I went to Goodwill today and came away with a few treasures. I even found a CD of Rachmaninoff concertos played by Mr. Rachmaninoff himself.
I’m sometimes amazed at what people decide to give away. I suppose that it’s true that one man’s trash is another man’s treasure.
You might feel like that some days. You feel like something in a thrift store– overlooked, unwanted, and worthless. But God sees you.
You might feel like a total screw up some days. You might feel like you’re close to 100%– for messing up everything you touch. But God knows you.
Today, in the middle of another long week, God both sees and knows about you. He is actively moving on your behalf.
I’ve discovered that there are also people who see and know you. They will be the ones God uses to remind you that you are not alone. They will be the ones to speak life and healing and hope into you when you need it most.
You generally don’t find these people by looking for them. They tend to show up when you least expect it. But that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t hold on to them once you find them. Treasure these people for as long as God puts them in your path.
Remember, friends. You are seen. You are known. You are loved. You are treasured.
