"You said You’d be there for me, but it seems whenever I needed You most, Your footprints I did not see."
"My precious child, I did what I promised to do -
When you see just one set of footprints, the opposite thing is true. While you were carrying everything else, It was then that I carried you.”
"We need a witness to our lives. There’s a billion people on the planet…I mean, what does any one life really mean? But in a marriage, you’re promising to care about everything. The good things, the bad things, the terrible things, the mundane things - all of it, all the time, every day. You’re saying, ‘Your life will not go unnoticed because I will notice it. Your life will not go unwitnessed because I will be your witness."
- ‘Shall We Dance?’
Have you ever craved being noticed? Have you ever checked the mailbox or phone hoping that someone thought of you? Have you ever worked extremely hard on a project hoping your teacher would notice your great abilities? Have you ever longed for your parents to come to your game or dance recital?
We all want to be noticed, but we don’t have to wait for marriage, or aim to receive recognition from family and friends. God is a witness to every single moment of our lives. Even though most of these moments are uneventful, He cares about them. And when we are in the midst of bad, ugly moments, He is our cheerleader, rooting for us the whole way through.
Your life is not being unnoticed!
Isn’t breaking up the word intimacy so revealing? Intimacy is about unveiling the treasures and beauty of our hearts. It is cherishing another person for all that we’ve seen in their precious heart.
God craves this kind of intimacy with every one of us. He has no problem seeing into our hearts, but He longs for us to see into His. The One who created the shining stars and vast oceans longs for you to see directly into His heart, to have an incredibly intimate relationship with Him!
