As a mom, wife, woman, do you ever feel forgotten? Like everyone else is out doing the important work and you are just left blending in with the pile of laundry on the couch and the stack of dishes on the counter? Ever have a day of just wanting to escape that blending in? Just wanting to be noticed for something other than meeting a need?
Those days usually hit me out of nowhere. They usually follow a day filled with highs. Then out of nowhere, I am found focusing on myself and my need to be noticed.
Picking up my pen today, I begin to write words of truth.
You see my pain. You see my loneliness. You see my frustration. You see my broken heart. You see my hurt feelings. You see my longing for more in this life. You see my need for rest. You see my need for contentedness.
You see me making ME the center of my world.
Oh, it’s the last line that stops me in my tracks. It happened again. I got stuck in emotions that began and remained with ME at the center. But, that realization leads to a clearing of my heart and mind and the beginning of the Lord’s answer to me.
You see me and You say, “Come to me, all who are weary and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28
You see me and You say, “I am your shepherd, you shall not want.” Psalm 23:1
You see me and You say, “My compassions never fail.” Lamentations 3:22
You see me and You say, “Abide under my shadow. I am your refuge and fortress.” Psalm 91:1-2
You see me and You say, “I will not forget you.” Isaiah 49:15
Let His Word wash over you today. Let Him see you. Let Him fill you. Let Him remind you that you are not forgotten. Let Him remind you that you are His.
