If your name is Betty

If your name is Betty, it is the English form of Elizabeth, from the Hebrew word el’ishebha, meaning “God is my oath, joined with God, blessed by God.” You are blessed by God by being in union with the Divine. An oath is a promise, and your name reveals that innately you have promised to be in union with God. This joining is mutual, as God is also in union with you. God said in Joshua 1:9: “The Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.” Ralph Waldo Trine said in his book In Tune with the Infinite: “To be at one with God is to be at peace.” Through this union there is much blessing. The dictionary tells us that to bless is “to consecrate and to make holy. William Butler Yeats said in his poem “The Two Trees:” Beloved, gaze in thine own heart, / The holy tree is growing there.” Holiness is deep within your heart and is a part of your essence. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow said in The Spanish Student: “In that stillness which most becomes a woman, calm and holy, thou sittest by the fireside of the heart, feeding its flame.” Be at peace and know that you are truly blessed and made holy in your union with the Divine.
