I was regretting the past and fearing the future.
Suddenly, I heard God 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 for you because I am not there. My name is not 'I WAS.'
"When you live in the future with its unknowns and fears, it is hard for you because I am not there. My name is not 'I WILL BE.'
"But when you live in this moment, it is not hard, because I am here. My name is '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.'"
