Names of God
As I came to know my wife, our relationship evolved. And with each change came a new name. She was Jackie, acquaintance, single mom, professional, then friend, out-of-my-league then date, fiancée then wife. She is confidante, mom of our blended family, sage, life partner, visionary, my better half. The more I know her the more names I give her.
And the more we as God’s people come to know Him, the more our ability to be in relationship with Him evolves, the more names we give Him. Elohim, strong creator. Jehovah-raah, the caring shepherd.
