Normally I don’t post on Sunday’s but I thought I would try something new. I’m thinking of all the mamas who have been up late, (maybe you are up in the middle of the night right now), and I’m thinking of those who weren’t able to attend church for a Sunday or two. This post is for you. God knows and sees you.
She answered God by name, praying to the God who spoke to her, “You’re the God who sees me! Yes! He saw me, and then I saw him.” That’s how that desert spring got named “God-Alive-Sees-Me-Spring.” Genesis 16:13-14.
The moment the world begins to orbit around our precious babes, we begin to feel invisible. Does anyone care that we budget the checkbook, run errands, sweep the floors, wipe up crumbs, and change the millionth diaper today? Our culture has moved away from family values and somehow has forgotten that mother’s are the hands that make the world go round. But, there is One who sees us. He loves all that we do. He cares about you folding socks and changing diapers. He sees all that you do and he is proud of you. He rejoices over your smile and is burdened by your sadness, you are not invisible to God.
- Read and reflect on Genesis 16:1-14.
- Mama Prayers: Lord what a blessing it is to know that when I feel invisible, I am not invisible to you. You see all that I do, nothing gets past you. Lord help me to see you as the God who sees me.
