Excerpt from the novel Shadowed in Silk:

Eshana gave Abby a quick smile. “Only Christ can lift the veil that separates us from the Almighty. By my faith in His death for me and in His resurrection, He pulled that covering away. But there is another side to that unveiling. When Christ lifted my sin away, God saw the genuine Eshana, the daughter He intended at creation.”

Around Abby, the colorless landscape wavered in the heat. Could this be true . . . ? For God to see me face to face . . . the real me . . . hear me . . .

So many of us have the feeling we are invisible, as if a veil covers our face, and that we are of little consequence. There are many reasons for feeling inferior. In my case it was growing up with an alcoholic dad who never saw me enough to care. It took the Heavenly Father several decades to teach me how important I was to Him.

shadowed in silkIf you are feeling invisible or insignificant, remember that the Son of God died for you. His sacrifice shows what great value God places upon you. You may feel invisible, but not to God. When you fully trust Him, it’s as if He lifts that veil of insignificance from your face and sees the real you . . . a person He takes great delight in. As you learn to walk with Him day by day, you become that extraordinary person He had in mind when He first created you. God sees you.
