Mindful Minute: The Great I Am

Often in history people’s names were used to describe their character or even their profession. Even today we sometimes receive nicknames or superlatives; however, these names do not define us.

When people think of God, and who his is they often try to put God in a box that define him.

Some place God in a box defining Him as the Creator who has created the world and now sits back on His thrown watching. There are others who define Him as a God who “grants wishes”. And still others define God and angry and vengeful, who is waiting for an opportunity for punishment.

The problem with this thinking is that it limits God. These boxes are definitions that we have come up with to define God. They don’t come close to describing Gods true character.

So, who is God really?

God described himself as self-sufficient, self-sustaining and powerful over all things. God who was, who is, and who will be. He. Is. infinite!

In Exodus 3:13-14 God said to Moses, “I am who I am. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: ‘I am has sent me to you.’”

HE is the GREAT I AM…


God is in control of everything and is sovereign over everything. He Is Who He Is.

Mindful Minute: Patience

We all have situations that try our patients daily, the kids fighting and climbing the walls, being stuck on hold with customer service, painfully slow internet. When times are tough it is even harder to preserver with a good attitude. We can turn to the “Good Book” when we need help getting our minds right.

Mindful Minute: Treasures

Our treasures and priorities can easily be misplaced and we can find ourselves devoting our time, finances, phone calls and acts of service into treasures that do not last. Matthew 6:19 says, “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal.”

Mindful Minute: Kindness

For centuries, people have knows about the power of kindness. Not only does kindness help others around you, it also has a positive impact in your life. Doing good has been scientifically proven to do great things for your health too. Performing intentional acts of kindness expands your ability to love others. If you need extra encouragement to keep kind, the bible is an excellent source.

Mindful Minute: Two Sides To Every Coin

Sometimes in life, negative thoughts can control how we feel. They often cause our emotions to spin out of control; dictating how we react to situations. Dwelling on the negative will breed frustration and discontentment. But just like a coin there is another side; dwelling on the positive will breed joy and contentment.
