Some of the wonderful names of Jesus!

This is a 7" x 7" digital graphic intended to be printed and adhere to a block of wood. I have made many hand painted signs and when I began creating digital designs my cousin had suggested that I do this. I know that this is is popular with a lot of companies that manufacture home goods / decor.

The design, here, was inspired by a poster that my son has on his bedroom door. It has more of the many names of Jesus on it and I had been wanting to make David some decorations to put up in his apartment. I have a few ideas, all of them inspirations from the Bible. He is studying to be a pastor. He's almost completed his schooling....I'm so excited for him to start this chapter of his life! My daughter has also just started Bible School. How proud can a mother be? I can't say that I had much to do with David becoming a pastor, for I feel that he had this calling on his life from the start. He began his devotion to God at age 15, he's now 27. Starting when he was 3 years old he couldn't stop asking about Jesus and would have me read him stories from the Bible over and over again. My daughter, Kelley, on the other hand....well, lets just say that I spent many days on bended knee ;) .....but see what persistent prayer does?!!

So, I began to experiment with this design, not really knowing if I could pull it off, so to speak. The background was a graphic that The Graphics Fairy had offered. I brought it in to Photoshop and I used the "burn" tool to make the edges much darker. I've downloaded a lot of fonts to my computer and it was fun going through them all to see what font worked with each name. I had a little space at the top, left, so I thought this fleur de lis would work well in that area....also from The Graphics Fairy.

And, so there it is. It really didn't take long to do and I liked the way it turned out. When I put it on a block it will be able to stand up on it's own. 

And when you stand praying, saying these names is a form of worship. Many times I do this when I pray and it helps me to get into the right frame of mind when I'm in prayer, that is, getting my thoughts purely on Jesus. And you know that the Bible says that "God inhabits the praises of his people".

If you would like this graphic for yourself, I would be more than happy to send you a complimentary digital file so that you can print it off on your own. You may email me at It is also in my Etsy shop, but those of you that read my blog may have it for free....

By the way, I've been posting more than usual this past week. If you have some time you might enjoy seeing some previous posts of things that I've been working on....

Thanks for visiting ~
