Am I a God anyone can hide from? Do I not see what happens in secret? Am I not everywhere, filling heaven and earth? -The prophet Jeremiah (23:24)
kids making lousy–even dangerous–choices.
past shame preventing present freedom.
empty arms longing for a child.
a dreaded diagnosis.
chronic pain–physical or emotional.
parenting a child with demanding needs.
_________ you fill in the blank
It’s painful when you’re a Christ-follow and it feels like God doesn’t hear or see or care.
I’ve lived almost half a century and I know I still don’t know much, but I do know the truth of Isaiah 55:
My thoughts and My ways are above and beyond you, just as heaven is far from your reach here on earth.
Even when you can see Him or feel Him, He is still at work. His master-craftsman’s hands are still building His Kingdom and working His purposes in your life–even when you can’t see it.
Hurting mom, He loves you and your child. Disillusioned sister, He’s seeking you. Exhausted brother, He knows your weary heart. Lonely child, He feels your ache. Scared friend, He is your shield. Searching soul, He knows you even if you don’t know Him.
My prayer for you today, dear reader, is that you would know the peace and comfort of the God who sees.
