“I Am that I Am”, a common English translation of the response God used in the Hebrew Bible when Moses asked for His name
I am (biblical term), a Christian term used in the Bible
“Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was born, I Am.”

The Christmas season is finally over…. but what a sad time of year it truly was for me…
My finite joy is now gone… and my words of rejoice and praise… have been silenced!
For those I love the most…. And those I long to spend eternity with…
Yet they are still among us……
They are now gone to me…..
… I did not gaze upon their beautiful faces…or hear their tender words of love.
….BUT in His Mercy… He gave me a glimmer of hope…
A precious child….
The very same age as the very ones I longed for this past Christmas season…..
And another glimmer of hope… I did not deserve!!
An unsuspecting text I did Receive…….
A final Victory?……..
a Hard Fought Triumph?……
Just a glimmer of hope!!!
For there are no true and righteous wars fought here….
For You have already won the war!!!
Simple words !
Two words that mean such very much to me….
“All my devotion is like sinking sand. I’ve nothing to cling to but your sweet hand. I’ve no clear emotions keeping me safe at night: Only your presence, like a candle light. After everything I’ve had. After everything I’ve lost. Lord, I know this much is true, I’m still drawn to you. I pour out my sorrows just like a precious oil. I kiss your feet, Lord, with a holy joy. My tears an offering of my highest praise; Your eyes say ‘welcome.’ And I receive Your gaze. ‘Cause after everything I’ve had And after everything I’ve lost Lord, I know this much is true I’m still drawn to you After everything’s been said. After everything love cost. Lord, I know this much is true I’m still drawn to you. You know I am Lord, I know this much is true I’m still drawn to you.”
