Have you ever been forgotten? Left behind? Overlooked for someone else to be chosen instead?
It happens to all of us. But it still hurts. The betrayal stings. It leaves us wondering why we aren’t good enough, wanted enough, loved enough.
But have you ever been remembered? Was there a special day that a dear friend didn’t forget? Is there someone you can always count on to save you a spot or wait for you to catch up in the hallway?
Whether you answered yes or no to being remembered, you actually have been! The God of the universe declares that you are loved enough, wanted enough, that He will never forsake you. He has remembered you. In Joshua 1:5 He declares His presence that always accompanies you. His tender care will never leave you in want of more. Take time to praise Him for that today!
-Make a reminder of God’s presence—maybe by drawing a picture or writing out this verse— to keep in your room.
-Talk about a time this week that you have felt alone or overlooked. Rethink through that situation knowing that God was right there with you. Practice keeping your perspective on God’s presence for the next time you feel alone or overlooked.
