How many times could you use some encouragement? When you’re about to try something new, or get out of your comfort zone. Or just to remind you you’re ok. Maybe even about your name..
I was getting coffee with some special service recently. I asked the name of the server taking such care with my order, who replied “Lucas.” I replied, “nice meaning” and he mentioned actually not knowing the meaning.
He said he never knew, beamed, and I was so happy to share it!
But how many of us need reminders that we are light-givers, warriors, wisdom-tellers,… in this world?
Your name has meaning. But none of ours are unique.
Even if your parents made up our name, it may have roots in other names. Or maybe they had an intention.
It might be worth looking into. A name we can choose to live up to, strive for, or even exist Against.
And who hasn’t heard their name spoken in anger?
Shouted at, annoyed with, spoken with a sigh of dissapointment. We have all experienced this.
So here comes a favorite bible verse/promise/hope:
One known only to us, having never been spoken or repeated on another, much less breathed with disparragement, embarrassment, in jest or with a bad attitude.
A name completely unique to us is fitting to a completely unique person.
It suits us, all individuals, from hand and finger prints, irises, teeth, tongue prints.. even each hairstrand..
For God’s sake, even snowflakes that last an instant and dissapear for eternity, are each one of a kind, never to be repeated.
So how much more you, fellow Human?!
“He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.”
I can’t wait to find out what mine may be. What might you choose?
Jesus H. Christ! Even Jesus is supposed to get one! 😉
And stop by my Soundcloud anytime for some jamming.
Take it easy peeps, sending a latte love,
I sometimes use “He” as a pronoun for God but fully recognize God with male/female “identity” (for lack of a better word), as demonstrated in Genesis 1:27, expressed throughout the bible, and evidenced by humanity. See two-part post: Transgender God for more.
