I have noticed many people put “I am” in front of a name for their social media usernames. Those words possess certainty of identity. It proclaims I am who I say I am. It’s important to know who we are so we can celebrate our accomplishments, discover ways to improve, and abolish insecurities. As I was drawing today’s doodle, my daughter said in a mimicking voice, “I am. I am Shannon Childs and I like to create things”. I couldn’t help but laugh because she thinks she’s a comedian, and summed up the meaning of this post by describing a part of who I am. I am…many wonderful things! Who are you?
On another note, these words also define who God is. When he appeared to Moses, in the burning bush, God told Moses to tell the Israelites his name is I AM (Exodus 3:14). He has many names. He is everything, the alpha and the omega. I AM…is mighty! Who is God to you?
