Remembering Who calls our names

"To remember who creates us and recreates us, who calls us again and again, who knows us completely, and who loves us unconditionally is to be prepared, as Jesus was, for all that is to come. We need have no fear of today or anxiety about tomorrow. We belong to God who claims us as beloved children and holds us close to the embrace of strength and love. Listen and remember today that God calls your name and be transformed and sustained in all that awaits you."  Reuben Job

And in this spirit, the following prayer really speaks to my daily life: "Loving Lord, in the struggles that I face, help me always to find the right way, or, having lost it, to come back to you.  Only your grace and love can accomplish this. Only in that way do I know blessedness and peace of heart."
