I wander around this world; going through the motions, wondering if I am seen. Sometimes it feels as if a veil is over my eyes and no one can see me. I feel like a person vanishing into the background. These feelings are feelings that come in as the enemy tries to make me feel like I am not seen. But the truth is that God sees me and God sees you too friends.
Lately God has been imprinting that promise into my heart and my soul. Just the other day, a fellow blogger tweeted to me and a few other bloggers “You are seen by the One who formed you.” It came in the midst of my day but it totally put a smile on my face. Those words bring such comfort.
Then today I got an email as part of Jolene Underwood’s #RiseUpWriters and in her email, Jolene kept putting my name in the body of the email. Every time I read my name as she wrote about God calling us etc. Those words again reminded me that I am seen.
Yes, there are indeed times when life gets in the way and we compare ourselves to those around us. Or let’s be honest….we compare ourselves to those around us MOST of the time, don’t we? We think we aren’t good enough. She is much prettier than I am. She keeps a cleaner house than I do. She has a bigger house than I do. Those words are words that hurt us as we think we are not seen. Those words put a shroud over the reality that we are seen by God. The truth is that we are precious sons and daughters of the one true king!
But there are times when the enemy fights his way in and traps us in the lies that we arent important, that we aren’t seen. Yet it is during those times when God wants us to know that God sees us. God sees us most when we think he doesn’t see us at all. God knows every desires of our hearts.
The promise that I am seen gives me such comfort. It is a promise that I want to cling to always and I want God to continue to speak to my heart and soul always reminding me that I am seen; always reminding you that you are seen too! We are all seen by the One who formed us.
God sees ME!
God sees YOU!!
