Maybe in the stillness of the morning you wonder your purpose and if you really matter in the big scheme of things.

Or maybe your mornings are filled with kids fighting, babies crying while the dogs are barking at the squirrel, the floors are filthy, the sink is full of dishes, and that pile of laundry – oh it just needs to have its own name – and you are tired. You look in the mirror and wonder what happened to you because you don’t remember who you used to be.

Or maybe your marriage is in complete turmoil right now and you feel absolutely lost and alone. You’ve been betrayed by the man that was supposed to be your protector and best friend for life and you are hurting.

My sisters, it doesn’t matter the condition of your home or the turmoil that surrounds you –

I need you to know this very moment He is with you.

He is sitting right next to you on the couch – He has his arm around you. Or maybe you are sitting in your favorite comfortable chair or maybe just getting out of the bed today takes more effort than you have to offer – you think you are by yourself, but in reality you are sitting in your Abba Father’s lap and right this very moment He is running His fingers through your messy hair, and that tear that just fell down your cheek, His finger gently wiped it away. Or maybe you are in the bathroom, hiding so no one hears your cries of desperation. Not even the bathroom is safe to hide from our Jesus. He’s right there with you.

You are not alone. 

The God of the Universe – the One that hung the stars, the moons, the sun – He knows your name.

It is written on the palms of His hands. 

Where ever you are right now, turn off the television, let the kids cry, leave the dirty dishes – and just pause – listen to this song – let Him nourish you and comfort you through these words.

You Know My Name




Lord, our Lord,
    how majestic is your name in all the earth!

You have set your glory
    in the heavens.
Through the praise of children and infants
    you have established a stronghold against your enemies,
    to silence the foe and the avenger.
hen I consider your heavens,

    the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars,
    which you have set in place,
what is mankind that you are mindful of them,
    human beings that you care for them?
 You have made them a little lower than the angels

    and crowned them with glory and honor.
You made them rulers over the works of your hands;

    you put everything under theirfeet:
all flocks and herds,
    and the animals of the wild,
the birds in the sky,
    and the fish in the sea,
    all that swim the paths of the seas.

Lord, our Lord,
    how majestic is your name in all the earth!

Psalm 8
