calls them all by name

stars

“He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.  He counts the number of the stars; He calls them all by name.”  Psalm 147: 3-4

He calls them all by name.  Looking up into the night sky when we have the opportunity to be out and away from the city lights, it’s unfathomable for me to imagine even being able to count the number of stars, much less call them all by name.

If my Creator knows all this about the stars, how much more does He know about me?  HE knows  me intimately.  HE knows everything – even the things I don’t even know about myself. 

There have been times in life when I have built walls around my heart, wanting to protect myself from hurt.  Not wanting others to know the turmoil, the trials, the pain I felt.    His Love and Mercy and Compassion spread over me, like bandages on a wound.  He never grows tired of being the Healer.

So as I look into the night sky, I count the joy of each and every star my eyes can see.  They remind me of how He calls me by name.

 

About beegee10

I am a follower of Jesus on the journey of discovering His real, lasting joy through God's grace and thanksgiving. Several years ago, I married my best friend, whom I met in kindergarten many years ago. Life choices took each of us on separate paths, but Divine Appointment brought our paths back together. It's exciting to share this journey with my sweet man - a man who loves God more than he loves me! What a gift!! As a young woman I prayed for God to send a godly man like my daddy to pursue me. I just wasn't listening and abiding when I should have been. Good news in HIS time and in HIS grace, HE did! Not only does my sweet man love me, but he loves my three grown kids as if they were his own. He shares their joys and he hurts when they hurt. I love to hear him pray for each of them daily as we begin and end our days. View all posts by beegee10
