13 And she called the name of the Lord that spake unto her, Thou God seest me: for she said, Have I also here looked after him that seeth me?
I am feeling such a strong yearning to write! My life has been nothing less than chaotic the last month as we have packed, moved, cleaned, unpacked, picked the piecework of our home being built and dealt with other life surprises along the way. In the midst of these life changes I have felt lost, isolated and alone at times. A side effect of busyness for me almost always seems to be a disconnection, even if slight, from the habits that stabilize and renew me. In this disconnection, coming from my end, I feel myself drifting a little and my heart yearns for the anchor I need so desperately.
I heard a song this week that shook me to my core. I felt my spirit reawaken and my yearning deepen for a shift and reconnection. It is so interesting to me how when we go through turbulent times, big changes, or even just an increase in life’s demands we tend to drift from the source that can soothe our spirits and heal our hearts. We feel like we are in a wilderness or a desert, dry and parched and desperate for the living water that can revive us. It is in these places that we can most appreciate the revitalization and renewal that only that spring of water can bring to our lives, if we choose to turn to it. But we must take the time to seek and to drink. This song truly reminded me that we have a God that sees us in every circumstance of our lives and desires more than anything to not only be involved in the details, but also to comfort, lift and strengthen us. I am so very grateful for the God who sees… me!!!
The song is on the long side, but it so powerfully melds bible stories with music. I promise if you take the time to listen to it, you will not be sorry! Here are a few of the words that have infiltrated my mind and heart this week…
The God Who Sees by Kathie Lee Gifford & Nicole C. Mullen
Then He speaks in gentle whispers And He softly calls her name She feels His arms enfold her As He holds her And she’ll never be the same ‘Cause I’m the God who never changes And My promises are true And when this world deserts you This is what I’ll do
And I will be a ring of fire around you And I will be the glory in your midst And the power of My presence Will bring you to your knees Then I will lift you up again For I’m the God who sees
Sees you in your wilderness Sees you in your brokenness When you’re feeling lonely, I’m the God who sees In the desert places, in your empty spaces I’m the God who sees I’m nearer than you dare believe Here in the very air you breathe I’m the God who sees… You
