He Sees Me

Hello friends! Thank you for your grace in me being absent a couple of days. I’m using the 5 Minute Friday challenge today to get back into the swing of things.

This week’s word challenge is:


You know the drill by now. No editing. Just typing the thoughts that flow in these 5 minutes. Ready? I’m set. Let’s GO!


He sees me. Better than I see myself sometimes and I wonder why he has chosen to love me. His eyes can pierce through any facade I have covered myself with this day, inviting me to peel back the layers and shine brilliantly. Encouraging me to  keep striving. Me — the one he sees so vividly. The one he has chosen to display God’s love and grace to on a daily basis.

And I love him more for it — this husband of mine. I force myself to not look away when I realize he can see me in all my colors as vivid as a Picasso masterpiece. For this is love. This is an example of God’s grace pouring down on me. To me. For me.

And I love him more for it — this husband of mine. He shows me but a glimpse of how my Jehovah sees me. The layers. The contrasts. The flaws I have tried to conceal. They all shine brilliantly in God’s eyes and yet He’s still here. My Savior doesn’t look away. He’s not ashamed of me. For He sees me, His child. He sees my potential, my purpose as vivid and crisp as a full moon spotlighted against the black of night. He sees me. And loves me anyway.

May I not look away. May I humbly accept God’s look of love. His glance of grace. May I accept His offer of forgiveness and not look away. For I want to truly see Him. As vivid as He sees me.

May I not look away.


How about you? How do You see Him? I’d love to hear. 

Thanks for sharing your time with me.

Simply striving,

  1. This is beautiful, Nikki. How do I see Him? He is the thread that weaves me together.. complete. I don’t know how else to describe it. He is my life! The moment I turn away…stop looking…I stop breathing. Thank you for reminding me to slow down and gaze upon my Redeemer’s loving face.

    • What a beautiful imagery of the relationship with your Redeemer, Katie! (and you got my post despite it being all over the place! yay! oh, I wish we could edit them…) : )

      Enjoy your weekend!

    • Thank you so much for stopping by! I was so encouraged by your blog. thank you for sharing. (I’m not sure if you got my comment or not, I was having trouble for some reason — on your post where you shared the hymn that’s been on my heart lately: I surrender all. beautiful…)

I can't wait to hear from you...
