According to Cottrell, God's goodness is predictable. His mercy is dependable. His ability to work in every moment of every reader's life, leading them to him, is unfailing. But often in those moments, even the most devout are distracted by great distress, failing to see or acknowledge God's presence and provision. Cottrell reminds readers that God is the hope, strength and deliverance we desperately need. In every circumstance, especially those moments when we least expect it, God's voice can be heard and his presence discerned. He Knows Your Name is a beautiful, 2-color gift book sure to be treasured.

Published by Worthy Publishing 155 pages hard back Introduction by Beth Moore If you recognise the name Travis Cottrell, that isn't surprising, he is a noted singer and songwriter, and now he is a published author. This book is an easy read, doesn't take a lot of time, but it is full of stories and and each chapter is ended with a special prayer. It is the kind of book you'll want to pick up and reread a chapter, or just one of the prayers. It would also be a wonderful gift for that 'new Christian', who is just now learning to walk in Christ. One of my favorite prayers is on page 57, so I am going to print it here. Father, Thank You for knowing my name and exactly where I am at in my life. I know that every good and perfect gift comes from Your hand. Help me to accept all of the surprises You bring my way, knowing that You, in turn, are never surprised by what happens in my life. I am so thankful I can trust in You, Amen Isn't that a beautiful and simple prayer! The whole book is filled with this kind of wisdom. I was given a copy of this book to read and review. No other compensation was given. I am not required to give a favorable review, and all opinions expressed here are my own.
This little book packs a lot of inspiration, power and challenge. Beth Moore gives a moving introduction, but Travis Cottrell's message is no less inspiring. When someone knows and calls you by name it tells you ... you have been acknowledged ... you are somebody, not just a number ... you have been remembered ... you matter. His theme is built around the comforting thought that God knows each one of us by name, and what that means to us personally. In ten meditative chapters, Travis encourages us to put ourselves in a place where we can hear God call us by name. Each chapter reflects on a particular aspect of worship; for example, joy, hope, heal, abandon, comfort, and surrender. This quote from the chapter on hope stood out to me: "Even when our uncertainty is not resolved as we'd like, even when we must face the tragedy we feared, holding to our faith will eventually lead us to a moment when God's presence returns. . . . That is when we can take all the pain and sorrow and offer it up to God. And that is when worship becomes the most beautiful." He Knows Your Name contains questions for personal reflection and would be a great resource for quiet times or meditations. I was surprised at the depth of this short book and I highly recommend it. This book was provided by Worthy Publishing in exchange for my honest review.
