May 1st! I awoke with a renewed spirit, refreshed and more focused than I have been in some time. Today is my chance to make a difference in the world. Time to let go of the things pulling me down and staying down due to the intense grip I have on things I should have let go of a long time ago. I am in no way saying the process is going to be easy or painless, but as I am choosing to embark on this journey I hope you will consider joining me. Look to God and God’s Word to lead you, He will not lead you anywhere, causing you to be alone. God loves you and wants only the best for you. One of the devotional sites I use is called “Today…refresh, refocus, renew.” The theme for May is going to focus on “God’s names in the Old and New Testaments, and learn who he is by reflecting on the meaning of his names.” I am looking forward to digging deeper into the scriptures and I hope you can participate as well. I will list the website at the bottom of this entry.
“The most common name for God in the Hebrew Bible is El, meaning “God.” Derived from a Semitic language, the root meaning of El is “might, strength, power.” This name for God occurs widely throughout the Bible…” For more information about names of God click the link below.
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. ~Romans 15:13
Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.
~Blessings and Peace~
