Known, Seen, Loved, Safe

It’s easy to feel invisible in this world. To compare ourselves with others and find us lacking.To feel like the important people in your life don’t see you or your needs or if they do see them, don’t care even a bit about them. We all want desperately to be valued, to be loved, to be noticed, to be understood, to be seen. The problem is that when we feel that way (and we ALL feel that way sometimes)- we tend to look around, instead of up. We look for a savior in other people, in other things, in other places, in anything and everything. When we look to a friend, a spouse, a child, a job, a bank account, social media- we will always, always, ALWAYS come up lacking.

Jeremiah 12:3 says:
“Yet you know me, Lord; you see me and test my thoughts about you.” NIV

When we feel that we are invisible, the good news is that we are seen by God. God doesn’t take His eyes off of us. Ever. He doesn’t miss a single thing that we say, that we do, that we think. He cares about every single thought in our heads and every single care in our hearts. There is NO substitute for Jesus.

If you feel invisible today (or any day), please remember:
  • You, sweet friend, are known. 
  • God never stops thinking of you.
  • He even paints reminders in the sky of His promises to you. 
  • You, sweet friend, are seen. 
  • You did nothing to earn His favor but you have it. 
  • He sees every single ache, every single wound, and every emotion you have. 
  • He sees your pain and wants to hold you through it.
  • You, sweet friend, are loved completely by the God who created you.
  • If God calls out every single star by name, how much more must He know and love you?
  • He knows you perfectly because you are made in His image.
  • He knows every single strand of hair on your head. Every single one. 
  • He loves you so much that He died for you. 
  • You, sweet friend, are safe with God. 
  • There’s not a tear you shed that He doesn’t know about. 
  • His love is the one thing that will never change. Ever. 

My prayer is that when we feel lost and broken and invisible, that we look up to Jesus and no where else. That we are reminded that we are always and forever His child and can rest in His mighty hands.
