God Sees Me

Look in the mirror
What is in the reflection?
I see me
I see someone who is different
I see someone who doesn’t fit in
I see someone who is not special
I see pain and loneliness
I see all the mistakes
I see me

What does God see?
God sees me
God sees someone He made unique
God sees someone He made to stand out
God sees a special person
God sees the one He made for a purpose.
God sees me,
God made me,
God loves me,
God sees me!

Thereafter, Hagar used another name to refer to the LORD, who had spoken to her. She said, “You are the God who sees me.” She also said, “Have I truly seen the One who sees me?””
Genesis 16:13 NLT
