My name is Kathy Irisha Rosario, but most people call me Irisha. Irisha is Hebrew for the "fear of God". This means that I am not afraid or worried of what others think of me. I do not fear man. The fear of God is the fear of what would happen to me if I didn't have Him on my side. Fearing God also means that I respect Him, like a servant to his master.
Proverbs 1:7 "The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction."
Wisdom is knowing what to do with knowledge. You can't have wisdom without knowledge, but you can't have knowledge without the fear of the Lord. It's like a domino effect.
It's funny I was named that because something that I struggle with sometimes is being afraid of what people think of me. I'm always trying to look my best and being that "good girl". I used to be afraid of messing up and people seeing me mess up. However, when these thought creep in, God reminds me and says,
"You shouldn't be worried about what they think. The only thing that matters is what I say and I say that you, Irisha, are mine. And I created you in my image. It's not a big deal if they don't like you because the only thing that really matters is that I love you."
Everyday I continue to remind myself that God loves me.
