Recently one of our members wrote these beautiful words:
It is all in a name.
The answer to our seeking and being sought.
The end of all our seeking and spiritual practice is in a name.
" I am."
" I am " the life before all life that you came from,
and the journey of prayer—calling you to return to your source of being.
When Moses asked God for His name, the answer came back plainly, "I am."
The "I am" is the one answer, the only answer to today's problems. And, to be frank, He simply just is. The "I am that I am" is the answer to war, grieve, sorrow, doubt, and the source of all happiness.
I invite you this Holy Week to seek the "I am."
The "I am" loved us so much that He became one of us. The Alpha and The Omega, the beginning and the end, the one who is before all and by whom all exists...Jesus Christ came to meet mankind, live with us, and then die for us.
Let this Holy Week not be so much about negativity or sorrow or death, but more of grace and mercy. Because despite the evils, regardless of the circumstances that surround you, the one that overcame the world is beside you right now. You are not alone. The King of Kings and Lord of Lords is there right now...for you...Jesus loves you so very much.
And why do you ask? How can God love me?
He just does... I am that I am...
