Yahweh Yireh יַהְוֶה יִרְאֶה. The Lord Will Provide. Genesis 22:13-14.
The Lord has made provision for me; I have to learn to walk by faith and not be afraid to offer my body as a living sacrifice to Him.
El Olam אֵל עוֹלָם My Eternal God (Gen 21:33),

El Shaddai אֵל שָׁדַּי God Almighty. He has a mighty covenant with us. Even though we are small and have many weaknesses, He still wants to take us higher.
El Roi אֵל רוֹאִי The God Who Sees Me.
Though I am small and fragile, you see me. You see my pain, my righteousness, and my hope ever before you.
Proverbs 27:5 “Better is open rebuke than hidden love.”
Not talking about strong feelings doesn’t make them go away; in fact, they become more pronounced in our attempts to live as though they don’t exist. The two people in this kind of relationship try to get along by skirting issues, their emotions, and ultimately their deep love for each other, and they end up with a shell of a relationship. (Quote from Cloud and Townsend).
Let us learn to have caring confrontation and emphatic conversation in your marriage, parenting, and friendships, so that your relationships can heal, grow, and be even more intimate. Relationships can heal.
