Capitalizing the "H"

When I write about God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, or refer to Him as “Him” – I always capitalize. Always.

It’s a matter of respect for me.

If I speak of a man and say “he” – I don’t capitalize. It’s not that I don’t respect the said individual, it just is that it’s not proper grammar. But when it comes to my Lord and Savior, I always, ALWAYS remind myself when I’m speaking of Him, that He is Holy. He is my Savior. He is in authority over me and it’s as if I’m bowing down in my heart to Him when I capitalize.

To me, it’s almost as if I’m taking His name in vain if I don’t capitalize.

You see, I idolize God. I worship Him. I adore Him. And I never want to forget that He is my King. That He is powerful. Ruler over ALL.

For me, capitalizing is one small reminder of where my heart lies and to whom I have given it over to.
