The Great I Am

Updated on November 20, 2019

Politics aside, there is much more to me. I am passionate about many things and those are the things which sustain me.

Alpha and Omega - Great I AM

Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end,

My comforter and Savior, my Father and my friend

No other gods before me, no other way will do

The written word sustains me, my Faith sees me through

My refuge through sadness, through personal battles, through pain

To gain the riches of the world and not have faith, really isn't gain

~~~

Father God on high, the Great I AM, meeting lowly me, right where I stand

No other way, earthly things can't last, they fade away like sinking sand

It is where I choose, to place my trust

For all that is good and all that is just

Imperfect me, a work in progress, not any different than you

With the Lord as my Shepherd, I‘m just traveling through

Alpha and Omega; Father, Spirit, Son

God Almighty, THE GREAT I AM, hallelujah, the battle has already been won!







Exodus 3:14 KJV

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.

Source

Revelation 1:8 KJV

I AM Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.

        Oh, oops! "Same Kind of Different as Me". I've got a hub about the movie....the one about paying it forward, I think. But I only recently got a copy of the book. I was too excited because as I was posting to you, I was also thinking about asking for an interview with Ron Hall. And I did just that so we'll see!

        Perfect timing to see this hub come up in notifications! I just got through reading a book about a true story of God's work. Made me sad and joyful at the same time. Lot's of things to contemplate .

        St. Augustine is one of my favorite places. You'll have to try my favorite restaurant, Harry's. It is located in the old town, facing the water. So much to do there. Enjoy your trip!

        Good Morning Brenda,

        Thank you for stopping by and for your very kind words.

        I don't know how people without faith do it. How do they get through the day to day 'stuff' that we all go through?

        Good Morning Shannon! Yes, 'Amazing Grace', such a special song. A classic!

        'I Can Only Imagine' (I finally watched the movie) There's no telling how many people were inspired by this song, when it was being played all over and not just on Christian radio. That was such a God thing!

        'I Believe' by Brooks & Dunn and 'When I Get Where I'm Going' Dolly and Brad Paisley...I could go on and on.

        We need more of this type of inspirational music throughout this very secular world!

        Oh, you're welcome. Y'all were talking about goosebumps songs.....That one and I love certain versions of "Amazing Grace". "I Can Only Imagine" is another one, especially since I know the story behind the song now.

        Have y'all heard the new Dolly Parton song yet? She did a duet with For King and Country- a remake of one of their songs. She sang part of it at the CMAs. I've got the press release info about the song. I asked for an interview, but haven't heard back.

        Thank you Yves! I agree with you about 'How Great Thou Art', there are so many great renditions, this is one of the best. Definite goosebumps song!

        A lovely poem that speaks to what matters most, AB.... the Greatness of God! Maybe that is why my favorite hymn is "How Great Thou Art." That song stops me in my tracks every single time. It is the song that, as you say, "take me to church." Here is a powerful rendition, if you care to hear it. Not to mention, I happen to love Vince Gill even though he only plays a small part in the song.

        No doubt about him being where he is supposed to be.

        I can see why this song does that for you. Especially with this group singing. They always do such a nice job. And inspire beautiful poetry, too. ;)

        Oh my goodness, this is one of those goosebump songs for me Shannon. It takes me to church...as some say.

        Good for him, he is where he is supposed to be. I am sure he would agree. +

        I can't believe I have never heard that song before. Usually, I know the songs they sing.

        This is a little random, but a while back, I looked up what happened to James Bonamy and found out he is a worship leader at his church at a town here in Texas now. He just completely gave up the big time for that. I'm sure he's good at it, but I wonder how many young people know he used to be famous.
