NOTES FROM US

loneliness, depression, invisible

Alot of Value

I have been challenged recently by one of the young women to whom we have been ministering.  It seems as though she feels she does nothing right, feels like a failure and just continues to drain herself with these thoughts of discontent, and lies from the enemy. 

As I am a very positive person, I find it hard to listen to others who find such negative words to say about themselves or anyone.  I am learning though that as I listen to others share their hearts, so many of them are just buried with guilt from their past, or they choose to live in such a horrible view of who they are as a new creation in Christ.

When I'm Invisible


Recently I had the opportunity to visit with a young mother who was sharing her heart with me.  She shared the struggles of being a new mom, the struggles of having to keep the house, and finding a balance between who she is as an individual, a wife, a mother, and friend.  It struck me when she said: “I think I’m invisible…even with the people I know.”  Now, this is not just a very shy and quiet mother who just sits in the pews.  This is a woman who has been actively involved in her local church, in the lives of individuals, and in the community.
