A few months ago, Kerry and I co-hosted a link up called "Hello, My Name Is ______" which was inspired from this Matthew West song. The linkup was created as a platform for us to boldly share the way God is constantly changing us and molding us to be more like Him.  Before we knew Him, we were called "lost," "hopeless," "destitute."  But with Him, we are now "found," "hopeful," and "co-heirs with Jesus Christ!"

(Check out the music video to get an idea of old names being made new)

But the journey doesn't stop there. Even after we surrender our lives to God through the sacrifice of His son Jesus, change is occurring.

How has God been changing you? Has He recently brought you out of a stronghold? Has He answered a prayer for peace or transformation? Have you finally let go of fear? Or of an anger?  These are ways God is giving you a new name. 

Kerry and I want you to spend the next week thinking about how God has changed you - maybe over your entire relationship with Him or maybe even the last few days. Then, on June 7th, we want you to join us in sharing that testimony through this linkup.

  • Simply start by sharing your old name.
  • Maybe talk about why that was your old name, what the cause was or how you were feeling under that name.
  • Then, share what God has done to bring you out or to mold you further.
  • Finally, share you new name in Jesus and rejoice with the other ladies who share the same!

The turnout was great last time. I can only speak for myself, but I felt I had a deeper grasp of who each of these ladies were after hearing their testimonies.  The Word says to always be ready to give a reason for the hope that you have (1 Peter 3:15). This is a way for you to do that!

Here's the button for you to use in your post and we would also love if you would share about this linkup sometime next week. The more people sharing God's life-changing hand in their lives, the better.

Hello My Name Is

Will you join us?
