Invisible you and that’s the way you feel? Never seen and never heard ~ you just seem to blend in with the wallpaper unless you’ve said or done something wrong according to other’s opinions and then suddenly the invisible stands out in the crowd like headlines on the daily news! Well ~ Beautiful soul, God knows you inside out and who you are matters to Him! He stands in the gap with us through it all, no matter how the world sees us or how friends, acquaintances and onlookers approve or disapprove. Ah yes, He does and He’s got you covered with His sweet grace and awesome, unconditional love! Think of it! Even when you’re dragged through the knot hole of ridicule and rejection His blueprint and stamp of approval is all over you and there you sit with “His” approval ~ and that’s just okay because you’re okay even on a down day! You’re okay even on a bad day, even when you’re broken or when others disappoint and walk away. You’re okay because when it’s all gone wrong God’s love is all over you! His love is all you need! When it’s all gone haywire and you’re either invisible or plastered all over the front page of mistakes, His grace and favor rest on you! When David was in the wilderness of Judah, he reflected and meditated on God’s presence through the night. You see, in the absence of light, God is the light and in the quietness of it, he took time to focus on the true significance of life with the Lord. In Psalm 63: 4 – 8, he pens beautiful words from his heart, “I will praise you as long as I live, lifting up my hands to you in prayer. You satisfy me more than the richest feast, (could we say ‘approval of others’?) (Yeah, we can!!) He goes on to say, “I will praise You with songs of joy. I lie awake thinking of you, meditating on You through the night. Because You are my helper, I sing for joy in the shadow of Your wings. I cling to You; Your strong right hand holds me securely.”
Beautiful you, when cumbersome circumstances, loneliness, rejection, ridicule, fear, anxiety or disappointment have their way with you and drag you into their vice of their night or eye of their storm or grip of darkness, meditate on your divine helper, your God and the God of David! Sing for joy anyway and find protection in the shadow of His wings, secure in His strong right hand, just as David did when the wicked plotted and schemed against him. Yeah, beautiful you, go on then and read Psalm 64 and know that you are indeed in good hands, when the whole world has gone out and plots against you.
