“‘I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the LORD, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future’” Jeremiah 29:11.

When my daughter Caroline was young she wanted a Maltese but I knew we were not going to spend the amount of money of those dogs. I searched the paper and found a woman who had advertised that she had a three year old Maltese for sale, only $100.00. The rest were puppies that cost $400. I went to her house and upon entering fell in love with these beautiful white haired vivacious puppies. When I asked her to point out ours she glanced over to the corner of the room. There was this little dirty shivering dog who wouldn’t make eye contact with me…Gerdie was her name and shame looked to be her game. The woman explained that she was a rescue dog from a previous abusive owner. I lifted her little face towards mine, held and caressed her broken boy, and her gentle spirit won me over. Caroline was ecstatic and loved her at first sight, renaming her Annie. Caroline came down the steps the following morning shuffling in her sleeping bag with Annie in her arms. Both of their heads were covered with unruly and out of control white hair, both sets of eyes carrying a gentle spirit. Every day after that they were inseparable and there was no doubt that Annie belonged to a new master …renamed and reclaimed.

When we finally meet the eyes of a new Master, He tenderly cares for us and faithfully loves us no matter what our past held. He takes His gentle hand and lifts our face to Him. He renames us as one of His children, and brings us into His family. We are reclaimed where we have previously been depressed and rejected. The more time we spend with our new Master the more we begin to take on His character, His attributes and desires. We become like Annie as we once and for all open our hearts to the only One who will be tender with His touch and eternal with His love.

Rejoice this morning that you are renamed and reclaimed.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
