We are more than just a Number……

 We are more than just a Number we are people of worth, God knows our name, on the cross it was engraved in the palms of His hands by cruel nails, He Loves us greatly and He showed us that He did.  
 nail pierced hands[1]
Psalm 139:15-17 My frame was not hidden from You when I was made in secret and skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Your eyes saw my substance being yet unformed and in Your book they all were written the days fashioned for me when as yet there were none of them. How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them! (NKJV)
Baby in womb 
 God saw our unformed body being formed in our Mothers womb and He knew if we would have physical or Mental deformities caused by the fall, or not, even as we were being formed but for every defect or weakness, He gives added grace and blesses us in other ways and also gives us strength when needed  to endure and at times to even excel, we are not just a mistake He knows us intimately, He knows our thoughts, our likes and dislikes, our weaknesses and shortcomings, our passions, our joys and heartbreak and even every hair on our heard. Ron says he saves Him time but I tell him his hair just dropped  down to his chest and He counts these.
God knows each persons unique D.N.A and He created the gean that implants hair which is something in which we all share. He knows the days alloted to us too and He plans good days for us now and eternally. God numbers us but not by numerals but by His reckoning, He knows those who are His and thy not only have a name but a face and we will also see Him face to face too and we will know Him by the empowering of The Holy Spirit.
Lamentations 3: 33 For He doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the children of men.
Everything God made in creation was very good including the womb, God does not make junk! and all He does is very good. Regardless of how little we are in the womb, we are still a person of worth in His eyes even if we have  disabilities caused by worldly affliction and He proved we were of great value when Jesus died for us and His plans for us are very good.
Jeremiah 29 :11-12 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.
God has also provided all we would need and if you are reading this even if it is by Screen Reader for the Blind or you can’t hear the Music in my Power points or perhaps you can’t read and write and someone is doing it for you, maybe you are disabled in another way or have been  labelled Mentally ill or Mentally challenged, are you addicted to something or just feel unloved and unwanted, be assured God Loves you greatly and cares and so do I, you are not just a Number, you are valued and appreciated and you are also my priority like all my Blogging friends are when I’m able to Blog and e-mail, so let me know your there or remind me you are.
One of the hardest things I have found to accept is I’m just a number to so many Organisations and also to some people who just want numbers to feel good but don’t want loyalty and friendship, they seem to feel if you stay around great, if you move on then someone else will come along. But I have been very blessed to know those who really do care, who encourage and support and I have  missed our closeness when for whatever reasons some of them no longer Blog, they have moved on, sometimes I want to ask why and often do but then respect their privacy.
globe_symbol_wordpress-172x172[1]WordPress have a new way of resolving our Blog problems, which is more  personal than before, I feel like I’m talking to a real person not just an e-mail. At times I have been upset with frustration as the problems increased but this man has been supportive, patient, and understanding, we are still working through the Technical problems that I’m having which makes Blogging for me very hard at times because Posting is difficult and wastes a lot of my time but I’m much more confident now of a resolution.
I have been blessed by so many I have met Blogging all around the world and I would like to thank you and to also say that I appreciate the quality time we did share or do share on our Blogs, below is a list of  the Bloggers I have been in contact with during the last 2 years for an extended period of time and I’m still Blogging with many of you and visit as often as I’m able and have also been or are blessed by your visits. You are not just a number to me past or present, I don’t know your Destiny but God does and to Him and me you are all people of worth and you have left your  footprints in my heart. 
As God’s Children we are His family and all those who believe in the Name of Jesus which means we accept what His Name means, you are the Body of Christ and my Brothers and Sisters in The Lord whom I Love, which is genuine and heart-felt as The Holy Spirit empowers me.

I would like to thank you and assure you all again and the many others who have clicked on or visited for a short time and who I visited and bloggers who have left a Like and those I’m just getting to know and to all of you who I have not yet met …..
God Loves all of us and we can indeed count on it always and as His Redeemed Children and we have no need to fear Him, yes respect and Worship Him with thankfulness and Trust and obey Him but No fleshy fear, His Love is not for a Season, it never ends.
Christian Love from both of us – Anne

About Freedomborn

I’m very much a People person believing we are all People of worth and unique, so I have much Joy in sharing with people personally and over the Internet. My main focus in life is my wonderful Friendship with Jesus Christ, without Him everything else would be meaningless, I have deep heartfelt thanks and appreciation that I'm a Spiritual Child of The King of Kings and I seek to share with others how truly wonderful that is with the hope they too will realize the same and be set free now.

    Thanks Anne for adding on, I really love that song ‘He knows my name,’ its such a personal one, in as much its what my whole understanding of God and His love for each one of us is. The fact that He cares enough to know my name , blows my mind.



  2. T says:

    This was such a good reminder of how special we all are and by the way you are not just a number with me either. Though I haven’t had a much time to write blogs or read blogs lately I do still think about you and pray for you all the time. I feel so blessed to have met you on the blogs. I do try to catch up with what I have missed while I was away which is what I am doing right now. Thanks for such a lovely post!


