Celebrating the Excellencies of His Name

They that know thy name will put their trust in thee.
Psalm 9: 10

The name of the LORD is a strong tower;
   the righteous man runs into it and is safe.
Proverbs 18: 10

This is a series in which "we want to see Him fully, closer as if to say; we long to know Him better, to worship and love Him more. And we will do this by studying His names. Each of His names, reveals part of Jesus' identity; each name tells us something about the One who has come to us;  each one tells us of His majesty, His Divinity, His purpose. Each one of His names "possess profound significance and unfading glory" . Oh that we may know Him more!"

My Photo
If I am happy it is because of God! God, in His sovereign grace, has called me out of darkness into His Admirable light. He has opened my eyes and has shown me the way to Eternal Life. He has set my feet on a journey, and now I am walking Daily on My Way to Heaven. I did not find Jesus, He found me. I did not seek Him, yet He called me. I did not love Him, yet He loved me. I deserved death and He gave me Life. This is the place where I keep a journal of my life under His sun and by His grace!

Borrowed Words

"It becomes us to spend this life only as a journey toward heaven... to which we should subordinate all other concerns of life. Why should we labor for or set our hearts on anything else, but that which is our proper end and true happiness?"

Jonathan Edwards

"I am still pondering God's greatness in His creation. I have so many questions that I would like to ask the Lord about the universe, creation, the fall of man... But when I'm in heaven, I wonder if I will even remember them. At that time, being in the presence of God will be enough. I'm thankful that I can look forward to that day."


“Heaven is not here, it’s There. If we were given all we wanted here, our hearts would settle for this world rather than the next. God is forever luring us up and away from this one, wooing us to Himself and His still invisible Kingdom, where we will certainly find what we so keenly long for.”

- Elisabeth Elliot, Keep a Quiet Heart
