5.0 out of 5 stars You Are Not Invisible To God, May 13, 2012
This review is from: The God Who Sees You: Look to Him When You Feel Discouraged, Forgotten, or Invisible (Paperback)
"The God Who Sees You" is a book for people who are feeling ignored, invisible, and forgotten by God and others. It helps people to understand that God can see them, just like Hagar shows us when she used the name "El Roi" (The God Who Sees) to describe him. This book shows readers how they can look back and see how good can/has come from their traumatic experiences and how God loves and has a special interest in people that our society sometimes writes off, such as homeless people, orphans, prisoners, and widows.

I am glad that this book pointed out that Jesus understood what it was like to feel ignored, invisible, and forgotten because this is one way that people can relate and feel closer to him when they are feeling this way. I also learned that people can be spiritually deaf, mute, blind, and crippled which can cause them not to see the needs of people that are right in front of their eyes, and that we're probably all guilty of being like this towards others at some point in our lives. Instead we need to have our ears and eyes opened and to notice and take care of people's needs (as we are nudged by the Holy Spirit to do so), and in the Biblical sense to have our hearts softened. There is a story in this book that painted this picture so vividly to me, about a homeless man that the Lord nudged someone to buy lunch for. The story that was described when she decided to be obedient almost blew my socks off.

In general, what this book taught me is that there are so many people who feel unnoticed, unwelcome, and alone. God wants us to pay attention to who is placed before us, which means that we don't need to be everything to everybody. To connect with these people and to love them the way God wants us to is the better choice instead of looking in the other direction. We won't be alone in doing this if we have Jesus in our hearts and our lives. Oftentimes we will be called to do things for others in small, although challenging ways.
