  1. The line from the hymn Before the Throne of God Above, “my name is graven on His hands, my name is written on His heart” will be running thru my brain today. A good earworm to have! Thanks for sharing.

  2. Katylin that is so beautiful. The way you have wrote today’s message. That Jesus calls our name. But it sad Jesus is calling to the unsaved in our families. They don’t here or recognise the master voice calling. Saying “come to me all you that are heavy ladin and I will give you rest” Matthew 11 verse 28-30. Jesus is calling them to come and rest know he is Saviour of their lives. Rest in knowing that. But because Satan the Old Devil has them blinded. To not hear. They are not instreast in hearing the master Jesus call them to rest in him. Come to know Jesus as their saviour. So we have to never give up in our prayers Praying for them. That we know are not saved in our families. That Jesus will call their name one day they will hear that call and come rest in him. Get saved. So Jesus does answer our prayers. In his perfect timing they will respond to Jesus calling their names to rest in him. Get saved. Then we will know Jesus has answered out prayers. Thank you for what you wrote so lovely and well said. Keeping you all incourage in my prayers. Love Dawn Ferguson-Little xx

  3. I awakened feeling sad and hopeless. I don’t usually pick up my tablet this early…4:40 AM…but I did today, and your words were the first thing I saw. Words I needed to hear as I begin my day. Words I’ll keep in mind as I go through this day. Thank you.

  4. Good morning beautiful 🙂 This is exactly what I needed to hear/read this morning.
    Beautiful and brought tears to my eyes. Sending love and peace to all –
    Thank you 🙂 God bless!

  5. Jesus knows our names, everyone in the world. Unbelievable Love. Thank you
    for sharing your precious words
    this morning.

  6. How timely, as we all need to know that we are seen, heard, known and that we as well can hear and know who speaks our name. All around us is chaos, angry mobs, confusion, and pain. Yet one voice speaks and we hear the one that knows us in and out and we immediately know who calls our name. We are His sheep and He is our Shepherd. I love this post and the timeliness is perfect.

  7. Kaitlyn,

    I’ve read that verse where Jesus calls her name “Mary” & she instantly knows who it is. Never occurred to me about my sheep will hear my voice & will follow me. In this tumultuous time we need to come to Jesus with our worries, fears, anything & cling to Him. He is always there ready to listen & help. Great devotional

    Blessings 🙂
