Blessed is the Name - Do You Feel Flawed


Do you feel flawed?  Do you feel like you were “born under a cloud?”

From Chapter One in
Seventh Dimension – The Door, a Young Adult Christian Fantasy





“Rachel stood and recited a Jewish prayer. “Blessed is the name of His glorious kingdom forever and ever.”


God has existed since before the beginning of time. He created time. He created the universe. He created you, but He is not a created being.

In Revelation 1:8, God says, “I am the Alpha and the Omega, who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.”

God knows everything—the number of hairs on your head, even what you had for dinner six months ago. Nothing is outside of God’s knowledge.

There is only one God. God is not Mohammad, Buddha, or Karma. Claim it. Believe it. Embrace it. God is God.

Nothing can take away your relationship with God or Jesus Christ unless you allow it. God’s power is omnipotent and perfect. Cling to that when life seems out of control—and life does have a way of wreaking havoc, leading to frayed nerves, discouragement, and even depression.

In our imperfect world Satan roams freely devouring those he can. Whether you realize it or not, Satan wants to destroy you.

You are okay. In fact, you are more than okay. You are created in the image of God. Don’t forget it.

God has promised when you get to heaven to give you a special name that only He knows. Think about what name God might give you. What is your character? Who are you when no one is looking?

God wants to bless you with good things. Sometimes those good things include suffering. God knows how to turn hardships into blessings. These “blessings” will help you grow in your dependency on Him and make you mature.

If everything were easy, you wouldn’t need God and you would remain untested. Then when hard times came—and hard times always come—you would break. Blessings come in many forms, but God will never allow you to be tested beyond what you can bear.

Satan will call you all sorts of names to make you feel like you are no good. Don’t believe those lies. Remember how much God loves you. Put Jesus Christ first in your life, claiming His victory over the sin that tugs at your heart. Only then will you experience God’s glorious kingdom in your life – the Seventh Dimension.

The Seventh Dimension is a place where you can be close to God and develop your relationship with Him—a spiritual place within your grasp if you call out to God and ask Jesus Christ to come into your life. Blessings can abound even in the blessedness of nothing. For in nothingness God can be your all in all things, seen and unseen.

God will endure forever. His Kingdom will endure forever. And ever. And ever.