    • Thank you T for taking the time, I realise that sometimes Blogging has to take second place but like you I remember you with affection, as my Sister in The Lord, you have touched my heart many times with your honety and willingness to be open about your weaknesses and shortcomings and I have much respect for you in knowing, your heart seeks to Love both God and others and you also show it – Love is an Action.

      You will never be just a number to me T either or more importantly to God, you are His Priceless treasure, always have been and always will be.

      Christian Love Always – Anne.


  3. Love that this was re-posted. Many are blessed by you and blessed to know you whether personally or through your writing. It reminds me of a chorus to a song “He knows My Name”
    The chorus goes like this:
    He knows my name
    He knows my every thought
    He sees each tear that falls
    And He hears me when I call.
    The verses are just as beautiful, but I can’t recall all of them now. When I feel like a number, I repeat this song in my head and it brings comfort and perspective.
    Love ya Anne


    • Thank you Gayle, your words are uplifting and encouraging and I feel blessed you feel that way about me and my heart is touched and I feel much Christian Love for you too.

      Thank you for reminding me about this song it is beautiful, I added it to my Post for you and others to enjoy.

      Christian Love – Anne


  4. Ron says:

    Good you got it back on again Anne, it’s an important message, we are just not a Number, will see you soon.



    • Hi Love, yes I hope Posting will be better in the future, WordPress said it could be cookies, I will contact them later today and hope to hear from them tomorrow, it’s getting late over there.

      Thanks for all your running around over the last few days with taking me to Doctors and to have tests, really enjoyed lunch with you and Nick yesterday, he is a very special young man and like you not just a Number.

      Christian Love Always dear – Anne


  5. Velta Maes says:

    Hi Anne, Dear One,
    I am slowing down so much that I do not post too much. We all have disabilities, some from birth, some from accidents and other things and some from aging. I do not have the physical stamina that I had even last year. I gave up gardening and do not do much around the house anymore.
    My dear husband and daughter and my grandchildren are taking care of all my needs. I am still on the computer and do some knitthing and quilting. I am so grateful for my family and friends.
    God bless you and Ron and all those online who are so encouraging.
    Hugs and kisses
    Gramma Velta


    • Hugs and kisses to you too Gramma Velta, you are special with a very Loving heart and you have often uplifted and encouraged me when I needed it the most, so thank you very much for visiting when you can.

      Yes so True, our bodies are wearing out but The Holy Spirit within us is strong, I probably have much more weaknesses and shortcommings then you have Gramma Velta and make many mistakes but we have deep inner Joy regardless of them, we are not just human we have The seed of God, when we are perfected in Love….How good is that!

      Christian Love Always – Anne (((HUG))) XXX


  6. Marie says:

    I love you across the miles and know I will meet you in heaven, unless God finds a way for me to get to Australia. In the mean time I am delighted that WordPress is helping you. Hang in there!

    Marie @ http://asatisfiedspirit.com


    • Hi Marie, your warm words mean so much to me and they are returned, also I have a guest room and enough extra room for children, you are always welcome, you only need to save for your travelling costs and sightseeing, the rest will be a gift . We will pick you up from the Airport and show you around or you can hire a car to see Queensland in your own time and way but with no accommodation problems.

      Christian Love – Anne


  7. Ron says:

    Thanks Anne for a timely reminder of how much God loves us, and so different from the world ,where we are regarded as a number. I am only recognised by my pension, driving license , internet provided ,all only by a number. As you say with all your blogging friends ,they are all names and special to you, and people with a name. I am so comforted to know that God has my name on His hands, praise God !



    • Hi Love, you are indeed carved in His hands as are all His Children but how many will repent, we all put Jesus on the cross by our sin, do we accept Him or reject Him, our lives will show. I remember the Atheists I shared with, even if you show beyond a doubt God’s reality as I did, they still can’t see, they are in darkness they can’t see Jesus’ light.
      Yes my Blogging friends are very special to me, I have fun with them sometimes and other times it’s serious, I miss Dei and her Grandchildren, perhaps she was finding the time comitment too much.

      Thanks for taking the time to comment, I’m looking forward to our trip tomorrow after

      Church – Love Anne.


  8. teeceecounsel said…Wow! You leave no stone unturned in your dealings. You do all things well. This post is thorough and excellent. Your beautiful combination of words, pictures, sincerity and love, within your posts, is simply unbeatable. You are unique. You are creative. You are divinely endowed with grace, wisdom and truth. With all of these beautiful virtues you posses, you are still so humble and welcoming.I could personally relate with this entire post because it undoubtedly flowed from your heart. People are not just numbers, and you prove it with your examplary life. Despite the computer and internet challenges, you are able to consistently find remedies and compose such powerful presentations.You painstakingly listed blogs that you have maintained interactions with, and if you did not omit me, then it must aswell be impeccable.You inspire me with your heart-warming and examplary personality.You are a blessing to our genration! Thanks for being there. God’s blessings to you, Ron and all your loved ones!

