Are you Invisible?

Are you the girl who gets overlooked in crowds?
Are you the guy who feels out of place in the group of guys?
Do you feel different compared to everyone else?
Do you feel like no matter where you go you don't belong?
Do you constantly feel like you don't measure up?
Are you the man who feels like he will never be a good example to the people looking up to him?
Are you the woman who has so much pressure that she can't live her life and enjoy it?
Are you the girl who doesn't have the confidence in herself?
Are you the guy who is too afraid to speak up?
Have you been hiding yourself behind a mask all this time?
Have you been too afraid to step up and show your inner self?


This world makes us feel so inadequate. This world makes us feel worthless. People put labels on us and we feel like we don't qualify or measure up. This world puts so much pressure on us that we feel like we have to meet up to. So many expectations that we feel need to be met. A perfect family. A perfect relationship with God. A perfect body. A perfect boyfriend. A perfect personality. A perfect home.

Nobody can meet up to all the expectations everyone has for us. We all put so much pressure on ourselves. We all want to look perfect, appear perfect and make believe our lives are fairytales. I don't want to be one of those people. I want to be real. I want to show others just what I'm feeling. I don't want to hide what I'm feeling. I am not afraid to admit that I fail. I am a mess. I am not strong. I quit. I give up. I am afraid of failing. I get nervous over the stupidest things. I care more about what other people think about me than I do about myself. I constantly want to be accepted.

This world sends so many thoughts inside our brain. This world makes us feel worthless. This world makes us feel like we don't have a chance to succeed. People dampen our dreams. People cast us down. Satan sends doubts into our hearts to make us want to give up. This world is sinful. But even more so- this world is not our home. This world is a test. A test to see what we do through the tests God sends our way. This world is a place that God put us all in to see how determined we are; how strong we are and how dedicated we are to Him.

When this world throws terrible things your way (and believe me it will) don't let it dampen your strength. Don't let it crush your joy. Jump over those cruel words, circumstances and tests and let them pass beneath you. They don't deserve your joy or tears. You are more than the circumstances, words and comments that you hear. Don't let Satan win and gain the victory. Stand strong and conquer the things God has put in front of you. Don't be afraid, you have God on your side and He will always win in the end. Things may look dark and scary right now, but in the end it will all be made right. Keep the fight and don't worry, you are not alone. You life is not invisible. God sees!

So do not throw away your confidence, it will be richly rewarded. You need to preservere so that when you have done the will of God you will receive what He has promised. 
-Hebrews 10:35-36

  1. You're so right in this post. So perfectly right. Confidence is so important, and it's something so many of us forget. We are our own worst eniemies, and when the world is rough on us, we tend to forget not to let go and give up. I've been following you for a while now, and your posts never dissapoint me. You write about things, which actuattly matter. Keep up the good work! -You're a great inspiration!
