Lord Do You See?

Welcome to Friday Friends with Jamie Britt. I met Jamie several months ago and have been amazed at her tenacity in spite of her difficulties. 

Then she called the name of the Lord who spoke to her, You-Are-the-God-Who-Sees; for she said, “Have I also here seen Him who sees me?” (Genesis 16:13, NKJV)

I titled this post with a question that I'm sure we've all asked. I know I did this weekend. My plans to see a dear friend had fallen through, and I was (and still am at times) wrestling with questions in my mind. "Lord why isn't this happening?" "This is the third time this has been canceled, why Lord?" Ladies, I felt as if I was all alone. I felt like God wasn't anywhere I turned. But the reminder of a dear friend once again reminded me that He is there. He is El Roy. He is the God who sees. He sees my frustration. He sees my disappointment. He sees my pain. Are you in a place where you feel God isn't anywhere in your circumstances? Ladies, He's right there. He knows what you're going through, and He cares. Let me encourage you, call out to Him. Tell him you're hurting, after all He's been there. He's struggled with disappointment. He's struggled with pain. He's struggled with everything that we as humans struggle with. So, call out to El Roy. He sees you, and He'll see you through your storm of despair.

Dear Lord, thank You for being El Roy. Thank You Lord that even when we don't feel you near, You've never left us. You've never left our side. I pray for each of my readers. Give them the comfort that You so long for them to have. Lord we love You and we praise You. Amen.

Have your call out to your Lord in the mist of your difficulties lately? Jamie has been blind since birth. Yet, she has become an overcomer in the truest sense. Knowing about her struggles brings an instant richness and depth to her writing that wasn’t there before. How does she know when she has never seen? I hope Jamie will inspire you to face and overcome the difficulties in your life.
