WHAT'S IN A NAME??
Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” And I said, “Here am I. Send me!” ISAIAH 6:8
I will give you hidden treasures,riches stored in secret places, so that you may know that I am the Lord, the God of Israel, who summons you by name. ISAIAH 45:3
He gives power to the faint,and to him who has no might he increases strength.
Lord, you are my God; I will exalt you and praise your name, for in perfect faithfulness you have done wonderful things,things planned long ago. ISAIAH 25:1
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. ISAIAH 41:10
But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. ISAIAH 40:31
For I am the Lord your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you. ISAIAH 41:13
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze. ISAIAH 43:2
Even to your old age and gray hairs I am he, I am he who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you;I will sustain you and I will rescue you. ISAIAH 46:4
I HAVE WRITTEN YOUR NAME ON THE PALMS OF MY HAND. ISAIAH 49:16
We both knew the answer. We have been here before! But even still, we wrestled with the Lord. And I'm ashamed to admit it, but I struggled most of all. I knew the cost of doing this again.(not talking about money) Matthew 10:34-37 had always been one of those verses in the bible that I always just kinda.......wondered about...... didn't want to know?? Well, I can promise you, I/we, have come to know that verse very personally. That "sword" means separation. We get it. It's been heartbreaking and tough. But we trust Him, and believe His promises are true. All of them. So here we are! Trusting, Believing, and fixin to go get this precious treasure of His.

(during my struggle with a "yes", God used lots of scriptures from Isaiah to help me along. The above ones are just a few. We both knew this was his name!)
You too are worthy little man, and you will be forever loved. :)
