Sermon Illustrations > God > I AM

Helen Mallicoat, quoted in Holy Sweat, Tim Hansel, 1987, Word Books Publisher, p. 136

I was regretting the pastAnd 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,With 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 problems and fears,it is hard. I am not there.My name is not I will be.

"When you live in this moment,It is not hard.I am here.My name is I am."
