God calls us by our name

Here is a beautiful bible passage from Yeshayahu (Isaiah), Chapter 49:1.  Isaiah was called from his mother’s womb Indeed God calls us by our name.  He was called for a purpose to prophesy salvations and consolations.

Can we also say the same that we’ve been called indeed from our mother’s womb?  Do we believe that each one of us has also a purpose in this life?  A purpose that can add meaning to others, to ourselves, and to the rest of creation?

 

Hearken, you islands, to me, and listen closely, you nations, from afar; the Lord called me from the womb, from the innards of my mother He mentioned my name. אשִׁמְע֚וּ אִיִּים֙ אֵלַ֔י וְהַקְשִׁ֥יבוּ לְאֻמִּ֖ים מֵֽרָח֑וֹק יְהֹוָה֙ מִבֶּ֣טֶן קְרָאָ֔נִי מִמְּעֵ֥י אִמִּ֖י הִזְכִּ֥יר שְׁמִֽי:
