God Called You by Name

“God Called You By Name” by Joan Y. Edwards

God called you by name. I am glad that God called you by name on this earth.  He called you to fulfill a special need of the earth and its people. Take time today and every day of this month to focus on you, your faith in yourself, and your relationship with God. Many people join me in praying for you to feel a deeper connection with God, your almighty father.

You matter to me. Your love for others is a wonderful gift. You have many talents. Thank you for allowing God to touch someone through you…by something you said or did during your lifetime that no one else could have done.

During this month of reflection and the months that follow, the Holy Spirit of God will give you knowledge, courage, acceptance, and wisdom. He will help you accept yourself as you are, a loving child of God. He will heal your body, mind, and spirit to bring you peace about your past. help you accept the present,  and take away your fears about the future.

Take time to rest. Take time to breathe. Take time to live. Take time to eat healthy and walk a little more. Take time to pray and give thanks to God. When you pray, remember that God hears your prayers and answers them in ways that are better than you could ever imagine. I hope today fills you with a comforting awareness of God’s love for you. Celebrate you! God does.

  2. Joan my dear, I am not a Christian. All the same, your prayer/blessing is as true for me as for you. I don’t see a Person in Heaven, but a live, conscious being Who is the whole universe. But your myth and my myth have the same underlying reality.
