more abundantly.” (John 10:10)

Are you fearful of what is ahead of you? He says, “I am the good shepherd (John 10:11), who leads you to pastures of tender, green grass and waters of rest. You will not suffer lack. (Ps 23:1-3)

Are you confused by the opinions and reports of man? He says, “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last. (Rev. 1:11) I have the final word in your life. The doctors do not have the final word. The experts do not have the final word. I have the first word and the last word in your situation.”

My friend, do not be fearful of the problems you face. The great I Am declares to you, “Fear not! For I am what you need Me to be.”

This is such a lovely,sweet and inspirational post about your mother. He is all we need everyday through everything that happens. I often wonder how much harder it must be for those who don't have him to lift them and bring them comfort. I am thankful that you know Him. Praying for Betty and all of your family as you walk through this valley. Blessings, dear girl.
