He Sees You
Jesus, please take the wheel.
I was on my way to church, gripping the steering wheel as if I was hanging on for dear life. The girls woke up cranky. The oldest refused to wear the outfit I picked out and the littlest pooped all the way up and out of her diaper which caused me to change her outfit not once, but twice. Great start to the day. That frazzled piece of hair that had slipped out of my ponytail just refused to stay out of my face no matter how hard I tried to blow it away.
The whole scene was definitely a “Jesus take the wheel” moment.
It was a rough morning and it wasn’t.even.noon.yet.
Actually it had been a rough week..month..year. The transition of one child to two was a bit more than I had bargained for. I vowed to let John have it when he got back from his business trip. I parked and stared straight ahead.
I just needed a minute.
Taking a deep breath I put the stray hair back in to place, climbed out of the car, and slapped a smile on my face just like the clown we saw at the park the day before. I held my head upright with one little on my hip and the other little hand in hand.
With my painted on smile I was holding back the tears. I dropped the girls off at the kids center and headed to the worship center to find the closest empty seat all the while wondering if anyone really even cared.
Did anyone see me?
Do they just have any clue? Does God see me?
Lord, do you see me?
I may have looked like I had it all together but I didn’t. There were days as a young mom that I didn’t know if I would make it. The pressures of mothering and trying to be the best I could be for my beautiful littles seemed like an enormous task that I wasn’t qualified to handle.
I wanted to matter. I wanted everything that I did at home to count for something.
Most important, I wanted to make a difference.
He Sees You
“Five sparrows are sold for two pennies, aren’t they? Yet not one of them is forgotten by God. Why, even all the hairs on your head have been counted! Stop being afraid. You are worth more than a bunch of sparrows.” Matthew 10:29-31
Oh my sweet friend how He sees you…
He knows the length of every precious hair on your precious little head.
He knows your thoughts, your hurts, your cries.
He sees every tear. Not only does he see them, he bottles them up.
He sees every hurtful word that passes through your ears and makes its way into your heart.
He sees the trauma you went through as a child that still effects you today.
He sees your effort in trying to be the best mother that you can possibly be for the tiny little ones that He has gifted you with.God knows everything about you! #HeSeesYou Click To Tweet
