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.

March Madness - Day 5

My marriage is important because....
It's the thing that has kept me grounded for more than 10 years.

I had no idea what to expect regarding the Tallahassee heat and humidity. I quickly found out all about it since my move to Florida occurred during mid-summer. I landed in Florida on Sunday, July 16, 2006. Since I didn't start classes until August, I had a month or so to get acclimated to the area and to run errands. I needed to find a daycare, drive by schools, and establish residency. All of this was to be done with three kids in toe, all under the age of five.

I was up to the challenge. One afternoon in August, we were headed out for errands. Once I got to the car, I realized that I didn't have any water. I ran back upstairs to our apartment. When I opened the freezer to reach for a bottle of ice cold water, I was stopped in my tracks by a ring box and a note.

Yes! This man left his family behind for me.
Yes! This man spent 6 weeks alone in Tallahassee to set a foundati…
