I have been striving to be SEEN and HEARD for most of my life,
because I never felt SEEN or HEARD.
Therefore I took that to mean that
I was insignificant, insecure, and unacceptable.
So what is a child to do?
Oh do the dance of performance,
because you believe that if you dance perfectly then you will be SEEN and HEARD.
But oh how exhausting that is
when you are striving to get what you want
yet you don’t get it,
you just strive harder and harder and harder
until you go splat.
And then you are left with yourself
with no more striving left.
But then you have no choice
that turns into the best choice
to LOOK UP
because there is no where else to look when you are on the ground
"I lift up my eyes to the mountains—where does my help come from?
My help comes from the LORD the MAKER of heaven and earth" (Psalm 121:1-2)
Oh it just takes a split second to take your eyes off yourself
IT'S NOT ABOUT ME
then you make it all about
THE HIM who not only SEES & HEARS you, .
but lifts you up
off the ground
that is so supernatural
that it feels as if you are flying~
because when there is nothing left of you
it is all about HIM~
"those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint" (Isaiah 40:31).
Oh I don't ever want my eyes to be so fixed on me
that I forget about HIM,
but I know I will
because I am way too human
and GOD knows that
because HE made this human human
and you too,
yet HE never gives up on us
because who gives up on someone HE created?
Oh just look up because
HE is looking at you
no matter how
human you may be
feeling, being, or doing
no matter how humanly reckless
we may get
when we make it all about ourself
HE finds us
