John 20:1-18

But now, thus says the Lord, your Creator, O Jacob,
And He who formed you, O Israel,
“Do not fear, for I have redeemed you;
I have called you by name; you are Mine! ”           (Isaiah 43:1)
These words leap off the page into my heart. With these words I am called to swift passage into the waiting arms of Jesus.
He knows your name. How does knowing this release you to live within the confines of today?


Amazing God! Amazing love! Thank you this day for your amazing Gift … and calling me your own. May I rest in that love. Help me to recognize my identity and acceptance in you. Amen.

~ Randi Rowan, Program Assistant
