To Be Truly Known

Been thinking about how each individual fits into this puzzle we call life.  Lately I have felt out of sorts and wondering if I am noticed for me or only for my contributions.  In the midst of the plethora and mass of humanity would anyone be able to pick me out of the crowd?  Would they know it was me? 

If I were a single tear that fell from the skies into the oceans deep, 
would You...know it was me?

If I were a single grain of sand laying upon an endless beach, 
would You...know it was me?

If I were a single shining star amidst the vastness of the milky way,
would You...know it was me?

If I were a single word unspoken within the minds of humankind, 
would You...know it was me?

The above was originally posted on my blog in March 2011 asking the question about being truly known by God.  I rest assured that God knows me (emphasis below added) -

Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.  For I am the LORD, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior -Isaiah 43:1-3

...but if anyone loves God, he is known by Him. -1 Corinthians 8:3
But now that you have come to know God, or rather to be known by God -Galatians 4:9
I rest in this assurance of a God that knows me even when all else around me seems dark, makes no sense and others seem distant.  I simply chose to believe.  Do you?
