You Said "I AM"

Earlier in the year I has prayed "Lord, break me." (Because I know that in a state of brokenness, I am made whole again in Him and I longed for His discipline and mending.) But I did it not knowing exactly what I was praying for. He answered my prayer anyway. He tore my world completely apart and took my mom home during the summer. I was (and am) more heart broken than I ever have been in my LIFE, but I wouldn't take back my prayer for anything. Yea, I miss my mom terribly, but Jesus made me a promise that "anyone who knows me, though he dies, yet he shall live." There will be times in our life that we may feel almost completely crushed, but the Lord has His hand there holding the stone from destroying us. I wouldn't trade this brokenness for comfort. Not now, not ever. He knows what is best and the best thing I know is Him. :)

Lyrics to a song I LOVE right now.

"When I am weak, unable to speak,
still I will call You by name.
'Oh Shepherd, Savior, Pasture-maker,
hold on to my hand,' and You say 'I am.'”

I love it. When we are weak and unable to speak, we can call Him by name. He is Jesus, Savior, Comforter, Healer, Prince of Peace, Superhero, Heartache Healer, Secret keeper, Life Sustainer, Beloved, Abba Father... He is infinite!
