5 Valentine Promises From God: One

Unknown-1

I have called you by name and you are mine.  Isaiah 43:1

Listening to that voice with great inner attentiveness, I hear at my center words that say: “I have called you by name, from the very beginning.  You are mine and I am yours.  You are my Beloved, on you my favor rests.  I have molded you in the depths of the earth and knitted you together in your mother’s womb. I have carved you in the palms of my hands and hidden you in the shadow of my embrace.  I look at you with infinite tenderness and care for you with a care more intimate than that of a mother for her child.  I have counted every hair on your head and guided you at every step.”

Henry Nouwen
