When I first opened a Facebook account I included my maiden name so people I knew growing up, before marriage, could find me. After a long while I extracted my maiden name and left my married name only. Enough people had found me that I knew by mutual friendships online people could figure out who I was without confusion on my Identity.

Have you ever had someone mess up your name? My first name is easy to pronounce and remember, but spelling it, you’d be surprised with how many people try to put an “h” in my name making it, “Nichole”. My daughters name is easy, but long-Alexandra-so all her life people call her Alexandria…no “i”, please. My maiden name was a mouthful of vowels so it was always being mispronounced. Forget about unique names with peculiar spellings!

But there is one who knows your name. He knows you through and through for he tattooed every attribute of your Identity in you. He burned it with in using His Signet ring…

God has marked you as His.
He won’t get your name wrong.

Whatever you face today, you can greet the day with a smile on your face because He’s got you and you belong. ~Nicole
