Feeling Invisible

Feeling Invisible

The past couple weeks I’ve felt kind of invisible. Have you ever felt this way? Like, a client owed me money but when I called (and called, and emailed) I received no answer. When I called about a question to a vendor, I received no response. When I called someone I thought was a friend I received a barely there answer.

Invisible. As if my words, my questions, weren’t getting through. As if no one could see me, or worse, didn’t feel like I was important enough to listen to.

I think in this busy world it’s easy to feel invisible sometimes. This week I’ve clung to the knowledge that God is with me, even when I don’t feel His influence as strongly as other times in my life. I know it’s there. When I feel invisible, I know He’s there, and that helps get me through.

Here’s a good one to think about in times when you feel invisible and not heard.


“Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”

Isaiah 41:10 ESV
