I AM

I am Rachelle Craig! I am married to an amazing man who loves God with all of his heart! I am a daughter to my earthly parents, (my beautiful momma is still walking this earth, but my daddy went to be with God when I was just 15.) But even more than that, I am a daughter to my Father in Heaven! I am a mom! I am a NaNa! I am a sister to 4 siblings, 3 of whom are still walking this earth, and 1 who is rejoicing in the arms of Jesus! I am also a sister in Christ to my church family, and to many beautiful women who God has blessed me with in online communities! I am a friend! I am a property manager by profession, and I am an employee to my boss! I am friendly, outgoing, energetic, organized, a tad bit OCD, (well maybe mediocre OCD), and I am able to love with my whole heart!

I am all of the things I mentioned above, but more than all of those things, I am so grateful that I am a daughter of God! Without Him, I would be none of the above, because without Him, I AM NOTHING! I have lived life on both sides of the fence, and I am so beyond thankful that He waited for me, and He pursued me, and He carried me, even when I didn't know He was with me! He is the Great I AM! 

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.'" - Exodus 3:14 (NIV)

You see, when we say something about ourselves beginning with I am, we must follow up with what we are. "I am a mom, I am a sister, I am a daughter of God, etc...." But God? God alone can say "I AM" without saying anything more, because God IS. 

The bottom line here is, I am so thankful that God gave me grace, He opened His arms and invited me into a beautiful relationship with Him. He loves me! No! Matter! What! And I am His daughter! He is the Great I AM! 


Linking up with Karen at Tuesday at Ten
