Who Is God?
 
I was regretting the past
and fearing the future.
 
Suddenly my Lord was speaking:
 
My Name Is I AM
 
He paused.
 
I waited.
 
He continued:
 
"When you live in the past
and its mistakes and regrets,
it is hard.
I am not there. My name is not  I WAS.
 
 
When you live in the future,
with its fears and problems
it is hard.
I am not there.
My name is not I WILL BE.
 
When you live in the  moment
It is not so hard.
I am here.
My name is I AM.

  1. What a great poem! And perfect reminder to live with Him in the here and now. Not in the past or the future. Thanks for sharing this Ellen!
