If Only You Could See It

Your beauty is seen.

Your pure heart is known and loved.  

You’re valued and cherished by way more people than you will ever know, or could even imagine.

If only you knew just how many other people have been touched and encouraged by your words and by your life, you would be astounded. You’d be utterly amazed.

How I wish you were aware of how many hearts you lighten. How much happiness you shed. The encouragement you bring.

How many talk about you. About how kind you are. Your gentleness and laughter. The way you understand …

You’d think they must be talking about someone else instead.

But the truth is you are precious. Way more precious than you think. Your life’s an inspiration. It’s the truth. Take it to heart.

You leave behind an imprint. You touch others’ lives for good.

You mean so much to others.

Really, you have no idea!

I wish that you could see it. See yourself through clearer eyes.

If only you could see it.

You are beautiful and loved.

“I wish I could show you when you are lonely, or in darkness, the astonishing light of your own being.” – Hafiz

    • You do so much good with your blog … and in life as well. You DO make a difference. I’m so sorry you were having “one of those days” when you feel unseen, and unimportant.
      You truly are a bright light here, and your presence makes a significant difference to so many people! I hope the rest of your day is beautiful.

  1. It is so true that we often cannot see the beauty of our own lives. Your post brings to mind the idea from the Bible of reaping what one sows.

    Some days are better than others, but we must not become weary in doing good. One day we will most definitely reap a harvest if we do not give up. (Galatians 6:9)

    “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” Eleanor Roosevelt

    • Yes, we live with ourselves so we live with all the negative thoughts, feelings and failures (failures that often get blown out of proportion) that others know nothing about. So our emphasis tends to be on the negative.
      At the same time, we either can’t see, or we overlook, the positives and the good.

      I hadn’t thought about sowing and reaping. That’s an encouragement! As you say, “one day we will most definitely reap a harvest if we do not give up.” Thanks, David!

  2. It is so easy to miss out on the strength in ones own self worth. That worth comes from our identity in God, even though it is a truth, we so often focus on other things that make us feel unworthy.
