I know that many of you are wondering why I changed my name. I am on a journey to become closer to God and strengthen my relationship with Him. One of the steps in my journey has been through Freedom Prayer. It is a prayer session that invites the Holy Spirit to come and speak on behalf of healing wounds, renewing your mind, and transforming your life as God created you instead of the baggage and filth that you have been carrying around. During this prayer, God revealed that He gave me a new name.
Isaiah 62:2 The nations will see your vindication, and all kings your glory; you will be called by a new name that the mouth of the Lord will bestow.
Revelations 3:12 The one who is victorious I will make a pillar in the temple of my God. Never again will they leave it. I will write on them the name of my God and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which is coming down out of heaven from my God; and I will also write on them my new name.
My new name isn't really NEW as in a complete change except in my identity with Christ! Becky was the one who truly fell in love with God and longs to be His child forever! I know it sounds weird or even illogically. It could even play into psychology as schizophrenia. BUT that is only if you are searching for a worldly answer of how God changes your life. He is amazing! I am so blessed!
So even though I am still legally named Sharon Rebecca Linder, I am now Becky (once again for those who knew me before I graduated from high school). God finally gave me the words to explain exactly what happened! I know that God is not dead!
I hope that you will stick with me on this journey and maybe even begin their own journey.
In Jesus' Name! Amen!
Starting doing beading in @1995 after getting alcohol poisoning while out partying with friends. It is a talent that God gave me to keep me from trying to kill myself (literally through binge drinking and then driving while drunk) From broken to Reborn, from lost to Found, God gave me this talent to make jewelry and I didn't realize how relevant it was to my life until I was listening to the radio praising God and this song came on (of course I forgot the name and such) but it talked about taking the old and making it new again. God did that with me as I do that with my jewelry! I love taking old broken pieces and recreating something new and exciting. If the necklace doesn't have earrings with it, I can make some to go with it. Romans 7:24 O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of death. vs 25 I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. It only through Jesus can we be truly changed, He alone has all power to deliver us from the bondage of sin and give us new life.
