Would God mention your name?

This morning, I was thinking about Job and how God mentioned his name to Satan. God knew Job and had a beautiful relationship with him. God knew that when Job was pressed and crushed under the pain and hardships, he would draw closer to God instead of turning away. And it made me pause and think, does God know that about me? Would He mention my name, as He did Job’s?

As I sit here, all I can think is that I want God to be able to mention my name. I don’t want to love God only when He blesses me and curse Him when hardships arise. Despite my circumstances, I want to love God and have a beautiful relationship with Him.

I have suffered significant losses in my life. I’ve gone through things that could have come between God and me. I’ve been through periods in my life where I felt so alone and cried in the darkness of the night many times. But through it all, I just wanted God to hold and help me.

If I’m being completely honest, there have been times when I’ve been disappointed because I wanted God to answer my prayer differently. But instead of staying in the disappointment, I’ve learned to ask God to show me a different perspective about it all. During the hard times, I know in the depths of my soul that God has a perfect plan for me and that what He does is for me and not to me.

During some periods of my life, when things felt unbearable, I, too, felt as if it might have been better for me if I had never been born. But then, during the most beautiful parts of my life, I am so incredibly grateful that God blessed me to live. I’m alive to love and be loved.

I LOVE GOD when things are tough in my life and when they are outstanding. I want to have a beautiful relationship with Him every day. I want to grow and prosper for Him. I want to praise Him in the valleys and on the mountaintops.

Every day, in every way, I want to love God despite my circumstances!
