Who Do You Say HE Is?
By Karla Maxwell
Jesus has multiple names in the Bible-- Messiah, Redeemer, Lion of Judah, Immanuel with numerous others, but perhaps the greatest and most mysterious of all the names for our Lord Jesus Christ is I AM. When He called himself I AM, He made specific revelations regarding His identity and nature. He said, "I am the Bread of Life" (John 6:35), "I am the Light of the world" (John 8:12), "I am the Door" (John 10:9), "I am the Good Shepherd" (John 10:11), "I am the Resurrection and the Life" (John 11:25), "I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life" (John 14:6), "I am the true Vine" (John 15:1).
 
What connotations come to mind when you read or hear these phrases after I Am? Perhaps peace, comfort, a safe place? What comes to mind when you hear phrases such as, "I am dumb", "I am worthless", "I am sick"? Doom and gloom, defeat, nothing good, I am sure.
 
There are no negative phrases spoken by Jesus when He uses His transparent and powerful name, I AM. Yet, how many times a day do we use "I am" phrases to describe our current situation or feelings? We are defeating ourselves when we use these negative terms, speaking lies from the enemy, and encouraging any disbelief in God's promises. When we use negative statements about ourselves, we are revealing our heart and mindset.
 
We are made in the image of the Great I AM, and we as followers of Christ have Holy Spirit dwelling within us. Have you ever stopped to think when we say "I am" statements that DO NOT line up with the Word of God, we are in a way, or perhaps, flat out cursing the name of the Lord, using His name in vain? OUCH!
 
I encourage you today to be mindful of your words. Stop before you speak and rephrase your words to line up with the Word of God. We all make mistakes that are dumb, but instead of saying, "I am dumb", say "I will get it right next time". Never say "I am sick," or "I have ____". Instead, speak the truth in that "by the blood of Jesus' stripes I am healed."
 
"I am the righteousness of God in Jesus Christ." What "I am" phrases that are pleasing to the Lord can you say about yourself? Share them with us by clicking the "Share" button below for email or click the Facebook icon to go to our Facebook page and tell us.

Wow! Our spring retreat, Pursuit 4.20: Dancing In the Rain, is just a few weeks away! Are you registered yet? If not, be like a bunny and hop to it! We cannot wait to see everyone as we take a weekend to hear from the Lord and worship Him with our sisters in Christ. If you have never attended a Promise Helpers retreat, we encourage you to join us. It is well worth the time and money. You can register now and pay upon arrival at the retreat. 

Pray for the retreat, the speakers, ladies attending, for lives to be changed, ask the angels to guard the gate and make the way straight for all who want to attend to do so. Pray for wisdom and Spirit-led guidance for the leaders. Pray retreat scholarships will be provided for anyone in need.
 
You can also be a blessing to ladies and Promise Helpers by providing scholarships or partial scholarships. We have many ladies in need of financial help; they are blessed by attending, and the giver is doubly blessed. The Lord has always made a way for every lady to attend, and you can be a part of His work by giving any amount you can to help Promise Helpers with these scholarships. If you would like to bless a lady with a scholarship donation or partial scholarship, click on the Scholarship button below. This will take you to Promise Helpers' PayPal. There is a drop-down menu, click "Retreats" and enter whatever amount you like.
 
Make this Promise Helpers retreat a priority in your life. The Lord never disappoints!

The Lord is moving and shaking at Promise Center in Clyde, TX! Just a small example, a mom and a grandmother came to the food bank last month, and then came back for prayer. The children are now involved in a local church on Wednesdays, and the mother has begun attending M.O.P.S. meetings (Moms of Preschoolers)!

It is also awesome that Promise Center's food bank isn't just canned and boxed items! Below is a picture to give you a glimpse of the food available at the Promise Center's food pantry. Thank you, Jesus!

6 Game-changing Refrigerator Organizing Hacks
from www.mommyoverwork.com

We all know that organizing helps defeat chaos, so here are some helpful organization hacks to create more storage space in your refrigerator.

  1. Binder Clips: For wire racks in fridges, clip binder clips to the wire racks to serve as bookends to hold water/soda bottles in place.
  2. Lazy Susan: Use Lazy Susans to store condiments and jars for easy access.
  3. Magazine Holder: Lay plexiglass magazine racks on their side and stack multiple holders to maximize vertical storage.
  4. Mini 3-Drawer Organizer: Put kids' snacks in their own bins!
  5. Eat Me First Box: Store food that needs to be eaten soon in the box so everyone knows it needs to go first.
  6. Wire Basket: Increase the height of your fridge's door shelves.

Promise Helpers is a non-profit Christian ministry for women that seeks to help women experience the fullness of God’s purpose and promises for them. Our desire is to bring women to a place of personal wholeness so they can bring wholeness to their marriages, homes, families and communities. Promise Helpers is women ministering to women, reminding one another of the promises of God and encouraging one another to implement those promises into their daily lives. The foundation of Promise Helpers is prayer, for apart from Jesus Christ we can do nothing.
