I am....

I am. These two words say so much. It saddens me to think some  only know Jesus as a tiny baby in a manger at Christmas. If they only knew He is so  much more than that! He is the Alpha and Omega...our beginning and end. Our names are a big part of who we are. In biblical times it revealed a person's character. God has many names throughout the bible and it amazes me how each one tells His story.

Just by saying His name can bring many emotions out in me. Comforter.Savior.King.Teacher.Hope!

I painted this  sign as a reminder...He is the Great I am and so much more. He is my beginning and my end. He is my Hope when times are hard. He Counsels me when I am confused. He Comforts me when I am weary. He will never leave me...He is my Everlasting Father!
"The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous runs into it and is safe." Proverbs. 18:10
   *** I will now be adding this design to my Etsy shop...."just in case you need a little reminder too"***

  1. Amen! That's all there is to say about that post. I love the board. I bought something similar on Esty but it was about San Francisco. (I love the city) It was also small and expensive and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. I think I could recreate it myself. I love how big yours is though.

  2. Giving you a second on that AMEN!! This is my new fave board you have made. You are so right about how so many think of Jesus as the baby in the manger and nothing else.
    He is my Saviour and Hope.
    Thanks for reminding us of this Susie.
    Blessings to you and your family this Christmas Season.

  7. It's amazing Susie and if I could afford it I would buy it! I love everything about it. My favorite names of God change as He reveals more of Himself to me. This year has been a refining process for me. I have felt every bit at times like I was thrown in the fire, so Refiner and Comforter would be two. Now with our tenuous and scary financial situation, Jehovah Jireh would be another. But "I AM" is always the one that brings me to my knees and humbles my very being.

    Your sign is precious. Thanks for sharing it!

  32. Our Pastor recently gave a message on "I AM" so I really enjoyed this post. I wish Christmas wouldn't be so commercial and people would concentrate on it's true meaning.

    I love the board!

  34. "I Am" is my favorite of all, but the one that means the most to me is that He is my Portion...Lamentations 3:24 says, "I say to myself, 'The LORD is my portion; therefore I will wait for him.'" Mmmm...love that! HE IS ENOUGH!

  35. Beautiful post and reminder. He is our Awesome God!!

  37. Susie, what a wonderful post! I love the sign of all His names. Just amazing! Jehovah-Rapha is the name I'm calling out at this time in my life. Thank you for sharing the scripture and this wonderful concept with everyone.
    Are you selling these signs? If you are I'd love to purchase one!

  52. This is so beautiful. I think we all need a reminder of our Savior's great love for us and his life. Comforter is one of my favorites. He comforts me when no one else can. Thanks Susie.

  53. FABULOUS!!! You have really outdone yourself now.....

  54. Gosh Susie I love this out of all the projects you have made...don't get me wrong I love your stuff but this is just beautiful...I looked in your store and not one there so will you be doing anymore. I would love to see if I could afford it...My dad is a Methodist Pastor and has been one for over 50 years...he went into retirement and only stayed in it 3 months and came out and took a little church in the North Georgia Mountains because they did not have a full time minister. Let me know how much and if you could do me one?

    I also love the church window...my parents would love this also. So tell me if you plan on selling any of those?

  62. I am a newcomer to your blog. I'm loving getting to know you.
    I think that Handel narrowed the names down to Wonderful, Counselor, Almighty God, Prince of Peace. Then he put it to such beautiful music. I can't argue with Handel.
