I Have Called You By Name

Today has been one of those quieter days where I stayed home and relaxed. I even read a book, it was great. Went swimming too.

The other afternoon, I was at Becky's house helping her sort through some papers and I came across a card with the paraphrase of this verse on it. I borrowed it so I can share it with you.

"(Insert your name here), I have called you by name, from the very beginning. You are mine and I am yours. You are my beloved, on you my favor rest. I have molded you in the depths of the earth and knitted you together in your mother's womb. I have carved you in the palms of my hands and hidden you in the shadow of my embrace. I look at you with infinite tenderness and care for you with a care more intimate than that of a mother for her child. I have counted every hair on your and guided you at every step. Wherever you go, I will go with you and wherever you rest, I keep watch. I will give you food that will satisfy all your hunger and drink that will quench all your thirst. I will not hide my face from you. You know me as your own as I know you as my own. You belong to me. I am your father, mother, brother, sister, lover, child, friend. Wherever you are I will be there. Nothing will ever seperate us. We are one. I call you my beloved on you my favor rest."

Precious! That's how I felt after inserting my name. Thanks for the reminder that when life gets tough....there is still a great love etched into the nail scarred hands of our Lord!
