Abiding in His Word wrote:My favorite verse in the book of Zephaniah is:
Zep 3:17 The LORD thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing.
We used to sing that in song in one of the groups I belonged to.
Thanks for sharing your internet name meaning, Zephaniah! I've never heard a sermon on that book, but would love to!

AndCanItBe wrote:I have an obvious one too, but it's one of my favorite hymns.
AND CAN IT BE THAT I SHOULD GAIN
AN INTEREST IN THE SAVIOUR'S BLOOD?
DIED HE FOR ME, WHO CAUSED HIS PAIN?
FOR ME, WHO HIM TO DEATH PURSUED?
CHORUS: AMAZING LOVE! HOW CAN IT BE
THAT THOU, MY GOD, SHOULDST DIE FOR
HE LEFT HIS FATHER'S THRONE ABOVE,
SO FREE, SO INFINITE HIS GRACE;
EMPTIED HIMSELF OF ALL BUT LOVE
AND BLED FOR ADAM'S HELPLESS RACE:
'TIS MERCY ALL, IMMENCE AND FREE;
FOR, O MY GOD, IT FOUND OUT ME. CHORUSX2
LONG MY IMPRISONED SPIRIT LAY,
FAST BOUND IN SIN AND NATURES NIGHT;
THINE EYE DIFFUSED A QUICKENING RAY,
MY CHAINS FELL OFF, MY HEART WAS
I ROSE WENT FORTH, AND FOLLOWED
NO CONDEMNATION NOW I DREAD;
JESUS, AND ALL IN HIM, IS MINE!
ALIVE IN HIM, MY LIVING HEAD,
AND CLOTHED IN RIGHTEOUSNESS DIVINE,
BOLD I APPROACH THE ETERNAL THRONE,
AND CLAIM THE CROWN, THROUGH
CHRIST MY OWN. CHORUSX2
CrystalClear wrote:The "why" of CrystalClear...
Every once in a while, I'll have a very vivid dream, which, unlike my normal ones, follows a specific thought in a precise manner, and the dream stays in my memory banks and does not fade. They also always involve Him.
This particular dream was a cupped hand holding up an extremely plain wine glass to a brilliantly backlit setting. The only notable thing about it was it was exceedingly fragile--a breath could break it. I asked why it was so very plain and soap-bubble-like...He was worthy of a strong, solid-gold, jewel-encrusted chalice!
Turns out, the very plain, almost-not-there glass is what He wants me to be for Him. He wants me to be absolutely crystal clear, with no adornment, so that His infilling will be what everyone sees. He wants me fragile so that His preserving power, finesse and tenderness will be displayed, because He has determined to be the only One Who can handle me without damage.
So, while time will tell whether this dream is true or not, and I often laugh at myself in the mirror because I feel more like a clod of dirt than a glass that could become suited to frame His glory, I'm willing to let Him make me...CrystalClear.
kazbo wrote:Well, mine is not nearly as imaginative as some others here. Kaz because my initials are K.A.S. which when spoken, come out sounding like "kaz" and 'bo' because whenever I put in kaz or kas as a user name it's already taken. So I just stuck bo on the end and there you go.
My first name is Kathie which means "pure" and my middle name is Ann which means "full of grace". Whew. Don't know if I've always lived up to that...
