I Am

And God said unto Moses, “I Am That I Am: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I Am hath sent me unto you.” — Exodus 3:14.

Yesterday at a program for put on by the children of Trinity Episcopal for grandparents the following chorus was sung:

“I am in the sun, I am in the shade; I am in the light that love has made

I am in the cold, I am in the warm; I am in the center of your storm

I am in the fire, I am in the flood; I am in the marrow and the blood

When you cannot stand I am.”

There are those and whole religions who believe that the “God I am” stands off and aloof, not to be bothered with the daily travails. I like the version described in the above lyrics. The I am who is in the sun and shade of our every day. One line from the song says what I choose to believe, “But don’t you know you’re not alone, you’re not alone.”
