Word Filled Wednesday ~ El Roi

I decided to join in on Word Filled Wednesday this week. You can link up at Lori's blog All You Have to Give.

For the past two weeks I've been studying Ann Spangler's book called "Praying the Names of God". The first week I studied God as Elohim (Creator) and it caused me to become more aware of His creation.

This week I'm focusing on God as El Roi (the God who sees all). It's not too late to join in this study at Jill's Forever N Ever N Always.

I took this photo while visiting one of my favorite places; Carmel, California. This is the Lone Cypress along Pebble Beach's 17 Mile Drive.

It reminded me of both God as Elohim and God as El Roi. What a comfort to know that He is the Creator of all things and yet ...He sees me.

Blessings and love,

Debbie Petras

  1. Hi Debbie, What a wonderful post. Praise God! I am doing a year long speaking series on the Character of God- and His character is so tied into His Names! Oh, don't you love what His names tell us about who our Great God is? Thanks for telling me about the bible study. I'm going to check it out.
    Blessings to you!

    A truth to cling to!

  6. Hi Debbie Sweetie...
    I love this post. Your photo that you took in California is just gorgeous. Thank you for sharing. I will have to check this link out that you have provided to see more about what this study is all about.

    I wanted to pop over and tell you that we Jamie and I are hosting this next AZ Bloggers luncheon the end of the month, and we would so love for you to come. We are growing in numbers, many new faces to share with. Please stop by my blog for all of the information. We would love to see you come sweetie. Hope you have a beautiful week. Country hugs...Sherry

  7. That is just beautiful, Debbie.

  8. Amen - I love the truth of this Psalm!

  9. Interesting that depending on my "heart health" the fact that He sees me can be either convicting or comforting! Happy WFW!

  10. How neat! Love that verse.

    That study sounds great. I'm doing the Patriarch's with Beth Moore now and learning those names too.

    Blessings to you this WFW♥

  11. That is lovely and that is a name of God I do not have on this list that I gave the ladies at Bible study today....we were looking at the Lord's prayer and I was meditating on the words "Our Father"
    And it lead onto the names of God.
    I shall be adding another and looking for that book.
    I have a book I borrowed but I am not sure if it is in that.....and it was not in the list I copied online..from somewhere??
    It is interesting tonight..each post has a real link to my day.

  12. Good Morning Debbie...
    Please check with Marty @ A Stroll Thru Life. She lives out in Surprise, and I know she carpools sometimes with CeeKay and maybe you could get with her at a drop off point and catch a ride. I believe we could start a carpool for folks too. Anyone needing? Anyone willing to drive? I can add that to my post and maybe it will help others too.

    Talk to you soon...Country hugs, Sherry

  13. sounds like a wonderful bible study. You created a wonderful post as well

  14. This was great Deb, and I am soo with you. The creator of this vast and unbelievable universe is mindful of me? Doesn't get much better. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Deb

  15. Debbie...I agree how awesome it is to know that HE sees me...and has me n His hands.

    Blessings & Aloha!
    (I finally realized that I cannot leave a comment on every single post! haha...so from now on when I am doing some catch up blog reading...I will read what I have missed, but try to comment only on the most recent one. I say try... :o)

  16. Amen Debbie! His eye is on us! We are blessed! Great photo and verse. Blessings.

  17. So glad you joined us today. I remember going down that drive when visiting CA about 30 years ago. Thank you for bringing that memory back to me and the verse.

  18. I love the names of God. I intended to do that group too, but things got in the way. I have the book though and plan on hopefully catching up!

  19. Love the photo. It goes perfect with your post WFW post!

    Carmel is beautiful! I love driving down that way!

  20. "He sees me".....amidst all that beauty, He sees even me..thank you for reminding me.......that gorgeous drive I know of, (ate at Post Ranch Inn), oh let me stop and SEE that beauty of MY CREATOR.

    And are you kidding me, what on earth gets better than a Norwegian-style cabin-home-etc...I have a little "porsgrund" coffee set....my Norwegian relatives have the word "cozy" down....they sit with their coffee and goodies around any table anywhere....they love "koinonia", I'd say that's as good as it gets!

    Thanks for once again laying out your "Heart Choices" Debbie...choosing God's will over your own...the ultimate best. I too seek that so much.

  21. Blessings Debbie...Love that photo of Carmel (sigh) brings back memories for me also haven't been there once with my husband.

    So thankful that the eyes of EL ROI are on us and that His love is unfailing! He is so wonderful! I believe that ELOHIM created that place in Carmel just for His love to bless us!

    EnJOY WFW...looks like many are enJOYing YOURS!

  22. Just had to stop by and say what an amazing photo and how perfectly it fits with your post.

    Also thought I'd let you know I was happy to get the joyful 'toons email this week, and it made me think of you. I subscribed a long time ago and then realized after than when you posted another cartoon that I wasn't getting any. So I went back to the site and apparently the confirmation email went to spam. I got it fixed now.

    Have a great day!

  23. Sweet fried, that picture is truly worth a thousand words! What a vast expanse there...how much more vast is God's love for us! :-)

  24. Fantastic photo and I love the Word of God!

  25. Amen...beautiful picture and verse...like the song says...I stand amazed....

  26. Yes, my sweet friend, He sees all. Such a beautiful picture of His creation.

    I've missed you too....thank you for your unfailing love and prayers.

  27. Hi Debbie,
    I'm thinking I will probably go to the AZ get together. I looked it up online. Looks like it is just off the 101. Mesa is quite a ways but some came farther than that to go to Gooseberries.

  28. What a beautiful photo! I love the verse to go with too. Enjoy your day...

  29. Very powerful post Debbie! God bless all of the world...

  30. Beautiful Pic & verse !

  31. What a gorgeous photo, Debbie. The Scripture passage you have chosen is just marvelous. But then again, His Word is marvelous all together.

    Love & peace,

  32. Beautiful sharing. Love the photo and enjoy GOD!!!

  33. I'm from the east coast - so those trees are so unique looking to me - Just another example of how God is an amazing diverse Creator of such wonderful and never ending variety.

    It is hard to imagine the beauty of this world being nothing compared to what awaits us when we join Him.


I love to read your comments! I know you have something to share so join in the conversation. And thank you for taking the time.
