Knowing God by Name {Bible Study}

Knowing God by Name

Today marked the beginning of the second week of the “Knowing God by Name” bible study and I have to say, this has truly been an awe inspiring study. In the first week, we learned the names of God that indicate His deity:

  • YAHWEH ~ LORD {Jehovah, Self~Existent One}
  • ELOHIM ~ GOD {Mighty, Strong, Prominent One}
  • ADONAI ~ LORD {Master}
  • RISHON VA~ACHARON ~ THE FIRST AND THE LAST
  • ADONAI YAHWEH ~ SOVEREIGN LORD

Each of these names proclaim that God is the LORD of lords and God of gods, there is no one above Him, He can do anything, He is the beginning and the end…

I’ve always known that God is above all but reading it in His word {and in Hebrew} has been such a learning experience. God established that He is the one who is in control and has the ultimate authority because everything bows to His will {Isaiah 46:9~11}. What a great and powerful God we serve!

A couple of times a week, I plan to share what I’ve learned from my discussions with the ladies from the Women’s Bible Café and my readings from the book  Knowing God by Name: A Personal Encounter by Mary Kassian.

He is Our Guide Until the End {Word Filled Wednesday}

Today my church family is celebrating the Home Going of our pastor’s father. While we’re sad to lose his presence, we rejoice in the knowledge that his sleep is but for a short while, because when the trumpet sounds, he will be joined with our Heavenly Father {1 Corinthians 15:52}.

Children are a Heritage {Yarn Along}

Children are a Heritage

A few weeks ago, a friend called to tell me that he and his wife are expecting their first son in early spring. I couldn’t have been more thrilled for them. I immediately started thinking about what I could get to help welcome their little one into the world and it occurred to me that the greatest gift that I could give is one that comes from the heart ~ a handmade baby blanket.

The blanket will be made of 3 solid colors {dark brown, tan and baby blue} and blue, dark brown and tan multicolored granny squares. I’m trying to decide whether or not to use a contrasting yarn to stitch the squares together. I kind of like the idea of using a cream but I haven’t decided just yet. This is the first time that I’m using granny squares to make a blanket, so I’m being ambitiously creative.

I’m also reading The Midwife’s Confession by Diane Chamberlain. This is one of the books on my list of 12 that I’d planned to read this year {you can see my list by clicking here}. I’m trying to branch out and read a wider variety of books. I haven’t formed an opinion of the book yet, I really just started it but I’ll write a review once I’m finished.

He Keeps Me in Peace {Word Filled Wednesday}

Flowers with Psalms {Word Filled Wednesday}
This past week and a half has been a tough one for me emotionally and spiritually. My sleep has been more fitful than usual and my waking hours have barely passed without me shedding more than a few tears. I’ve sent up the myriad questions to God about everything. Well, you know, he doesn’t have to answer to me but what he did do was provide me with the comfort that comes from knowing that no matter what I’m never alone and if I’ll just trust in him, I can lie down and sleep in peace.
