I AM

This song, by Nichole Nordeman, gets to me in a place so deep that I wanna cry everytime I hear it. If you download music, download this song. It's a peaceful, soothing, gentle song that calms me when I am in a frenzy. This is such a crystal clear picture of who God is:

Pencil marks on a wall
I wasn't always this tall,
You scattered some monsters from beneath my bed,
You watched my team win, You watched my team lose,
You watched when my bicycle went down again,

And When I was weak
unable to speak,
still I could call You by name,
and I said “Elbow healer, Superhero, come if You can,”
and You said “I am”

Only 16,
life is so mean,
what kind of curfew is at ten pm?
You saw my mistakes,
You watched my heart break
Heard when I swore I’d never love again

When I was weak,
unable to speak,
still I could call You by name,
and I said “Heart-ache Healer, Secret-keeper,be my Best Friend”
and You said “I am”

You saw me wear white,
by pale candlelight,
I said forever to what lies ahead
two kids and a dream,
with kids that can scream
too much it might seem when it’s two am
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.”

The winds of change, And circumstance blow in
and all around us
so we find a foothold that’s familiar,
And bless the moments that we feel You nearer

Life had begun,
I was woven and spun,
You let the angels dance around the throne,
who can say when,
But they’ll dance again,
when I am free and finally headed home

I will be weak, unable to speak,
still I will call You by name
“Creator, Maker, Life-sustainer,
Comforter, Healer, My Redeemer,
Lord and King, Beginning and the End,
I am,
yes, I am.”
