I am so proud of my young daughter, as she works so diligently every day on her overload of homework. She is self-motivated and strives to do her best, and it is paying off. She is an excellent student.
So, though she may be a little embarrassed to see that I am literally telling the whole world, I just want her to know that – I SEE YOU. I notice how hard you are working, and not only am I extremely proud of you, but I appreciate it, too.
I am so proud of all of my children, as they are working toward building a good life for themselves and their families.
Just as children love it when their earthly parents notice them and acknowledge their efforts, so do we as children of God love it and find strength and resolve when our Heavenly Father notices us. Life gets a little overwhelming and it seems like for all our working and striving, circumstances become somewhat out of hand and we wonder if it all really matters. We look up and wonder, “God, do you see me?”.
Let me tell you, most assuredly: Yes, He sees you! He smiles when you smile, laughs at your silliness, nods in delight when you move in the right direction, and leans in when things are going tough while He gently guides and comforts you. He takes pleasure in His creation, and that includes you, my friend.
“O praise the Lord, all ye nations: praise him, all ye people.
For his merciful kindness is great toward us: and the truth of the Lord endureth for ever. Praise ye the Lord.” Psalm 117
“I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
He will not let your foot slip—
he who watches over you will not slumber;
indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.
The Lord watches over you—
the Lord is your shade at your right hand;
the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.
The Lord will keep you from all harm—
he will watch over your life;
the Lord will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore.” Psalm 121
So, my prayer for you is that God will reveal to you in big and small ways, that He loves you, and He does indeed see you.
