35 In Weekend Whispers

The Weekend Brew: He Sees Me

She gave this name to the Lord who spoke to her: “You are the God who sees me, ” for she said, “I have now see the One who sees me.”  (Genesis 16:13)

He is El Roi, the God who sees.  

This scripture is a constant reminder that God cares for me and that I have His attention.  In my humanness, I often feel alone.  I could be surrounded by people, and still feel as if I am the only one in the room.  I wish I didn’t have to contend with these feelings, but I am still working through some things.  I am thankful for God’s grace extended to me as I work out this part of my faith.  This is a beautiful reminder that God sees me, and that is really all that matters.

I would love for you to join me for Fresh Brewed Sundays.  This is where we share a scripture with just simple insight.  No heavy words necessary.  Feel free to use the button in your post and link up below!

    I’ve always loved this passage. I didn’t get a chance to tell you how much your post meant to me earlier this week when you shared about your life as a child and teen. Your testimony of God’s love and grace really blessed me.

      Thank you Elizabeth. That means so much to me. I’ve never shared so personally on my blog before, other than the season where we lost our home. There is so much more to the story. But I do know that God gave me the grace to share that portion. So thankful my words and my testimony blessed you.

    I can really identify with what you say here…. I was just asking the Lord about this today (feeling alone in a room full of others). Encouraging and uplifting. Love this photo too. Beautiful! – Pam http://wordglow.wordpress.com

    I’m grateful that He knows us better than we even know ourselves. We capture His gaze and He delights in us! You are precious to Him Barbie. <3

      Ahh, that I capture His gaze. Still so hard to comprehend. But I will be resting in this truth today.

    Barbie – Was just sharing with my husband about how I feel like no one “sees me”. (Yes, a little self pity party on my part :/) And then to find your post. “God sees!” Oh, how it stirred my soul. And it is enough…even if the world passes you by….God seeing is not only what He does, but who He is! El Roi! What a redeeming & refreshing thought, my friend! God timing post, for sure~! Blessings, jen

      Oh Jen, I’ve been there (and some days still am). Sometimes my heart screames for acknowledgement, but God whispers, “I’m right here.” So thankful you were blessed today.

    What a delight to find you…and to be reminded that He sees….it’s so easy to feel lost in all of it. Remembering that He sees, and knows our name makes all the difference…bless you.
    God’s peace and good.
