Knowing God

So today at church, they showed the video "Thats My King" by S.M. Lockridge and everything, it just pumps me up! But it's funny because the last few days I have really been thinking about all of the names of God and really meditating on different characteristics of who he is.
But when I think about those different names of who God is, I don't merely want to know them, and I want to experience those different attributes of God. In the Bible, God took the initiative to reveal Himself to his people by experience. Usually, when God revealed Himself to individuals, He disclosed a new name to his character and described his nature. So in the Bible we frequently see new names or titles for God following an event in which someone experienced God.
So I began to think of ways that I have experienced God in my own life. How about you? In what ways have you personally experienced God?
As your....?
