Do you ever read Scripture and find yourself wondering, “is the Bible relevant today?” We definitely feel that disconnect. So we’ve set out to make Scripture meditations that give us a framework for how to start reading the Bible. Join us as we let the Bible be the Bible, and learn to engage with it meaningfully. 


No One Sees Me

Life’s gotta way of piling up sometimes. Emails accumulate in your inbox. Assignments and deadlines stack against you. And the family crisis escalates at the exact moment you step away for a break. You try to carry it all, going on as if nothing is wrong, like you have unlimited capacity to handle it.

Sometimes it feels like nobody sees you, or understands why you’re so tired. You can’t let them know ‘cause you can’t let them down. So you tell yourself to be stronger, instead of being honest.

But, you want someone to 𝒔𝒆𝒆 you, weaknesses and all, and love you anyway. Maybe even help carry the load.

Psalm 103 tells us that God knows exactly what we are: dust. He sees us like flowers, fragile and easily blown down. Still, he compassionately lavishes us with his everlasting love. He understands our limits because he created us with them– for our own good!

He can carry the load.

Psalm 103:13-14

13 As a father has compassion on his children, so the LORD has compassion on those who fear him; 14 for he knows how we are formed, he remembers that we are dust. 15 The life of mortals is like grass, they flourish like a flower of the field; 16 the wind blows over it and it is gone, and its place remembers it no more. 17 But from everlasting to everlasting the LORD’s love is with those who fear him.

Observations from the Text

  • God is a compassionate father (v. 13)
  • He understands our limits (v. 14)
  • God knows how we’re made and what we’re made of (v. 14)
