A Journey of Faith

I AM there

Do you need ME? I AM there.

You cannot see Me, yet I AM the light you see by.

You cannot hear ME, yet I speak through your voice.

You cannot feel ME, yet I AM the power at work in your hands.

I AM at work, though you do not understand MY ways.

I AM at work, though you do not recognize MY works.

I AM not strange visions, I AM not mysteries.

Only in absolute stillness, beyond self,

can you know ME as I AM,

and then but as a feeling and a faith.

Yet I AM there. Yet I hear. Yet I answer.

When you need ME, I am there.

Even if you deny ME, I AM there,

Even when you feel most alone, I AM there,

Even in your fears, I AM there,

Even in your pain, I AM there.

I AM there when you pray and when you do not pray.

I AM in you, and you are in ME.

I AM the law on which the movement of the stars

and the growth of living cells are founded.

I AM the love that is the law's fulfilling.

I AM assurance. I AM peace. I AM openness.

I AM the law that you can live by.

I AM the love that you can cling to.

I AM your assurance. I AM your peace. I AM one with you.

Beloved, I AM there.
