your name

filed under: I Am Servant on September 29, 2014

whispering your name Jesus

“My Name is constantly abused in this world.  Some people use it carelessly, without even realizing they are talking about the Lord of Lords.  Other people use it as a curse word, which is an attack on who I am.  Every time my name is used, it is recorded in Heaven.  So when you say My Name in prayer, when you call out My Name is praise, when you whisper My Name in trust, My aching heart is soothed.  All the curses in the world are drowned out by a loving whisper… Jesus.  When you speak My Name in these ways, both you and I are blessed.”

I read this in Jesus Calling, 365 Devotionals for Kids by Sarah Young.

And I was simultaneously ashamed and convicted.

I don’t know about you, but today I am going to whisper His praises and name.  I want the King of Kings to be blessed by my words and to hear my appreciation with every loving thought.


From the Worship Project, 365 days of visual art combined with worship songs from across the earth

“God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth.” (Philippians 2:9, 10)

      Thank you my friend. 🙂

    I was visiting my parents this weekend and attended church with them. The ladies’ Sunday School was all about perfectionism and how that is detracting from God and drawing attention to ourselves. I love the quote on the first image and need to remember to whisper His name more and stop shouting my own. Thanks, Amanda!

    • Amanda says:

      That is a great reminder as well Heather… I needed that today! 🙂 Blessings!

  • Patty says:

    I’m reading Jesus Calling too and I love it!!!!

    • Amanda says:

      Awesome! I only have the kids devotional right now… but if you like the “real” version I may need to try that out! 🙂

  • Becky says:

    Yes the adult version is VERY good! Thank you for this post today!

  • Heather says:

    WOW WOW WOW; this post is truly awesome, as is the quote at the beginning. Can I just quickly say that I want to comment on your other post (but here, since I’m sure the comments are older, I was hoping someone else might read this and it help them) – I read your “Let Go[d]” post and I have to tell you just HOW MUCH I have used that in the past couple of weeks – TRULY – that post has transformed my thinking when I am treated unkindly, (or worse) – I hope everyone who reads this comment will go back and read that post of your’s. Especially in this world today, it is SO very needed – to “let go, and let GOD” I just wanted to thank you for that post; it has had a *huge* impact on my daily thinking when I’m out in the world. SO many instances I have used that thought – driving in traffic, people being rude or un-kind, just too many to mention here. I’m sorry for this long comment, one last thing that goes along with this topic; I just came across something that said “Jesus, help me love others the same way you love us” – how powerful! If we all went by that it would help “get over things – let go, let Go(d)” by loving people how Jesus loves us.
    Anyways, thanks for reading! Enjoy your day, Thanks again <3

It sounds like not only is He changing your heart.. but the lives of the people you love, as they are seeing the changes in you as well. So blessed to hear this and so blessed to have heard from you today!!

    Lovely post. I came here from your baking posts on facebook (mmmmmmm!) and I’m entranced. I must confess to cursing on a fairly regular (i.e daily) basis. It’s not something I’m proud of, but it’s something I just do without thinking. I need to think more, to use His name for good! Maybe next time sometihing good happens, I should quiestly say His name in thanks.

    Feeling blessed. Blessed by Jesus. Blessed to have found your website. Blessed to find a baker who walks with faith. Blessed that god has given me the desire to bake.

    I want you to know, you are my go to girl regarding recipes. I was always a good cook for most things, except for cakes goodies. With your recipes, I have become an amazing baker. I get the recipes and the process.

    I have used cake boxes to make cakes for years. I didn’t know what it was like to have a cake rise until making one of yours from scratch. Thank you for your brilliance for making me realize it wasn’t me, it was the process.

    I am not afraid to try something new when it comes to baking. You have an awesome gift, Thank you from the bottom of my heart! Happy Baking!
