At the beginning of the new year something we talked about was not caring about what other people think. In a world that is SO saturated with avenues of comparison, it is hard not to look at the way someones life appears and compare it to your own. When we compare we are often comparing our worst traits/qualities with someone else's best, how backwards is that?! The song He Knows My Name by Francesca Battistelli has resonated with me over the past couple of weeks. This is what she says about the song: "The fact that the God of the universe--Who created every atom on this planet and every star in the sky--knows my name and calls me by name, and even named me, there's such a power in knowing and understanding what that means. For me, it's an anthem, and I really hope this song can be become that for young women and young men, everyone from kids to grandparents."
Lets begin the new year with a new found confidence in Him, not comparing our self to anyone. Lets redirect our focus on who knows our name and who knows our hearts!
"I'm not living for applause, I'm already so adored, its all His stage, He knows my name" -Francesca Battistelli
