“Will I—could I—be willing to stop playing my faith so safe, asking only for what seems possible, and exchange that for a faith that is willing to risk everything on the name of Jesus?”
Discovering the “I Am” statements of Jesus tucked in John’s Gospel, caused my wobbly knees to strengthen.
My light bulb moment dawned as I began to recognize and embrace the fullness of the Provider instead of being stuck concentrating on the provision.
Seven times Jesus says “I Am…” bringing a depth of strength and confidence for anyone willing to dig into the Scriptures.
Join with me as we explore how the early church grasped the I Am’s of Jesus resulting in people who…
It became crystal clear to me why I wasn’t thriving, instead of recognizing and embracing the fullness of the provider I was stuck concentrating on the provision.
My discovery of how to thrive in life began with the knowledge of who Jesus said he is and YOU my friend can thrive as well!
The break through comes from realizing the difference in coming to God to have your needs met and coming to Him because He is all you need.

I was stunned to see how much of God’s entire message to man is covered in these 7 “I AM”” statements. For me, it is not a “quick or one-time read,” because it takes a while to spiritually absorb the teaching the Lord does in your heart… I have stars and checks and underlines all through my copy!!! ~ Tom Bandy
“Seriously, God? I’m doing everything I know to do and it’s not working.” Like author Jenny Smith, I’ve said those same words, and couldn’t understand why He didn’t hear me. Didn’t He care what I was going through? If I’d had this book when I was going through my own time of desperation, I might have more quickly recognized and accepted His work in my own life.
With teaching from Jesus’ I Am proclamations to a look at the struggles of New Testament life, Seriously God can be used as a Bible study, a group discussion book, and a personal journal. Embracing its truths will take the reader from a point of desperation to a point of peace, found only through a deeper understanding of who Jesus really is. ~Vonda Skelton
In Jenny’s book, she asks very thought-provoking questions while also providing historical context when using scriptures, which is a delight to my soul. Not only is it enough to read the Word of God but to truly understand the message, it is necessary to have some background information. On several occasions, Jenny provided enough context about a passage of scripture until it caused me to question my interpretation and to grow into a new level of understanding. ~ Kristian’s Mom
