Something About That Name

Today I'm re-posting  something I wrote in 2009. I don't know why but since Saturday this post keeps coming to my mind. I do know that lately I find myself just calling on HIS name. Sometimes just saying it quietly over and over to myself...JESUS...JESUS...JESUS.  And lately I hear others just whispering...JESUS...JESUS...JESUS. Could it be that we all just need HIM more and more...everyday! I'm thinking that is true. I know that with every moment that passes I need HIM more. How about you?

I'm thinking this must be for someone out there who needs to just get closer to JESUS. With that in mind, here's an old post and I hope you all enjoy it.


Is there something going on in your life today that is difficult? There is an answer. JESUS is that answer. HE might not make your problems go away, but HE will give you the help you need to get through them. There's a quote I heard recently that says...Whatever brings you to your knees is good for you. I think, sometimes, GOD allows things to come into our lives to draw us closer to HIM. If things always went great, and we didn't have any obstacles to overcome, some of us might not talk to GOD as often as we should. It becomes easy to rely on ourselves for everything. Sometimes we need to be reminded that we need HIM. On your knees, talking to HIM, is where you'll find the help you need. No matter what your problems are, there is where you will find peace. It's a peace that is beyond all human understanding.

There's an old song called "Something About That Name"...

Jesus, Jesus, Jesus there's just something about that name.
Master, Savior, Jesus like the fragrance after the rain.
Jesus, Jesus, Jesus let all of Heaven and earth proclaim.
Kings and kingdoms will all pass away.
But there's something about that name.

Just think about those words for a minute. Say HIS name...JESUS...what happens to you when you say it? How does, softly, saying the name "JESUS" make you feel? What is it that happens inside of you when you call HIS name out? For me, it is like a spring rain shower. If you go outside, and breathe in the fresh air, you feel clean. After the rain, the air is lighter and you can smell all of the plants blooming. The birds start singing. The flowers stand taller. It's as if you can almost see them growing. That's how it is when you just whisper HIS name. JESUS...just say HIS name and breathe in...you feel peace, calmness and clean. When your sick and you call out HIS name...JESUS...it is like a healing balm that flows over you. You might still be sick but...somehow...you just feel better. If you are feeling heavy, and your problems are weighing you down, HE takes the weight from you. You can begin to stand up straight again. Somehow, your spirit is just lighter. Just like the song says, we need to proclaim the name of JESUS! One day soon everything, as we know it today, will pass away. It will all be gone. But the ONE that will always be with us is JESUS. There is no one else like HIM. If you haven't taken the time to talk to HIM today, do it. Whisper...JESUS...and see what happens. HE will be right there to answer you in whatever way you need HIM too. There is...just something about that name...

Philippians 4:6-7

  6 Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. 7 Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.

Philippians 2:9-11

9 Therefore, God elevated him to the place of highest honor
      and gave him the name above all other names,
 10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
      in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
 11 and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord,
      to the glory of God the Father.
