El Roi: The God Who Sees Me

Have you ever gone through a period in your life where everything just seemed topsy turvy?

Situations at your job are a mess.

Finances are a HOT mess.

Marriage is a mess.

And PLEASE don’t mention the kids! Whose kids ARE these?!?

Or maybe you are currently suffering repercussions from a situation that was simply not your fault..such as someone stealing something from you, false accusations, or, God forbid, someone had taken advantage of you in some way.

All of these situations can leave you feeling hopeless, helpless, in despair, rejected, and sometimes like a failure.

You’ve cried, prayed, cried some more, sought the Lord, and still no relief.

During these times, I have often wondered if He heard me. I have asked, “God, do you see this? Do you see what’s happening? I NEED YOU!!”

Take heart, God has put you in a position to get to know him as El Roi, the God who sees you!

No Greater Love

As Good Friday and Easter approach, I often reflect upon the meaning of the holidays.  Every time I ponder the true meaning of the cross, I am in total awe, and often speechless.

How could someone love me so much that He would leave a Holy place, enter a sinful world, and willingly take my place on the cross?

No greater love exists!

You Still Have Worth

Sometimes when we make mistakes, we feel like there is no coming back from this. We feel that the mistake was too weighty, and there is no redemption.

Sometimes we feel like God or others will never forgive us for what we have done.

Sometimes…we feel like because of the mistakes that we have made, we have lost our worth as a parent, spouse, and child of God.

When we ask God for forgiveness through Jesus, all of heaven rejoices, BECAUSE YOU STILL HAVE WORTH.

We Are Giant Slayers!

My oldest son plays little league football. Last year, he was on the team that won the championship title…sort of like the “super bowl” of little league. He played for the Falcons.

It was a very memorable season. There was one game in particular that made a very lasting impression on all of us.

My son’s team was scheduled to play the Steelers. At some point during the season, we had seen them in action. One thing is for sure.. these boys were HUGE.

I mean.. they were REALLY HUGE. I literally was not convinced that they were even the same age or should be in the same league. I wanted to demand to see some birth certificates for some of these boys! I digress..

Overall, the boys that played for the Falcons were smaller in stature. Naturally, they were a little intimidated.

My son said, “Momma, they are so big!” I told him not to let that affect him. Their size doesn’t take away from his talents. “Keep blocking the same way you always block, play like you always play. Don’t let that intimidate you, son,” I said to him.

I can’t remember who scored first. But I do remember, when the Falcons scored, it caught the Steelers off guard. They weren’t expecting it. Of course, the Falcons won.

In the story of David and Goliath, we found a very similar scenario. This story can by found in 1 Samuel 17.

Stay Focused

No matter what you are going through, 

No matter how the winds and waves are raging, 

No matter how impossible it may seem, 

No matter how scary it gets,

No matter how ugly it gets, 

Keep your eyes on Him.  Keep walking toward him.  Keep letting Him lead you.   And you won't sink.

Stay focused.
