March Madness - Day 22


Even the invisible can be invincible!

All I remember hearing is "Do you see me?"

They were not my spoken words but it's a question I often ask in silence.

A question I ponder day after day.

When I do ask the question aloud, I usually ask, "Am I really that invisible?"

Dictionary.com defines 'invisible' as "unable to be seen; not visible to the eye." It goes further to clarify "treated as unable to be seen; ignored or not taken into consideration."

Yes, that's the definition that best describes the adjective I often use to describe myself. Invisible.

Of course, I don't use that adjective in a job interview when asked, "Tell us about yourself."
Yet, when I'm being really honest with myself, that's the best adjective to use.

It's because others don't see me.

Nope. They don't really see me.

Perhaps it's my stature. Perhaps it's my aura. Perhaps it's my confidence. (Speaking of which, click here to find out where your confidence lies). Perhaps it's the mask.

None of that really matters though. You know why? Because God sees me. Jeremiah 1:5 tells me, "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart..."

There may be times when you, like me, feel alone. Times when we feel overlooked. Times when we feel left out. Times when we feel abandoned.

Regardless of how we FEEL in the moment, the TRUTH is:

  • We are NEVER alone. God is always with us. 
  • We are NOT overlooked. God is preparing a place for us.
  • We are NOT left out. God has set up aside for something greater.
  • We are NOT abandoned. God is carrying us even when we don't feel Him. 

If you feel or have ever felt invisible, email me at mylifeonthebeam@gmail.com so that we can stand together and be invincible.

More Than Words

It's September and you know what that means....

Wait, you do know what that means, right?!

Just in case you did not guess it, school 🏫 is back in session.  

It is the time of year of growing, planning, reading, thinking, and so much more.

This is an especially challenging year for me. I, yes I - well at least figuratively speaking, will be graduating 🎓 from 8th grade and also 12th grade. Yes, lots of big accomplishments. I'm excited and nervous, all at the same time.

But I am also starting a feel a little overwhelmed. As I started this school year, I accepted a new responsibility. I agreed to read all of the books 📚 that are needed to fulfill the 8th grade Language Arts requirements. Yes, this was completely voluntarily. I am not quite sure what I was thinking, though I am pretty sure the words spit out of my mouth before my mind knew what was happening. I guess I figured that was the price of good parenting. What even is 'good parenting' anyway?

At any rate, I have start…
