She’s a year old and at times, waiting can be most difficult. Like when she’s on a ride in the car and wanting to get out of her car seat. Or when bedtime is soon but not yet.
So we hand her Poppy’s cell phone because, truly, it always keeps her busy for those last few minutes. She cannot unlock it but it has that center home button and that is all she needs.
The other night was a cell phone night and she held the home button just long enough for Siri to be activated. So I said, “Siri, call Eliza.”
The baby did not react to my mention of her name. However, when Siri responded, “There is no Eliza in your contacts”, she laughed, smiled, and could not contain her excitement.
The mention of her name was all it took for her to be overwhelmed with delight.
Her reaction brought to mind a Scripture which has filled my heart with awe since first discovering it years ago:
“But now, thus says the Lord, who created you, O Jacob, And He who formed you, O Israel: “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name; You are Mine.” (Isaiah 43:1, NKJV)
The baby’s reaction to her name has caused me to turn to read this verse every day for over a week and thoughts began to form.
I hope you will join me at Woman to Woman Ministries HERE as I share three thoughts from Isaiah 43:1.
