Lyrics: 1. I began a journey of becoming long before my birth.
I developed skills and talents to pursue while on this earth.
Each day I can improve upon the lessons of the past,
And then take the counsel given me to heart and make it last.
"Be" patient on this quest; for the journey of becoming is a process.
"Be" faithful! Seek and live His word. You're on the journey of the Lord.
2. I reflect upon my Savior's life, who calls Himself "I Am."
How He said, "Come follow me" just like a Shepherd to a lamb.
So meekly I will follow Him and say what He would say,
'Til the journey of becoming takes me home to Him someday!
"I am" patient on this quest; for the journey of becoming is a process.
"I am" faithful! Seek and live His word. I'm on the journey of the Lord.
Yes, He said, "Come follow me" and "the truth will set you free."
This journey of becoming me!
More about Debbie Wood:
How I love my mother, Brenda; my very first teacher in life. When I was eight, I had a desire to learn to play the piano and she began teaching me about the different notes. Then in Jr. High, my music teacher, Marvin Hill, understood the power of chords, and in one month, changed my life. Over the years, I've written different songs, both upon request, and to express the emotion I was feeling at the time. Each of these songs has a story of how it was written. (Which can also be found at www.power-plus-learning.com/debbs-music/) Each of these songs I dedicate to our loving Father in Heaven and Savior, Jesus Christ. I know They live. I know They love us perfectly and give us gifts and talents to share with others and make this world a better place. How grateful I am to Them for all I've been blessed with.
I've been curious why the Savior would refer to Himself as the Great "I Am." I'm not sure if I know what that means. But one day, as I was reflecting on our journey of becoming like Him, I realized that when we conjugate the verb "to be" it changes to I AM, he/she/it IS, we and they ARE.
I found it fascinating that the command to "be" something would result in the answer of "I am" or "I am not." For example: "Be patient" would change to 'I am patient" or "I am not patient."
Without making this too confusing, I tried to write this song about the journey of "be"coming; how in the process to become like our Savior we, too, conjugate the verb from "be" to "I am" - so we really are becoming like Him.
