I Have Called You by Your Name

The sentiment for today's card is taken from Isaiah 43:1:  " I have called you by your name; You are Mine."

What a lovely and comforting thought! I was reading a devotion this morning which emphasized that God loves us, and not only does He love us, He actually likes us! He enjoys spending time with us--the God of the universe Who was and is and is to come, the Almighty God Whose love and power have no end, actually desires our fellowship and companionship. How humbling and at the same time, beautiful beyond words!

The construction of this card is pretty straightforward. These tools were used:

Sizzix: 17 Labels 660060
Cheery Lynn:  Fanciful Flourish
Stampin' Up:  Pansy Punch (two layers)
Green Raffia Ribbon
Rhinestone Embellishment
Sentiment Printed from My Computer
Brown Ink

Here is the card:

Romans 10:9-11
If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved. NLT 

Acts 13:38-39
"Brothers, listen! We are here to proclaim that through this man Jesus there is forgiveness for your sins. Everyone who believes in him is declared right with God—something the law of Moses could never do." NLT
