His Name Is…

What are you doing to prepare your heart for Christmas? Besides hanging to stockings, putting up the tree, and finding the best deals on gifts for those you love… I’m talking about preparing your heart – focusing on the real meaning of the season and ending this year off right.

If you’re like me… in the business of the season you let your personal time with God slip away. And if I’m being 100% honest I haven’t have a regular daily devotion since my dad passed. It’s hard to pick up the bible and read. Not only with the move and never being alone or having much space from my littles.. But even in the few moments of calm it’s hard to want to pick it up and devote the time.

Last year, I was introduced to the Love God Greatly bible studies series. They’re made for women, by women and they are offered for free! I’ve done several of their studies and have enjoyed them all. I decided to go ahead and order their book on amazon to support the ministry and to keep all my notes together. But that isn’t necessary.

Over the next four weeks the hundreds of women across the US will be picking up their books, reading the word of God and inviting the Holy Spirit to teach them more about himself. Each week will focus on one the many names of God.

Week 1: Bright and Morning Star 

Week 2: Alpha and Omega 

Week 3: Good Shepherd 

Week 4: Prince of Peace 

Each week I plan to recap what the Lord is teaching me about himself. I hope something will encourage you. If you have been looking for a easy devotional I’d encourage you to check out their site! They also blog through the devotional and I have appreciated their insight.

Blessed is the one

who does not walk in step with the wicked

or stand in the way that sinners take

or sit in the company of mockers,

but whose delight is in the law of the Lord,

and who meditates on his law day and night.

That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,

which yields its fruit in season

and whose leaf does not wither—

whatever they do prospers.

Not so the wicked!

They are like chaff

that the wind blows away.

Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,

nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.

For the Lord watches over the way of the righteous,

but the way of the wicked leads to destruction.”

Psalm 1 sums it up for me… I want to delight in the Lord, meditate on his word. I believe the Lord will watch over me and my family. But I must meditate. Dig deeper. I’m trusting I will grow deeper in Love with my savior as he reveals more of himself through his work.

Until next week! Goodnight. ❤
