Being Known

"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations."

--Jeremiah 1:5

During the most difficult times, I held on to this scripture, knowing that someone knew my name, that someone knew my purpose. Press forever forward.

After disappointments and failures and in the midst of seemingly loneliness, somebody knows you. Your purpose is being revealed every day. Press!

That's one of my favorites, too, Judith, along with these two:

Lamentations 3:22, 23 - "It is of the LORD's mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness."

Ah, YES! Thank you, Marion, for that reminder.

Judith, this scripture gives me much comfort. I sometimes feel invisible, and this beautiful post reminds me that God always has faith in me.

Kelly - Your words are beautiful and inspirational. Thank you. God most certainly sees you and I think others do too, my sister, my friend. Continued blessings to you, your husband, and your beautiful little ones. You have a blessed family and you are doing so very well, Kelly. Know this.
