If only they understood my interests and what I want my life to be about…
Do you sometimes feel like no one knows you or understands you? Do you feel
as if your family members are so caught up in their own lives that they
don’t really see you or notice when you are struggling? Do you rejoice
alone when good things happen?
If you feel lonely, know that God sees you. If you feel like no one will
spend any real time with you, know that God is there and He understands
you. God knows your secrets. He sees your pain and your celebrations. And
He cares. He grieves your hurts alongside you, and He rejoices with you.
God knows you in ways no human ever could. He created you, and He has been
by your side through all you’ve faced in life.
At least He really knows me…
At least He pays attention to how I’m doing each day…
At least He understands my interests and what I want my life to be about…
He truly cares. He wants to know me. Emily Acker
Do you ever feel unknown? How does it make you feel when you think about
God seeing you and knowing you?
God loves you so much. He knows you completely, and He wants you to know
Him. Because Jesus came to die and rise again, you can have a relationship
with the God who made you. Consider taking a moment to talk to God about
something that matters to youit could be how you’re doing today, or
interested in, or even what you want your life to be about…God invites you
to talk to Him about all of it. He always has the time to listen, and He
God does not want us to be lonely. That’s why He built the churcha
community of people who seek to know and love God and each other. Has
anyone shown God’s love to you when you felt lonely? What did they do? How
could you show God’s love to others who might be lonely?
You have searched me, Lord, and you know me. Psalm 139:1 (NIV)
