SHE BELIEVES: BELIEVE HIS NAME

Good morning and Happy Friday!

I am super excited to have Mary from The Beloved Rose sharing her Blessed Because She Believes testimony today.  The heartbeat of She Believes is to encourage women everywhere to walk in the truth that we are truly blessed when we believe God. Not just believe in God but truly believe God, believe who He is and His word for our whole life.  Today, Mary shares the beauty of believing God our Abba Father.  I hope you enjoy her beautiful words and find encouragement from her story of pressing into Abba Father. After you read her article you can find out more about Mary in her bio below as well as links to hop on over to The Beloved Rose and check out all the really great encouragement in the Lord they have going on over there!  I was fortunate to have been invited to share my “Her Story” in a guest series they host, you can read my recent post here.

BLESSED BECAUSE SHE BELIEVES: GUEST POST

As God’s children, we know Him by many names. And each name reminds of a truth, a promise, a hope that our lips form as well call on Him.

Some know Him best as Counselor. To others, God is their Almighty Defender. The artist envisions Him as Creator. The lacking pray to Him as Provider. The hurting are pulled into His embrace as Comforter. And to those who are broken, God warmly extends His hand, along with His grace, and says, “Hello, I’m Redeemer.”

But there is one name that I am most drawn to. It is the name I find myself clinging to, curling up to, weeping in disappointment to, and praising in joy to. This name has stitched me together as a new creation. And there is not a nook or cranny of my being that has not been exposed and radically altered because of this name.

Father.

It calms all my fears. It melts my cold and distant heart. It causes a spring of affection to bubble up inside of me until I’m overflowing with praise.
If God is my Father, a pearly string of truth follows such a claim.

Because I believe God is my Father, I believe I am adored. {1 John 3:1}
Because I believe God is my Father, I believe I am protected. {Psalm 91:4}
Because I believe God is my Father, I believe I am comforted.  {2 Corinthians 1:3-5}
Because I believe God is my Father, I believe I am provided for. {Matthew 6:8}
Because I believe God is my Father, I believe I am never alone. {Deuteronomy 31:8}

I believe that we open our eyes to an abundant life of freedom, fullness of joy, and absolute surrender when we open our eyes to God as our Father. It changes every part of who we are and how we live.

When God becomes our Father, we are given a new set of eyes to see through, a heavenly perspective that is unwavering and dripping with promises.
A butterfly becomes a gentle reminder of God’s nearness to you.
The blooming of a flower becomes a gift, signed “Love, Dad.”
Stormy seasons are met with confidence because your Father can still them with a whisper.

Those messy moments that were nowhere on your blueprint of life become God’s unique invitation to a life according to His blueprint designed just for you.
Over time, you begin to see His fingerprints in every detail.  And as He shapes your heart, you begin to realize how much you look like Him.

That is the true miracle of believing. As you daily fix your heart on the truth of God, especially as your Father, you begin to look, speak, and act like that very truth.
Believing in God sparks change.
And it is a change not just for the better, but for the absolute best.

MEET TODAY'S GUEST POST AUTHOR

Meet Mary, from The Beloved Rose:

“‘Behold, I am the servant of the Lord; let it be to me according to your word.” Luke 1:38 has been the consistent call on Mary’s life for each of her twenty-something years; to live as servant of her glorious King, willing and obedient to follow where His sweet words lead her. Little mercies sprinkled throughout her life sparked a passion for crafting words, simple pleasures like children’s books, the pitter patter of Washington rain, and her treasured Pocahontas socks. From these seeds planted deep within her, the art of writing began to root itself and blossom. The Beloved Rose is the flower that opened itself before her as a testimony to God’s faithful pursuit of our gifts, bringing glory to His name and hope to His people. It is her joy and bliss to use these words of hers to affirm daughters of the Most High in their unshakable identity and inspire them to fearlessly live out that calling.
