Finding Acceptance, Love, and Worth
Redman helps women find their true worth in the eyes of the Father who knows their names.
In a society that defines worth by material possessions, professional success, and physical beauty, it is often difficult to feel worthy of God’s love and forgiveness. Sometimes, those who are closest to us, even parents and siblings, can deeply damage our hearts by rejecting the person God has created us to be in Him. God Knows My Name: Never Forgotten, Forever Loved is Beth Redman’s confident declaration that believers do not have to bow beneath these feelings of rejection and worthlessness.
Redman readily recognizes that no matter how good and whole we are, there are days when we all feel misunderstood, blamed, forgotten, and rejected. She wants readers to recognize these feelings for what they truly are—the enemy’s attempt to make us feel anonymous, illegitimate, and unfit to be recognized by our Heavenly Father. In the face of the world’s damaging message, Redman boldly declares that if we are God’s child, He has lovingly called us and chosen us for His glory. God bestows great worth and significance upon His children, and it is within His grace alone we will find meaning and purpose.

God Knows My Name is a gentle reminder about how much we are loved. We are treasured by our loving Heavenly Father, even beyond our ability to understand or comprehend. Beth Redman takes us on a journey to discover just how much God wants to have a personal relationship with us.
This book is a quick and easy read, and it was almost like having coffee with a friend. It actually reminds me of having a chat with a best friend who encourages and cheers us on ... to keep going, reach for the prize, and never give up. Beth Redman stresses the importance of a daily relationship with God, even when we think He doesn't care. I love the subtitle of this book - "Never Forgotten, Forever Loved".
There is so much wisdom packed into this little book, and I really enjoyed reading it.
