I AM IS ABLE

Who is able to make sense out of your confusion


I AM


Who is able to quiet your soul when there seems to be no peace


I AM


Who is able to bring you out of a season of despair


I AM


Who is able to make order out of your chaos


I AM


Who is able to forgive you when you cant seem to forgive yourself


I AM


Who is able to make beauty rise up from the ashes of your past


I AM


Who is able to see your future even when you cant see past today


I AM


Who is able to love you completely when no one else would dare to try


I AM


Who is able to understand you when you don't even understand yourself


I AM



Who is able to redeem your past, your time, and your soul



I AM

Who is able to bring justice out of a life that is unfair

I AM

Who is able to turn deep grief into overwhelming praise

I AM

Who is able to make you smile when your circumstances warrant tears

I AM

Who is able to give you words when no words will come

I AM

Who is able to pick you up when the world knocks you down

I AM



I AM is MORE than able.



John 8:58
"I tell you the truth," Jesus answered, "before Abraham was born, I am!"

Exodus 3:14
God said to Moses, "I am who I am . This is what you are to say to the Israelites: 'I AM has sent me to you.'

Ephesians 3:20
Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,
Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.

Reminds me of the songs we sang when I was younger..."He's Able, He's Able, I know He's Able, I know my Lord is able to carry me through".....

This was quite simply a beautiful post.

I need this reminder today as I work on my book. Even when I feel unable, all I have to do is look to "I am" who is more than able.

Thank you...

Did you see Mike Mickey's post on boycotting McDonald's because of their corporate stance on gay rights?

He has an online petition if you want to sign it. Go to Rapturealert.com.

It has been awhile since I've been to your blog, but thanks for the message. When life becomes harder then we think we can handle, it's easy to forget that He has a plan for all of us. We just have to be patient and trust our Father in Heaven :)
