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.

Don't Harbor Unforgiveness

“ His mother left him and his father turned his back on him .” These words struck me like a bolt of lightening. They were words spoken directly to me. They depict a part of my life that I failed to acknowledge. A part of my life that I suppressed. A part of my life that I chose to ignore. Failure to acknowledge. Suppression. Ignoring. None of these things cause the past to flee. These things do not cause the past to change. Nor do they allow for full ability to walk into true purpose and authority. This is not an isolated story. With a human service and child welfare background, I know firsthand that this story is one in a million. But we also see it every day. If you're like me, you sometimes find your escape in movies and television series. Instead of spending time in your own realities, you spend time watching scripted realities. It's an opportunity to disengage ourselves from the characters on the screen. It's a way to passively accept or criticize the s
