When Moses was getting ready to come down out of the mountain and return to the people with the 10 Commandments, he asked GOD……..who shall I say sent me?
I Am that I Am (אֶהְיֶה אֲשֶׁר אֶהְיֶה, ʾehyeh ʾašer ʾehyeh[ʔehˈje ʔaˈʃer ʔehˈje]) is a common English translation (JPS among others) of the response God used in the Hebrew Bible whenMoses asked for his name (Exodus 3:14). It is one of the most famous verses in the Torah. Hayah means “existed” or “was” in Hebrew; “ehyeh” is the first person singular imperfect form and is usually translated in English Bibles as “I will be” (or “I shall be”), for example, at Exodus 3:12. Ehyeh asher ehyeh literally translates as “I Will Be What I Will Be”, with attendant theological and mystical implications in Jewish tradition. However, in most English Bibles, this phrase is rendered as I am that I am.”
God in this simple phrase, declares his HOLINESS. I am now, I have always been and I will always be. WOW! What a statement! It summarily states God’s Omnipresent nature. It speaks of endless and unlimited potential. When I stop to think about this, it blows my mind. Bottom line, God exists OUTSIDE of time. All of human history is before God at all times. There is no past, no future…………….all is PRESENT to GOD.
While going through treatment for cancer, I began to do what I called affirmations. Basically I spoke things that I desired as if they already existed. All of these statement began with I AM. I must have said, I am HEALTHY over a million times. I was making statements outside of my present human experience. I believe that in doing this I asked the divine to make them a reality in my present life…………..spoken in faith.
Doing this practice has made all of the difference in my personal life. It has healed me on every possible level and made me whole. I am continuing to do this now to continue to call into existence, my best LIFE. A life full of contentment, blessing and strength. I AM BLESSED!! I AM HAPPY!! I AM DEEPLY CONTENT! I AM SUCCESSFUL…………..AMEN!!!

There is no growth without change, no change without fear or loss, and no loss without pain. But remember this, God is never in a hurry, but he is always on time. And think about how far you’ve come, not just how far you have to go. You may not be where you want to be, but neither are you where you used to be.
But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. Matthew 6:20
What do you spend the majority of your time on? Work? Recreation? the computer?
How much of your time is spent helping OTHERS? What is your focus? If you are frustrated and disappointed, it is because you are focused on the wrong things. You life is focused on yourself and stuff, NOT how you can bless others. When you focus on others without any expectation other than to truly help and bless……..how gratifying! I am learning how to leave everyone I meet with the impression of increase. What is that? When people leave you, they should feel better, lighter, happier, more clear or edified from spending time in your presence. That especially includes those closest to you…….yes, especially at home. Many folks have a public face and a private face. Living as an integrated and genuinely happy soul is certainly a goal worth attaining.
The great thing about all of this is, as the scripture says above. No one can take any of this treasure from you. It is yours forever and is worth much more than Gold or $$$.
Compassion also brings us into the territory of mystery — encouraging us not just to see beauty, but perhaps also to look for the face of God in the moment of suffering, in the face of a stranger, in the face of the vibrant religious other.” (Krista Tippett)
He will decide if thousands of Florida women will be told “no” when they go for their next mammogram. For the first time ever, the Florida Legislature approved lifesaving funding for our state’s breast cancer screening program. But, Governor Scott could use his power to veto that funding.
The impact could be devastating. We know that mammograms save lives. And we know that without this funding, many Florida women won’t be able to afford one.
Ask him to approve the state funding currently in the budget for the Mary Brogan Program to ensure that more women have access to breast cancer screening.
Right now, Florida is one of only seven states that provides no state funding for a screening program that is proven to save lives by detecting breast cancer at its earlier and most treatable stages. In just two minutes, you can help change this.