    Freedomborn said…Dear teeceecounsel, thank you again for seeing me through eyes of kindness, I’m very touched by your affirmation. My life has not always been exemplary though, in all honesty it was a mess, and I’m still sorting through the rubble but God gave me a Scripture that remains in my heart and mind ( see below) and He assures me that He has forgiven me and that I’m no longer dead but I’m alive.

    Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
    Thank you teeceecounsel for focusing on the restoration and not the ashes, I thank God for His gifting and all the joy I have found Blogging with you and all the others who bless me as they like you share from their heart and allow me to share freely from mine as we all offer Godly advise and encouragement. Christian Love Always – Grannie Annie.

    teeceecounsel said… ’m glad to know that you are now strong enough to respond to comments. I didn’t want to bother you, Grannie, but I just saw a fresh response. I’m sure that God’s healing hands have granted you rapid recovery. You’ll be absolutely fine soon. Expect the impossible! You can use this time to reflect on both God’s word and on life. Also take out time to rest. Pains will subside and bruises will heal up. We are not just a number, like you rightly pointed out. You mean so much to me! Regards to Ron!

    Freedomborn said…Thank you teeceecounsel for your concern and your very kind and Loveing words, you are also very special to me Son and I think of the unique man you are often and thank God for you. They are surprised no bones were broken, they thought there would be at first and so did I, the pain was very intense, I still have some pain but much less and I can type if I rest as well. I will Post tomorrow and thank everyone. Take care and remember you are not just a Number to God or to us.

    Christian Love Always from both of us – Grannie Annie


  9. Island Traveler said… Blogging is like life in a way. We meet obstacles and trials on the way but we reach down for the much needed faith and we move on stronger than ever. You are a blessing to the blogging world and I hope you continue to head on with God’s light and love in you no matter what. The internet has so many evila and dark corners but so is love and goodness. It’s a constant battle which together, we can win.

    Freedomborn said… With God Island Traveler nothing is impossiable and those who put Him and us down are the loosers, we show we Love God by Loving others and as I said before dear Island Traveler you do just that, I’m proud to call you my Brother in The Lord and thank God for you and I always look forward to Blogging with you as many others do. I had something exciting happen today Peter a disabled friend of mine accepted Jesus as his Lord and Saviour, he asked me to show him how. Peter was brought back to life 7 times after the accident that left him disabled, he was about 30 at the time he is 40 now. Christian Love – Anne


  10. Pastor Bryan Lowe said…Oh my. I see a lot of kindness woven through each post. I see kindness and a very certain gentleness. You have a definite place among the best of them.

    Freedomborn said…Thank you Pastor Bryan, thank you again for your kindness with the Pingback. I believe all God’s redeemed children including those who are disabled by whatever affliction are among the best of them and You Too Sir…

    1 Peter 2:9-10 But ye are a chosen Generation, a Royal Priesthood, an Holy Nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of Him who hath called you out of darkness into His marvellous light; Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.

    I also find you a very Loving man Pastor Bryan, my heart was touched by your messages on your Blog. I found this was True of a lot of the people I met in Hospital, some who are very Loving and caring friends today, that I thank God for. Some Patients I met who were diagnosed as mentally ill, had a physical condition like me but many were victims of abuse and their minds could not cope with the reality they had endured or still were, including stigmatism. I will share more with you about this another time.

    Thank you again Pastor Bryan and I look forward to visiting you again.

    Christian Love from both of us – Anne.


  11. livinginobscurity said… Honored and blessed to know you!

    Freedomborn said…It is me Gayle who has much to be thankful for in your friendship, your kindness in your words heal the hurt that I have felt when others have shown I’m just a number. Yes we all like to know people are responding to our Posts but is it for an added number or a person of worth. From the start that is how you made me feel, I was NOT JUST A NUMBER. You have very much touched my heart with your Honesty and openess, your life wisdom and knowelage, your willingness to seek God not man for understanding and your desire to share both your life and heart with me and others. – THANK YOU – Christian Love Always – Anne

    triciajots4jesus said… This heartfelt post is a blessing. How wonderful that God loves us no matter what! May He continue to bless and use you. – Tricia

    Freedomborn said…Thank you Tricia for your encouregment,, I must have been visiting your Blog when you were visiting mine. I often find your Links helpful and enjoy meeting old and new Blogging friends. I was going to follow your link just now but heard the mail arrive in my Inbox, and guess who was there but WordPress didn’t tell me you have joined up with us, I found out by my Stats. Christian Love – Anne


  12. Reality Of Christ said …Thank you for not seeing us as ‘just a number.’ 🙂 I was blessed by your post. And I’m also blessed by you and your blogging as well. Thanks for including me in your list. And may we add your names to the list also!! 🙂

    Thank you Elisa, you also bless me greatly, I may not always comment but I always enjoy your messages, they have so much meat. Thank you for wanting my name included, I do feel very Loved, perhaps it is why I Love others so much, everyone is important, God tells us so, we were all made in His likeness. Christian Love – Anne
