He knows my name...

The greatest desire of mankind is to be known completely, and to be loved not just in spite, but because of who we are...

I was thinking today about the dating process. About how every single person wants to put their best foot forward when entering a possible relationship. The result is that most people put on a show... well maybe that's not the right way to put it. Not that most people lie about who they are, but rather they hide the things in their lives that aren't so pretty so as to seem more appealing.

We are all guilty of packing our dating resume, because there is something inside of us warning that if they only knew...

I think its a beautiful thing to have someone that you can be completely honest with. That you can share the good, the bad, and the ugly with.

Someone who knows your secrets, your heartache, your failures, your past, your dreams, your wishes...

Someone who is constantly in pursuit of knowing you even better than the day before.

Someone who loves you... the imperfections, the flaws,the mistakes, because those less than perfect things are part of what makes you who you are...

Isn't that what we all want anyways? Someone who knows our deepest darkest secrets, who knows our biggest aspirations and loves us... period.

I find it amazing that we serve a God who desires to know us in this way. A God who pursues you in such a passionate and intimate way that He truly knows EVERYTHING about you and STILL loves you.

He knows you've messed up, and while its painful for Him, there is nothing that you can do that can separate you from His love.

Psalm 139:1-4
God, investigate my life; get all the facts firsthand.
I'm an open book to you;
even from a distance, you know what I'm thinking.
You know when I leave and when I get back;
I'm never out of your sight.
You know everything I'm going to say
before I start the first sentence.

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

Isaiah 49:16
I have inscribed you in the palm of my hands...

Luke 12:7
And the very hairs on your head are all numbered...

Galatians 4:9
But now that you know God, or rather have been known by God...


He knows you and He loves you... end of story :)


"I have a Maker
He Formed My Heart
before even time began
my life was in hands
He knows my name
He knows my every thought
He sees each tear that falls
and hears me when I call"

What is Paigerific? I’m glad you asked, although I don’t have an exact definition to offer. Paigerific is my thoughts and my heart. Paigerific is my passion and my fear. Paigerific is my success and my failures. Paigerific is my blood, sweat, and tears. Paigerific is more than just simply word. It’s a million different words all rolled into one. Words like hope, grace, determination, imperfection, love, faith, insecurity… The one word I would use to describe myself? I am Paigerific.
