I know, precious heart, as the months and years roll by and everyone else has moved forward and moved on, it’s easy to feel like no one sees your wounds, no one takes note of your sorrow, no one remembers your pain.
It can make you feel invisible.
You feel like a black and white pasteboard cutout in a world peopled by technicolor action figures.
But you are NOT invisible.
The God of the Universe sees you.
He keeps track of every. single. tear.
Even if you are still angry with Him.
Because His love is an everlasting love. He doesn’t give up on us just because we don’t have the strength to reach out to Him. He will bridge the gap between what we are capable of doing and what needs to be done.
Sit silent in His Presence and He will come to you.
Gentle, loving, quiet and peace-filled He will come.
No matter how many humans have written you off, your Faithful Father has not forgotten you.
He sees you.
He waits with open arms.
He wants to embrace your wounded heart and your broken life.
Come home. ❤
God is the father who watches and waits for his children, runs out to meet them, embraces them, pleads with them, begs and urges them to come home.
~Henri Nouwen, The Return of the Prodigal
