Five Minute Friday: See

It's Five Minute Friday when I link up with The Gypsy Mama. We are given a one word writing prompt and get to write for five minutes flat. Our word for this week is: SEE.

Look at me.  I have something to tell you.  That is what I hear every day as I work with a classroom filled with three and four year old children.  There are times when I've had a child touch my face with their hands to turn my face towards them. They want the attention as they have something to say.  See me!

There are times in my own life when I pray and pray but feel like I'm not receiving answers.  For a moment I wonder you hear me Lord?

I've been reading the Bible in one year on an app I loaded to my Kindle. In Genesis 16, there is an account of Hagar.  Abraham had a son with her when his wife Sarah seemed to be unable to conceive.  Of course, it was another example of not waiting on God's perfect timing.  But Hagar was forced to leave with her son Ismael as Sarah wasn't happy with their treatment of her son Isaac.  That's the story in a nutshell.  But what stood out to me was that God saw Hagar and her son and knew what was happening. He provided for them.  He is El Roi; the God who sees.

What a beautiful reminder for me.  He sees me.  He knows all that is going on in my life.

As I returned to work after a two week break, I was walking from the parking lot to our classroom. I suddenly heard a voice yell out "Miss Debbie".  I looked up to see the head of four year old Hilton sticking out of the back window of her mom's car.  I yelled "Happy New Year" back to her.  But I had to laugh.  God sees me and knew just what I needed to start my day.  :)


Blessings and love,

You truly expressed the heart of a child, "See me - watch me." So sweet. And just like children we do want our Father to notice us and see us as well. I'm thankful that He knows us so intimately that He counts the hairs on our head.

Happy 5MF.

Love your thoughts here. All soo true. Like kids who LIVE to be seen, heard, acknowledged, and loved we are soo blessed that our God gets this too with his children and is always there for us! Enjoy your week-end Deb!

What lessons children teach us! Their hearts that do not know hypocrisy. Their hearts that do not see unfair treatments and always ready to not notice offenses. No wonder...Jesus loves them and wants us to have a "childlike faith." We don't even have to try so hard...for He loves us no matter what. Thank you for this beautiful reminder that we are loved first and He sees us. Have a great weekend ahead sister.

Great thoughts...I have a sweet daughter that used to turn my face to her when she was little. What a wonderful reminder to go to the Heavenly Father as a little child. Have a wonderful day!

That same story has jumped out at me recently also. Yes, he knows just what we need. I was having a pity party and then looked down at my phone and a video had been sent. The voice on the video was my grandson and the rest of my day was wonderful God saw me and He lifted me up.
Yes, He sees!!!

I love that God sees us...even when we are feeling lonely and even invisible, we can count on Him! He sees straight to our hearts!

Blessings, Joan

I am so glad that God sees us, and knows us, and loves us! What a foundation is ours because we know who He is.

Have a great weekend Debbie.

I am happy that God sees me too and everything with his loving eyes:)
