The January 2017 National Codependency Awareness calendar reminds us nasty name-calling labels do not have to stick. Disparaging characteristics do not define us. We know our goodness, and so does our Higher Power. After all, He has called us by name.  And I believe, one of the endearing names He calls us is “Awesome!”


Whenever we find ourselves doubting our good intentions let’s stop, take our own inventory, and practice our awesomeness.

Coincidentally, this is also, “No Name-Calling Week.” For more information see the following link.

I’ve called your name. You’re mine. When you’re in over your head, I’ll be there with you.
When you’re in rough waters, you will not go down. When you’re between a rock and a hard place, it won’t be a dead end—Because I am God, your personal God . . . (Isaiah 43:1-3 MSG).
