During our move this weekend, I unearthed this awesome find! Meg got this for my birthday a couple years back and it has been a great resource over the years. (Meg always knocks it out of the park with Birthday gifts) As I was flipping through the pages, I found this entry that I would like to share with you today because of it’s relevance to the Name of the God for Today theme
Prayer of Names:
if I call you Father,
will you please watch over me and those in my house,
and guard us lie a watchmen at night?
if I call you Mother,
may I curl up next to you when I have nightmares,
and will you you soothe me when i am sick?
if I call you Lover,
will you keep me company through thick and thin,
and encourage me to my best self?
if I confess that you are beyond naming,
will you please be greater than me and beyond my understanding,
so that the things I cannot fathom but so desperately want-
lion-and -lamb peace,
feeding miracles by the millions,
can be conceived and built by your imagination?
Will you please be holy so that I can be human,
to the best of my ability
The Wonderful Counselor will uphold you.
Read Isaiah 9:6
What name of God- from this passage or from you journey of faith- resonates deeply with your spirit?
Take time today to read and reflect on this scripture as well as journal those thoughts in the form of a prayer to the Lord.
And the effect of righteousness will be peace,and the result of righteousness, quietness and trust forever
