Why name the site

God is the beginning point, our entrance to everything our hearts truly desire.

In our foolishness, we often don't see that. Like the bumper sticker I saw one day: "It's all about me."

But it is not -- It's about God, all about God first, then foolishness begins the trek to wisdom, and we begin to see life as it is.


To God our Savior,
Who alone is wise,
Be glory and majesty,
Dominion and power,
Both now and forever.
(Jude 1.25 NKJV)

God, God, God. . .

First, God. God is the subject of life. God is foundational for living. If we don't have a sense of the primacy of God, we will never get it right, get life right, get our lives right.

Not God at the margins; not God as an option; not God on the weekends. God at center and circumference; God first and last; God, God, God.

(The Message, Introduction to Genesis, Eugene Peterson, p19)
He who speaks from himself seeks his own glory;
but He who seeks the glory of the One who sent Him is true,
and no unrighteousness is in Him.
(John 7:18 NKJV)

The fear of the LORD is a fountain of life, To turn one away from the snares of death. (Proverbs 14:27 NKJV)

In the fear of the LORD there is strong confidence, And His children will have a place of refuge. (Proverbs 14:26 NKJV)

The fear of the LORD is the instruction of wisdom, And before honor is humility. (Proverbs 15:33 NKJV)

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.
(Proverbs 9:10 NKJV).

The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring forever; The judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether.
(Psalms 19:9 NKJV).
