If there is anyone in this world who enjoys being at home, it’s me … but my son is a close second. (If you look up “homebody” in the dictionary, you might even see our pictures.)

So when it came time for him to decide on a college, my husband and I were very surprised he chose a school away from home.

Of course, I had encouraged him to explore all options. Isn’t that what a good mama is supposed to do? But I didn’t actually think he would select one of those out-of-town schools.

The sufficient grace of I AM is received by faith. God, in taking the name I AM, is donating a blank check. Faith has but to fill whatever we want – just add the ciphers.

God said, “I AM,” and Christ added “the bread of life.” God said, “I AM,” and Christ added “the light of the world.” God said, “I AM,” and Christ added “the gate for the sheep.” God said, “I AM,” and Christ added “the way, and the truth, and the life.” God said, “I AM,”…
