From the translator’s journal ~I Am~

I was given a prayer “I Am” by Helen Mallicoat (July 11, 2022):

  *****  *****


I was regretting the past
And fearing the future.
Suddenly my Lord was speaking:

“My name is I Am.” He paused.
I waited. He continued,
“When you live in the past
With its mistakes and regrets,
It is hard, I am not there,
My name is not I WAS.”

When you live in the future
With its problems and fears,
It is hard. I am not there.
My name is not I WILL BE.

When you lve in this moment,
It is not hard. I am here.
My Name is I AM.
