He is, He was, He shall be

After my last post a couple Sundays ago, I heard God answer my heart and the emptiness I was feeling. I had to chuckle as my answer didn’t come in a dramatic way. Instead, my answer came from a song being played on our Christian radio station. The Christian musician, David Crowder, was discussing his new song I Am. Crowder explained that the song was from us to God and from God to us at the same time. I smiled and saw how that was exactly the way my heart needed help. The chorus of the song says, “I am, holding on to you, I am, holding on to you, in the middle of the storm I am holding to you.”

I love how the words “I am” can be spoken as if it is me, a finite human being, or as “I AM” referring to the name God gave to Moses in Exodus 3:13-14. I have found my life-line in Scriptures and in a few devotionals by Beth Moore. I am finding my footing again after feeling like a rudderless boat tossed in a rough sea. I AM continues to be faithful to me– He is, He was, and He always will be. And I am grateful.


IAM by David Crowder

There’s no space that His love can’t reach
There’s no place that we can’t find peace
There’s no end to Amazing Grace
Take me in with your arms spread wide
Take me in like an orphan child
Never let go, never leave my side.

I am,
Holding on to You.
I am,
Holding on to You.
In the middle of the storm,
I am Holding on,
I am!

Love like this, Oh my God to find!
I am overwhelmed what a joy divine!
Love like this sets our hearts on fire!

Chorus 2x

This is my Resurrection Song
This is my Hallelujah Come
This is why to You I run
This is my Resurrection Song
This is my Hallelujah Come
This is why to You I run
There’s no space that His love can’t reach
There’s no place that we can’t find peace
There’s no end to Amazing Grace

Chorus: 2X

Amen.
