This is a poem God gave me to write during the ladies’ conference at our church last weekend.


I Am the God of Abraham
Of Isaac, Jacob, too.
And if you let me in your heart
And be the God of you,
You’ll see I am the God of those
Who live, not of the dead.
I’ll give you life, and water and
My own life-giving bread.
I Am the God of all who live,
So if you want to live
Make Me your God and take the gifts
I truly want to give.
I wait for you to simply ask
And follow in My ways.
Then I’ll give you abundant life
To fill your empty days.

Feel free to print, share or repost anything on this blog. I do ask that you let me know if you use one of my poems on your blog or at your church somehow. It might give me an idea of better ways to spread His words, which I am always looking to do. And of course, always keep the copyright symbol and my name with the poem so I continue to have the right to use them. You may not realize that if something is posted enough times without the copyright notice, I could lose the copyright and then someone else could conceivably file for a copyright and I would no longer be able to use my own poems! It has happened, so please make sure the (c) is always on the poem whenever you repost. Thanks!

God bless,

      That reminds me of a song I have with a line that says, “He’s not the God Who one-time did; He’s the God Who does. That’s why they call Him the Great I AM, not the Great I Was.” I just love that line!

      This poem came from where Moses was called at the burning bush and God tells him He is I AM. And I thought about in the Gospels where Jesus points out the resurrection is shown when God says He is the God of Abraham, of Isaac, of Jacob and Jesus says He is the God of the living, not the dead, so that proves the resurrection. (They live or will live again.) From there, I thought that if He is our God, it proves we live, too. We live only in Him. He has brought the dead to life.

      He said it much better in the above poem He gave me than I am doing stumbling down here. He always does it best! He’s the Great I AM!
