I'm joining Jill of Forever N Ever N Always each Monday to reflect and study "Praying the Names of God" by Ann Spangler. I was so excited to receive a birthday gift card to Amazon from a good friend. (Thank you Iris!)
Elohim is the name for our Creator God; the One who began it all. Genesis 1 tells me that God created the heavens and the earth.
My camera has been getting used more often. However, at the moment I can't locate it since I can't remember which box I packed it in during this move. It's a bit frustrating for me. :(
God is the beginning of my day 98% of the time. The days that I miss even my husband can tell the difference. I do run to Him often throughout my day. He has truly become my peace ...in the midst of uncertainty.
My problem is that I get in His way. I want what I want instead of resting in Him and trusting Him. But I'm slowly learning. And I find that (unfortunately) it often takes trials to learn some of the most important lessons.
If I really reflect on the fact that God created the earth and all that is in it and that He created me to reflect His image, I'm overwhelmed by that. He has given me all I need to live ...a life of love.
Forget about self esteem; I have God esteem. In myself, I am nothing but He in me; wow.
"Elohim God, I praise You as my creator. You are the beginning of all things and I thank you for the beauty of Your creation. I pray that I will become more aware of my surroundings and thank you more often. I thank You for creating me in Your image when I certainly didn't deserve it. But You loved me and I thank you. Amen."
Blessings and love,
