About Me

Bullhead City, Arizona, United States
I am a 50 yr young disabled woman with many chronic painful physical afflictions & a illness. I am married to a wonderful man with 2 adult children. I grew up in & out of church. One of my Uncles is a recently retired Pastor . I have been saved since 1996. I love serving the Lord & fellow-shipping with my church family,family/friends! I started this blog because I was inspired and encouraged by a couple of friends blogs and felt the Lord prompting me to start a blog page after our Women's Retreat in August 2009 to use the gift of encouragement he has given me to journal what he is doing in my life and to pass on to others articles that encourage me and help me in my walk with the Lord. My prayer is that you will feel the love of Jesus and that you will be inspired and encouraged by my post. I'm just a servant Girl and a Broken Vessel called to be a Heiress of Light for the Lord. The things I post will be from my heart and things that speak to my heart. Sometimes I will just journal about Life,Family etc. My prayer is that my blog will be a source of encouragement to all my friends, family members and followers.

He Knows Me

God laid it upon my heart to post this to all those hardworking people out there who need encouragement today. God Bless You.

He Knows Me
Posted: 11 Oct 2010 10:00 PM PDT

A few weeks ago, I met with my boss. Not my manager, not her manager, but the Big Boss.
My company’s not that big, so I’ve talked with him many times over the past few years. But this meeting was different. I was putting in notice to leave the company.
For about 30 minutes I sat in his office, nodding my head and mmm-hmm-ing, as he lectured me about how to behave in the weeks between giving notice and leaving. He reminded me that my actions in this crucial time would determine how the management team remembered me; in other words, how they would respond if contacted for a reference check.
I understood why he would have these concerns – in general. But with me? Had I done something to make him think I’d slack off during this interim period or badmouth the company while I was still there?
As my husband put it when I told him about the meeting later, Had I acted like that in the previous two and a half years?
After thinking about this meeting for a few days, I realized that my boss’s lecture wasn’t the part that bothered me. It was the fact that he didn’t KNOW me.
  • He didn’t know that I have kept my mouth pretty much shut for more than two years of being less than satisfied with my job.
  • He didn’t know that I take pride in my work, even when it bores me, and I will do my best right up to my last day.
  • He didn’t know that quitting a job to be a stay-at-home mom is completely out of character for me.
  • He didn’t know that I’ve agonized over this decision and desperately wanted a chance to explain.
But those things are understandable. After all, he’s the CEO of an international company. He shouldn’t be bothered with the details of one employee’s exit. Still, I was hurt.
  • He should have known that I did great work while I was at his company.
  • He should have known that I could have done more if only I’d been given the chance.
  • He should have known that I’ve done great things in the past and would jump at the opportunity to do them again.
  • He should have known . . . me.
But he didn’t. And that’s okay. Because after I [finally] calmed down and got over the whole thing, I remembered: God knows me.
Did you catch that? The Creator of the entire universe knows ME. The One who knows all knows ME.
How amazing is that?!
For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful, I know that full well.

Psalm 139:13-14
I don’t need to wave my resume around like a banner. I don’t need to take credit for every project I’ve ever worked on. I don’t need to defend my honor – or, at least, my work ethic – in an exit interview.
God knows who I am. Even if my boss doesn’t.
He knows you, too. He knows you better than your best friend, your husband, your children, your therapist or your priest. He even knows you better than your mom. And He loves you anyway.
No, He loves you BECAUSE He knows you.
The LORD appeared to us in the past, saying:
“I have loved you with an everlasting love;
I have drawn you with loving-kindness.”

Jeremiah 31:3
Have you ever felt like nobody gets you? Do you know that God has known you since the beginning, that He created you, that He loves you with an everlasting love?
And He will never stop sending out just the right people to minister to you.

The Crown that I wear does not tarnish;
It's not made of worldly ores. I don't need to polish and store it in a vault or behind metal doors. The Crown is a gift from my Father whose Son died so that I could be free. What a honor it is just to wear it, For His last thoughts on Earth were of me. The Crown has speacial meaning; It's not about worldly success. It stands for the Love of My Lord and Saviour,Which I wear every day like a Princess.
