What's In A Name? (Mighty God)

I wanted to prepare my heart for a special Worship Service this Sunday, so yesterday I started reflecting on the names of Jesus from Isaiah 9:6...
For to us a child is born,
       to us a son is given,
       and the government will be on his shoulders.
       And he will be called
       Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
       Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Today, I am SO THANKFUL for MY MIGHTY GOD!!!  

When my babies were small, my brother (AKA: "Uncle Buck") taught my children this song, and he would "help them" do the motions...
My God is SO BIG, SO STRONG AND SO MIGHTY, there's nothing my God cannot do!!
The mountains are His, the rivers are His, the stars are his handiwork, too!!
My God is SO BIG, SO STRONG and SO MIGHTY, there's nothing my God cannot do!!
I am thankful that His creation proclaims His majesty, and POWER!!  Every time I see a spectacular sunset, or the brilliant stars in the deep night sky, I am reminded that my God is MIGHTY!

I am thankful that NOTHING IS TOO HARD FOR MY GOD!!!

I am thankful that MY GOD is OMNISCIENT!! He knows everything, and I can place my faith and trust in HIM!!

I am thankful that MY GOD is OMNIPRESENT!! He's everywhere, and there is nothing that happens that he is not aware of.  He is always watching over me and protecting me!!

I am thankful that MY GOD is OMNIPOTENT!! He is ALL MIGHTY and ALL POWERFUL, and even when I can't "see" that power, I KNOW THAT IT'S THERE!!

I am thankful that Philippians 2:13 says that His power is working IN ME!!

I am thankful that Isaiah 40:29-31 tells me that His power is working FOR ME!!!

I am thankful that Acts 1:8 shows me that His power is available to work THROUGH ME!!!

I am thankful that even when I am weak, and feel like giving up, 1 Corinthians 12:9-10 tells me that your GRACE is sufficient for me, and your POWER is made perfect in my weakness!!

Thank you Jesus, for working in me, for me, and through my ordinary life to do EXTRORDINARY things for YOUR PURPOSE and YOUR GLORY!!  Thank you for loving me, caring for me, and having a plan for my life.  You are MY MIGHTY GOD, and I put my trust in YOU!!
