My New Name

Written by Julie

Call me by my new name.
Give me strength to not give in
To the lies whispering in my head,
The lies that say I’m not enough.

Call me by my new name.
Drown out the call of the world;
May I hear only Your voice
Reminding me who I am in You.

Call me by my new name.
Tell me I’m forgiven,
I’m loved, I’m redeemed,
I’m set free, I’m Yours.

Call me by my new name.
Help me to live
In a way that honors You,
That makes You proud to claim me.

Call me by my new name.
Don’t let me lose sight of who I was,
Yet not forget who I’ve become
By Your power and love.

Call me by my new name:
Child of the King, Overcomer,
One who is saved, Blessed,
Freed captive, Recipient of grace.

Hi, I'm Julie, a 17-year-old lover of books, music, and Jesus. I'm finishing up my junior year in high school (Abeka Academy) and have been blogging for two and a half years. I also co-publish a digital magazine called Priceless geared toward teen girls. My desire is to use my words to glorify my Saviour and to encourage you in your walk with God. I'd love to hear from you!

The heavens speak of God–do we listen, pay attention? The earth is full of God’s riches–do we seek and cherish them? The beauty of Jesus can be found in ordinary today–do we pause to see and admire?

I’ll lie on the operating table, and I’ll close my eyes in trust and rest as You heal my failing heart.
