God Who Sees...



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

Sometimes I feel invisible. 

As a child... and then as a teenager... and, OK, sometimes even as an adult... invisibility seemed sort of cool.  For someone who has often tried to blend in with the walls, it's ironic that it bothers me so much, lately.  I know I've written about this somewhere, recently, but I don't think it was here...  The tension between introversion and extroversion, intrinsic motivation and extrinsic motivation, the need for time alone and the fear that I am talking to myself... and no one else is listening.

I had it out with God pretty well, last night.  It's a good thing God can take it.

But then I was reading about Hagar, and I remembered a quote that I recently read.  It went something like this:

"Remember that some people would give anything for your worst days..."

Yeah...

So here's a short description of God for you... for us... OK, for me... today...

God sees...

There goes my latest attempt at a super power...
