Many Names

Last night, I was pondering on what I am called in life. I am a wife. I am a mom. I am daughter/daughter-in-law. I am a granddaughter. I am a neice. I am a sister/sister-in- law. I am a cousin. I am a friend. I am a child of God. I have a lot of roles in life and am called many things. What I am called doesn't even compare to the many names that God has.



I have many names of God that are my favorite. Particularly, because at different times of my life that is what I looked to God to be. Right now, in a time that is uncertain for my family, I see God as the The Lord Will Provide. I say it is uncertain because my husband is finishing his time as a student teacher. He has applied to some schools already with big hopes that he gets a teaching job next year. I am believing that The Lord Will Provide. Another name of God that I cling to is I Am. He is God. He knows everything about the future and God wants me to relax and be still because He is God.

I don't know what your name is for God that you are clinging to, read through the names above and comment with the one that you cling to and see God as.

God is powerful and has many names. He is in control of everything. I am so thankful that I've been letting God be God because it has helped me to worry less and to trust Him so much more than I ever have.

As my family approaches these next few weeks to find out how God (The Lord Will Provide) will move in our lives, you can bet I will be waiting (hopefully patiently) with faith, hope, and a lot of love.

  1. Mine would be Jesus as Living Water. I heard a sermon a few weeks back that still resonates with me. The Bible has water all throughout it. Especially for the Israelites, after wandering in the desert for 40 years, would have been so thankful for the water of their new land.

  2. Be still and know that I am God is a meditation I learned more than 25 years ago. It still holds true.

  3. I don't know what my name is. I feel called to be the best wife and mother I can be. I also feel my calling is in education. This is a thought provoking post.

  6. There's such a sense of peace when we surrender and let God's will happen.

  7. Nails it - if anything, we are all called children of God, period - so no matter what the world calls us...
