I will change your name
You shall no longer be called
Lonely or afraid
I will change your name
Your new name shall be
Faithfulness, friend of God
One who seeks my face.

The first time I heard this song the only thing I could do was fall on my knees in tears and worship Him.
The abuse from my past had been so devastating that, in my eyes, I had become nothing. I would look in the mirror and try to see any sign of life in my eyes, but they were blank. Empty...
While hearing the words to this song I realized I had slowly change from a blob of nothingness into someone with worth, someone with a future. I began to have hope!
The King of Kings, my Father, had poured His healing oil on my wounded spirit and broken heart and slowly I began the metamorphosis into what He created me to be.
Please keep in mind, I'm nowhere near what He intends me to be, but I'm not the total mess I was! I'm moving on up into His will! What an exciting place to be!!!
I was no longer a caterpillar wrapped in an ugly cocoon hiding in shame and fear from everyone.
I was becoming a beautiful, brightly colored sparkly Butterfly. Very Sparkly, very Pink!
As I opened myself up to His word and sought His face, clinging desperately to Him, I s-l-o-w-l-y began to change.
One day I noticed that heaviness on my chest had lifted, I could take a deep breath and not feel that pressure like someone was sitting on me.
Little things, day by day started lifting. I would actually catch myself smiling! I could hear a song in my heart instead of moaning.
God was changing my name!
Isaiah 62:2-4 msg. says, "You'll get a brand-new name straight from the mouth of God. You'll be a stunning crown in the palm of God's hand, a jeweled gold cup held high in the hand of your God. No more will anyone call you Rejected, and your country will no more be called Ruined. You'll be called Hephzibah (My Delight), and your land Beulah (Married). Because God delights in you and your land will be like a wedding celebration."
I am so in awe that God, the creator of the Universe cares so much about me that He even changes my name to suite His purpose for my life. Nothing goes unnoticed by the Father! No detail is too small for Him! Every little thing is meticulously arranged for my benefit.
All I have to do is reach out to Him to receive His benefits.
What ever the past was like, what ever lies we believed about ourselves, they have no part in our New Name, except to help another get though a similar situation.
It's time to get excited!
Dance like no-one's watching!
For those of us going through the name change the past can't hold us down once we get our wings! Sparkly Pink wings for me please!
Now hear this, God is no respecter of persons!!!!
If He did this for me, He will rename anyone who wants to dance to a new tune!
Surrendering to His total love and name change is the best decision anyone can make!
Turn in your depression, illness, financial despair, unemployment, thoughts of suicide, abuse, all of it.
Let the most High God start the process of a name change for you.
If you let Him, He will place on you the name He picked for you at the creation of the world. He's waiting for you.....run to Him today and get your new name, and your wings!
