I AM and a Give Away

Photo Copyright 2018 by R.A. Robbins

Before we met Bob wrote a poem called I AM.

A beautiful limited edition print of this poem was created with artwork by Margaret Nixon and Calligraphy by Jane Van Milligan.  It comes with the printed words with scripture reference on a separate page.

We are conducting a drawing to give a copy of this print to one of our readers.  Please enter the rafflecopter drawing by clicking here.  The drawing ends at 12: AM on June 30 and the winner will announced  on Monday July 2.  But first take a minute to read the words.

I AM

The one who was, and is, and is to come, I AM.  Alpha, the beginning, the creator, I AM.

I speak, and the earth is formed, and the light is there; the waters are divided from the dry land, and the light from the darkness.

Energy, time, light, darkness, all of these , I AM.

The father of man, of creatures, of life, I AM>.

I speak and grass, and herbs, and trees do grow; and animals, and birds, and insects and serpents do present themselves; even man.

Creation, life imaged, grantor of gifts, I AM.

The word, the spirit, the fact of all things, I AM.

I speak and the angels are; and authority is given; and Satan is given freedom, or bound; also testing allowed.

Strength, hope, happiness, the everlasting, I AM.

I AM Love, but was unloved, alone.

I AM needed my friends, my sons, my servants to love, to me love.

I AM offering perfect peace, trust, tranquility, and love.

I AM not selfish, and allow you another one to love.

I AM perfect, when he is punished so shall you be with your love.

I AM your Lord, your God, Christ;

I AM perfect Agape Love.

The one who was, and is, and is to come, I AM.  Omga, the conclusion, the justice, I AM.

I speak and my voice brings down tyrants, dictators, bad masters, demons and Satan, and those not rused in my son’s book of life.

Truth, understanding, logic, honesty, I AM.  Fit, undergirding,  and absolute fact, I AM.

I speak and the present heaven and earth disappear, and a new heaven and a new earth appear, and there to rule is my son.

Beauty, loveliness, true life conceptions, I AM.  Abraham’s , Jacob’s, and Moses’ God I AM.

I speak and the universe reacts as I think, all creation reacts as I think; but you I have freed to react.

Either love, hope, happiness and peace I AM.

Or hatred, confusion, sadness, and fear, he is.

The Story Behind “The World’s Gone Crazy”

The World’s Gone Crazy, But I’m Okay

All this month we are celebrating the Grand Opening of our Espirational Gallery.  I will be talking about my creative process for a few of my works throughout the month.  I decided to start with The World’s Gone Crazy, but I’m Okay.

The Story Behind The World’s Gone Crazy, But I’m Okay.

I consider all of my work spiritual even if it may not have an overtly spiritual theme.  But The World’s Gone Crazy is definitely and obviously spiritual.

While living in the city, before we moved to the lake I was world weary.   Waking up every morning to the news of more violence and death I was becoming overwhelmed and afraid.  I was saying “The Prayer for Protection a lot during those days and finally decided to try to put my feelings into art.

What I came up with was the world going crazy (the background is loosely a “crazy quilt”) while I was in the middle of it all surrounded by the White Light of God’s Presence knowing that

“The LIght of God Surrounds me.

The Love of God Enfolds me.

The Power of God Protects me.

The presence of God Watches Over me.

Wherever I am God is.”

— James Dillet Freeman
