A Million Nicknames

(by Serena Lee)

My dad has a lot of nicknames! My sister and I gave him many such as Bo Bo, Dappy, Cookie, and Cotton Candy. Last night, as I lay in bed I thought about all his nicknames. The only nickname that came to my brain was Dappy. I remembered how he got that nickname. I was trying to write, “Happy Birthday Daddy!” on the paper but it turned out as, “Happy Birthday Dappy!” instead.
When my dad saw it, he laughed. He said it was funny and that he didn’t want me to fix it. The nickname stuck with him forever. It was then I remembered that God also had many nicknames too. But instead of silly nicknames, God had big, important nicknames like Yahweh, Jehovah Jireh, The Word, The Good Shepperd, Lion, Lamb, etc. All these nicknames mean something special. All these nicknames show that God, our God, is omnipotent, omnipresent, and omniscient. I pray that you will know God as the peaceful, loving, and faithful God.
