I’m joining with others at Five Minute Friday today and the word is…

At our home, we are still playing the waiting game. I want to put a name on the next job for my husband, and a name on the town we will be moving to, yet we still wait.

There is no sense in asking why, when or where if the time is not right.

Yesterday I read some words that we often don’t read unless we are in the Christmas season.

       “The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him

              Immanuel which means “God with us.” Matthew 1:23

As I went about my day I focused on this name of God and it gave me encouragement. It kept my mind off the (seemingly) giant problems in our lives at the moment. Then I began to think on other names of God that I might focus on.

There are times when I think God doesn’t see me, that I am unimportant, but it’s not true…God sees me. There is a name for that: El Roi.

Just as Adam gave names to all of God’s creation, the people of God had names for him. Here are a few more:

  • Abba (Papa)
  • Adonai (LORD)
  • Alpha and Omega (beginning and the end)
  • Elohim (Creator)
  • El-Shaddai (God Almighty)
  • I AM (He just IS)
  • Yahweh (Self Existent One)

If you don’t think God sees you and you need to be reminded of who he is, and how he cares for you, take some time and study the names of God and be lifted up.

  1. For me this is a waiting game,
    but I don’t know what’s next.
    Does the Lord recall my name,
    or am I deleted text?
    I can’t go on, I bloody CAN’T
    without some word from Him.
    Does He even hear my rant?
    My odds are looking slim.
    I see new tumours in the mirror,
    then hear a still, small voice.
    “Yes, your fate is getting clearer
    but you still reserve a choice.
    Die for Me, see this through,
    ’cause dude, did I not die for you?”
