I AM

I love this song. I want to post the lyrics every time I'm listening to it in my car. I'm about to get ready to go to a funeral today and so I don't have a lot of time. But this song came to my mind and I wanted to post it. I think these lyrics put all of life into its proper perspective.

I have a friend who is trying to witness to someone close to her. She is burdened and feeling the weight of her responsibility in this person's life. I wasn't sure why this song came to my mind this morning, but after I posted it, I thought about her. I think this song is the answer to all of the situations where we feel inadequate and doubtful.

We are all facing things every day that look big to us. But we need only to remember that all of our challenges are small to God. Our role in everything is to do whatever He asks of us and then trust Him for the outcome.

"I Am" (Ginny Owens)

No Lord, he said, you've got the wrong guy.
Simple conversation gets me tongue-tied.
And you're telling me to speak with a maniac king.
Could it be I've lost my mind?
And besides, I am weak, don't you want someone strong,
To lead them out of Egypt when they've been there so long?
And anyway, they won't believe You ever spoke to me.
That's not your problem, God replied.
And the rest is history.

There's a bigger picture you can't see.
You don't have to change the world, just trust in me.
'Cause I am your creator, I am working out my plan,
And through you I will show them, I Am.

Now Lord, are you sure?
He's just a shepherd boy,
Too small for battle gear with a giant to destroy.
What on earth can he do with five stones and a sling?
That's not your problem, God replied.
'Cause I can do anything.

There's a bigger picture you can't see.
You don't have to change the world, just trust in me.
'Cause I am your creator, I am working out my plan,
And through you, I will show them,
I Am the first, I Am the last,
I Am the present and the past,
I Am tomorrow and today,
I Am the only way.

Great Lord, she said, I'm just a simple girl.
You say that I will bring your son into the world.
How can I understand this thing You're gonna do?
That's not your problem, God replied.
'Cause, there's a bigger picture,
And you don't have to change the world.
I am your creator, I am working out my plan.
And through you, I will show them,

There's a bigger picture, you can't see.
You don't have to change the world, just trust in me.
I am your creator, I am working out my plan,
And through you, I will show them,
I Am.

Thanks for sharing. I love those lyrics. I'm going back to Nebraska to visit for a couple of days and I've been praying about what I need to say about salvation to some family members. This will be a great inspiration. We've also been talking about how we live out our faith, what God has called us to do, in respect to the political discussions. I've been reading this book called "Halftime" by Bob Buford and I guess he put it best as "what will I do about what I believe". So,I enter another season of spiritual growing and challenges!
