I have been reading this wonderful book by Tammy Maltby called The God Who Sees You: Look to Him When You Feel Discouraged, Forgotten, or Invisible and I just wanted to share a little passage from it. I think that everyone should run and get this book! I am really loving the down time at work when I am waiting on the floor to dry or just taking a breather and sit down to see how God Sees ME!
This is crucial to remember: There is nothing you can do to change the way God sees you! Nothing you can do to make Him love you any less.
When you rebel, when you forget Him, when you get lost or fail—He doesn’t stop desiring you or delighting in you.
But that doesn’t mean the God who delights in you is blinded by love. Because the God who sees you, the God who delights in you, also sees you just the way you are!!
How awesome is that!?! God loves us, delights in us even when we mess up, He made us and knows who we are and sees us for who we are! We need to stop looking to man to see us that way and to praise our Father for being like that! I love the God who sees me!!!
Here’s some more little snippets from this amazing book.
Gently and with grace, God is constantly in the process of positioning you where you need to be.
But you can be be confident that when God looks at you, He sees you dancing beyond your circumstances whatever they are—living the life He has already prepared for you. He will put you where you need to be… if you pay attention & obey His call.
If you keep your focus on God, He will put you exactly where you need to be. But even if you lose focus, if you’re disobedient and lose your way, you can turn back to Him and still trust Him to use all your pain and mistakes to put you where you need to be.
God loves you!
Can a mother forget the baby at her breast and have no compassion on the child she has borne? Though she may forget, I will not forget you!
See I have engraved you on the palms of my hands; your walls are ever before me. ~Isaiah 49:15-16
This is a definite must read! I was not paid to ‘promote’ this book but it has touched me so much and I am only on chapter four!! I just wanted to share this with everyone and pray that you will understand The God Who Sees You!Pin It
