Choosing a name for your child will be one of the most exciting things you will have to do while you wait.
We didn’t pick names until we were expecting and even then, we waited well into the pregnancy, and only decided on names after our babies were born.
Some already know what to call their new born. It maybe a family name. A name after a grandparent, or someone important whom they want to honour by naming their child after them.
Mary and Joseph had no such problem. The name of Jesus was chosen by God. They didn’t have to debate or research appropriate names for Him.
God chose the name “Jesus” because his name was to be exactly what it means.
Jesus – saviour.
Immanuel – God with us.
Wonderful Counsellor – one who guides and leads His children in the right path
The Everlasting Father. – a father who is there all all times
The prince of Peace. – Does exactly want it says. He brings us peace.
As you ponder over the name for your child, think on the name of Christ.
What does He mean to you?
Infertility is a name but the name of Jesus is “wonderful counsellor, he will counsel you in making the right choices.
He will be with you during dark and disappointing days.
He will be your “prince of peace” during the turmoil of your infertility journey.
As you await another surgery,. Think of His name,
“God With Us”. He is Always With Us holding you and working out his best plans for you.
As you contemplate the future wondering if it will ever come to pass. Remember He is the prince of peace. Invite His peace into your heart.
