“There is none like You, No one else can touch my heart like You do, I can search for all eternity Lord And find, there is none like You.” ‘There is None Like You’ by Lenny LeBlanc
Have you ever looked at your life and thought about the ways God has shown His mindfulness of you? As I was at work on my break one day, He began to open my mind and heart to His mindfulness of me. From my current job to my relationships to my friendships to my family; to how He speaks to me; to the surprises that pop up in my day to how He places the right people in my path every day at the right time and how He places me in other peoples path every day at the right time.
Maybe for you, He shows His thoughtfulness of you by causing someone to think of you when you feel alone and forgotten. Maybe He shows it by using you to leave notes for others you see are having a bad day because He knows loving on people perks you up. Maybe it’s in someone surprising you with lunch on a day you forgot yours. Or maybe it’s in hearing a story that makes you laugh so hard it brings tears to your eyes, it makes your stomach hurt, and puts you on the floor (which of course this is the best kind of laugh there is!!). Maybe it’s how He has given you people you can really trust or people that love you unconditionally; who believe in you when you don’t believe in yourself. Or maybe it’s in hearing a song that encouraged you or discovering a bible verse that is EXACTLY what you needed in your life at that moment in time.
Oh Lord, how wonderful are Your thoughtfulness towards us!
“When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him?” Psalm 8:3-4
These things are not just a coincidence that randomly happens, but they are ways God shows His mindfulness of us. He knit us together in our mother’s womb. He knows what we crave, what we need, and why we are the way we are. He understands why we need the affections we do and He REGULARLY attends to them whether we realize it or not. His love for humanity blows me away. His love for people goes far beyond our understanding.
Take some time to reflect for yourself of the ways Jesus is mindful of you. Life tries to magnify the bad in our lives and the hardships we face, all for the purpose of distracting us from God and His unfailing love. Because when we reflect on Him and His goodness, praise and thanksgiving begin to happen and shift our perspective! Let’s get this perspective shift together. Really take some time and allow Him to open you up to everything you can think of. He loves each of us in ways we will never fully understand; oh but how grateful I am that He continues with us in this life even when we don’t get it! He surprises us daily with things we tend to take for granted. He knows the ways we need to be loved more than we could ever imagine or think of. Know this: You are His favorite thought!
How precious to me are your thoughts, God! How vast is the sum of them! Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand— when I awake, I am still with you.” Psalm 139:17-18
