Part 2: Chapter 1 – Day 7: The Great I AM

Welcome to Day 7 of Part 2‘s Chapter 1 from Arise and Shine. Today, Anna is sharing a poem as a final free will offering of silver, together with a link to a Scriptural song she sung as a little girl that God continues to bring back to her to encourage her. We, Bettie and Anna, pray that these daily offerings of praise, declaring God’s redemptive power, have been an encouragement to your heart this past week. Even as we have been editing these offerings ourselves, to publish here, God has brought us deeper repentance, freedom and joy also.

The Great I AM

Turn not back in pain
But toward the I AM
He's watching over every step
Before, above, around
His everlasting arms beneath.

Turn not back in despair
But toward the I AM
He's redeeming every piece
Broken to whole at the Cross
His Word a lamp unto our feet.

Turn not back in fear
But toward the I AM
He's lifting every accusation
In the light of His truth
Leading us all to repentance.

Turn not back in shame
But toward the I AM
He's righting every wrong
In thought and deed and word
Wrapping His cloak around us.

For the Son of God came
Not to condemn but save
He's a well of living water
Springing up to eternal life
Come let us drink from -

The Great I AM.
