The God who sees

And He said, Hagar, Sarais maid whence camest thou? and whither wilt thou go?
                                                                                                     
                                                                                                  Genesis 16:8a

And she called the name of the Lord that spake unto her, Thou
God seest me...                                                                      
                                                                                                  Genesis 16;13

                                                                                     
   

                                          He is the God who sees!



I was very encouraged while reading this passage this week. A wonderful reminder that He sees and knows all things.  Sometimes it feels like you are on your own, no one understands, and God is too busy to notice where you are in life.  He not only knew Hagars name but knew who she was. (above verse)  He calls us by name and is acquainted with all our ways. Psalm139:1




I was reading through my last years journal and I found this.   Aug 3rd 2015


A bird just crashed into one of our big glass windows. My heart ached for it, almost as if I could feel its pain.  What a dreadful way to start your morning.



I got my garden gloves. In my night clothes, barefoot, and pink hoodie I went out into the cool morning.  I got the bird from between the screen and glass window and set him gently on the ground.
It's still alive, but I am sure suffering greatly.  I set him gently by the lighthouse, got some bird seeds and put it out in front of him.  I am sure he is frightened, But he had to trust that I knew what I was doing and what was best for him.



God spoke to my heart.  "You my daughter are greatly loved! I have not taken my eyes off you. I notice and I see."  I was all smiles!
