It’s hard to believe that it’s been over six months since I’ve had a second to scribe the moments I never want to forget, and this morning a friend called asking, “Gina, are you okay? I used to follow your whereabouts through your Appointments with God, but became concerned when you disappeared. I actually thought you may have died or something!”


“Well, yes. I’ve known you for decades and you’ve always had an appointment to share and when silence filled my in box I realized I had to make sure that you were okay.”

We laughed and then she asked, “No, really. How are you?”

I am fine!” I replied, but in the midst of answering her question I smiled because 10 minutes before she called I ran into my office to grab my purse off my desk and when I did I knocked my Bible off, and as I was picking it up it opened to Exodus 3:14, and I read: 14 God replied to Moses, “I Am Who I Am. Say this to the people of Israel: I Am has sent me to you.”

My friend and I talked a bit longer and when she was assured that I was fine she said, “Well, I can’t wait to read your next Appointment with God. I’m sure that it’s going to be an interesting one. At least, if nothing else… I will know you are alive!”

We laughed, said our goodbyes and off I left to run my errands, but as I was driving I couldn’t help but wonder if God didn’t open the Bible deliberately to Exodus 3:14,  and if God didn’t have my friend call to ask if I was okay, because I answered her the same way God answered Moses when I said… “I am fine!” 

Then I started thinking about the many questions that people ask God, and I realized that within the words, “I AM”  He is giving a simple answer to the truth of who He really is, and He did so, so that everyone could understand the simplicity of “I AM!” 

Questions people ask God… 

Question: “God are you real?”
God’s answer: “I AM!”

Question: “God are you with me?”
God’s answer: “I AM!”

Question: “Who is going to help me pay my bills?”
God’s answer: “I AM!”

Question: “Who is going to help feed my family?”
God’s answer: “I AM!”

Question: “Who is going to help me find a job?”
God’s answer: “I AM!”

Question: “Who is going to be with me when I’m ill?”
God’s answer: “I AM!”

Question: “Who is going to watch over my children when I can’t?”  

God’s answer: “I AM!” 

The list of questions goes on and on, but in the midst  of “I AM!” I realized that God used my friend today to show me why I haven’t had any time to scribe the moments that I never wanted to forget, and that was because I had become, “I AM!”

My list had gone from being a “TO DO” list to a “I AM” list, and within my head it went something like this…  

I AM going to accomplish this today, and when I AM done, I will make an appointment with God and I AM going to scribe what I want to remember! Or… I AM going to figure out how to get out of debt today and when I figure it out I will then write my appointment with God. It seems that for the past six months I became “I AM!” and when that happened, it seems that I had no time to remember all that I never wanted to forget.

I do now believe that God showed me who He is and who I am, and it’s by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace to me was not without effect. 1 Corinthians 15:10

Onward to remembering… “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.” John 15:5
