Calling You By Name

All things considered,

Know your worth.

Not in a self-absorbed way.

But know it in truth.

You are heard,

You are seen,

You are known,

By a detailed and loving God.

May these simple truths grip your heart today,

And every day to come.

May you acknowledge that life is not about defining yourself,

But about uncovering the truth about who you have always been- His.

Live boldly in the awareness of your individuality as His child.

Withstanding the urge to hide or shrink back.

Accept the invitation from Heaven today,

An invitation that says “come as you are.”

Come as you are with your wounds.

Come as you are with your questions.

Come as you are with your fears.

Come as you are with your uncertainties.

Come as you are with your pain.

Come as you are with your frustrations.

Come as you are with your sins.

Come as you are with your imperfections.

Come as you are with your limitations.

Come as you are with your anger.

There's an invitation that says “come as you are,

And let Me meet you there,

Let Me love you there.”

Let go of the illusion of options.

For there is only One way,

And He happens to be Truth and Life.

Let Him be your point of reference.

Your Standard of Living.

Your Everything.

For without Him we are nothing.

Know that the transformative work that He is doing in you,

Isn't a matter of going from bad to good,

But from broken to whole.

From lost to found.

From dead to living.

He knows you, by name.

Whether you feel like just another face in the crowd,

Whether you feel like your situation is too big,

Or too small.

Don't allow your feelings,

Or situation,

Or status,

To disqualify you from the personal present love of your Heavenly Father.

He is calling you by name.
