I am in the process of preparing a presentation for a church called “Showing Up!” My mom was recently forwarded the video below of Nicole Johnson. If you’ve attended a Women of Faith conference in the past you have likely been blessed by her talent & her message for Christ.
There are different ways we can feel invisible:
- Sometimes we feel invisible because our disease seems to have taken over the ability for our real personality to shine through.
- Other times, we may feel like whatever we are saying is not heard. “How many times do I have to ask you to pick up your toys so I don’t fall on them?” Or, “Could you please open this jar for me?” (After it’s sat on the counter with a sticky note attached for four days.)
I love my husb& & my son dearly, but I think they both have the gene of selective hearing. My husb& often will reply, “I must not have been in the room” but he was! Sometimes, I will be talking 5 minutes while he is in the same room, & when I say, “Right?” or “So, what do you think?” he will ignore me. Come to discover, he thought I was on the phone talking to someone else!
If you have ever felt invisible & wondered if all that you were doing for a loved one, your family, or even to humor your physician, take a moment to watch this touching video by Nicole Johnson, as she explains that it’s not about the people in our lives who may or may not “see” us, but the God who always sees us, who always knows, who always cares.
