He Knows Me By Name

28 Sep

He Knows Me By Name-  There are several Marys in the Bible, but Mary Magdalene was called by name. He knows us by name, too… we are engraved in the palms of His hands… and He loves us each individually.

Blog-Isaiah 49.13

Have you ever thought to yourself that maybe you do not matter or that no one cared about you?  On days like that, we need to go back to this beautiful verse.

No matter how long we have served the Lord, there are those periods of time we are overwhelmed with what seems impossible – times we are struggling with life.

He loves us so much he has cut, engraved, written our names on the palms of His hands.  What a beautiful picture of His love for each and every one of us!  He opens his hands and He thinks of me!  What a picture of those same hands that created each one of us, the same hands that were nailed to the cross.  Those are the precious hands of one that cares so much!  His loves us with an everlasting love!

      Lynda I have always wanted to write. Melissa Taylor has encouraged me to start small with a book about our dog, but I don’t seem to find the time. Thank you for the encouragement. Love you!

    Oh Debbie! Beautiful as always sister. As I was reading that, engraved in the palms of His hands, it reminded me of the cross. Whether He was nailed by the hands or wrists, it was those nails that “engraved” us on the palms of His hands. Love you!

    I have always loved this verse but one word you wrote really stuck out to me. “Cut”. He “cut” me onto His hands… that involves pain. That involves struggle. Reminds me of having a circumcised heart, which I know has nothing to do with this verse, but is what God wants to do for us… You’ve got me thinking, sweet lady!
