LIVE: Restore by the Spirit — Proclaim I AM!

LIVE! … By the Spirit™ with Kathleen E. Walls

Proclaim I AM!

During a powerful piece of spoken word, the performer Proclaimed “I Am_______, You Are_______, We Are_______”.  She then filled in the blank with words such as Brilliant, Splendid, Beautiful, etc.  During her performance, she wasn’t just proclaiming excellence over her life but also joining with each person as well as proclaiming it over the lives of others.  See once we remember who we are, we want others to remember who they are.  It is God within us seeking to awaken God within others.

We easily arise from our slumber by simply Proclaiming I Am!

As the spoken word artist shared this message, I was reminded of James Twyman’s book The Moses Code.  In The Moses Code, Twyman reminds us, just as the performer did, that we must be mindful of how we end the statement “I Am _______.”

In Exodus 3:14, God tells Moses “I Am Who I Am”.  Thus, when we speak the words “I Am”, we are calling on God within …we remember the oneness, we remember the union with God, and in that moment we are able to Proclaim I Am!  The words that follow this statement will determine our reality.

They tell the world how we see ourselves and how we want others to see us. Therefore, it is imperative that we pay attention to how we finish that proclamation.

I heard someone talk about the concept of praying unceasingly. As I heard it, I thought, “How do people really do that?  How do people spend all day everyday in prayer?”  I have an active prayer life and communicate with God throughout the day but I would say that I cease praying from time to time.

Just as I finished the thought, the answer came.  The person said, “All of our thoughts are prayers so be careful to monitor your thoughts and make sure that you are thinking about positive things, about what you want, etc.”  Wow!  All of our thoughts are prayers…don’t we have over 60,000 thoughts a day!

What am I spending my time praying (thinking) about when I’m not “praying formally”?  If I wasn’t motivated before to monitor my thoughts, and quickly and actively change the thoughts I don’t want…I Am now!

So as you continue to be Restored By The Spirit, I encourage you to:

  1. Monitor and actively participate and guide your prayers (words and thoughts)
  2. Think about who you are, what you want and what you deserve. Remember if your thoughts are your prayers, and what you think and speak becomes your reality, be mindful of what are you praying for.
  3. Lastly, take the advice of the spoken word artist and “change your first name to ‘I Am’ and your last name to_______!”  Fill in the blank with affirming and powerful words that represent your oneness with God.

God Bless and continue to Live By The Spirit…and Proclaim, I Am Restored!
