#MusicMonday ‘He Knows My Name’ By Francesca Battistelli #Identity #Confidence

It’s not a secret. I’d like to see my name in lights. Heck, I like to see my name in text message.

I’m human. I thrive on acknowledgement and approval.

If I’m being honest, I often catch myself caring more about what people think than what God thinks. I’m sorry God. I’m working on it. I’m just so much more used to the way humans show their approval… e.g. name in lights.

This goes back to the Christian concept of finding one’s identity in Christ. Truly being overjoyed with the simple fact that I have become a child of God, through Christ Jesus’ death.

I’m eternally royal. What could trump that?

What I love about this song is the reminder that we are “famous” in Our Father’s eyes. He knows every single little thing about us. Not even the uber-est of uber-fans will ever know that about their favorite celebrity.

But God does. He’s madly in love with each of us. And just because I can’t really understand that, it doesn’t make it any less true.

We are famous to Him in a way our puny brains can’t even comprehend.

LYRICS: “He Knows My Name”

Spent today in a conversation
In the mirror face to face with
somebody less than perfect
I wouldn’t choose me first if
I was looking for a champion
In fact I’d understand if
You picked everyone before me
But that’s just not my story
True to who You are
You saw my heart
and made
Something out of nothing

I don’t need my name in lights
I’m famous in my Father’s eyes
Make no mistake
He knows my name
I’m not living for applause
I’m already so adored
It’s all His stage
He knows my name oh, oh,
He knows my name oh, oh

I’m not meant to just stay quiet
I’m meant to be a lion
I’ll roar beyond a song
With every moment that I’ve got
True to who You are
You saw my heart
and made
Something out of nothing


He calls me chosen, free forgiven, wanted, child of the King,
His forever, held in treasure…
I am loved

I don’t need my name in lights…
I’m famous in my Father’s eyes…
