“I was regretting the past and fearing the future. Suddenly God was speaking. “My name is I Am.” I waited. God continued. “When you live in the past, with its mistakes and regrets, it is hard. I am not there. My name is not “I was.”
“When you live in the future, with its problems and fears, it is hard. I am not there. My name is not “I will be.” When you live this moment, it is not hard. I am here. My name is “I AM.”
Jeff Maziarek, author of Spirituality Simplified and Codi’s Journey, launched Pondercentral.com in April 2007 as a Web-based forum for “PONDER on THIS,” a series of weekday inspirational email messages he began sending to subscribers in March 1999. A FREE service since its inception, “PONDER on THIS” provides subscribers with meaningful content to assist them on their individual paths of spiritual growth. In addition, it benefits subscribers, authors, and publishers by including links to Amazon.com where subscribers can learn more about the book being quoted, and also purchase it.
