"...you will be called by a new name that the mouth of the LORD will bestow."
Do you know, God "gave" me a name for my new daughter before I even knew I would be adopting? I am keeping the name private until I travel, but as this process unfolds, I see more and more how her name is a promise, just like she is!
I will respect her Ethiopian heritage by using at least one of her names as a middle name (she will have at least 2 middle names.)
But God continually reminds me that while HE never changes, the whole process of following Christ is a process of us changing!
I think God likes a little change:) (Or maybe a LOT of change.)
