If we are honest, most of us would say we have experienced invisibility in some fashion; such as feeling alone in a crowded room, being ignored and overlooked, sensing someone is looking through you not at you, or having your voice silenced because it wasn’t loud enough or strong enough. Perhaps “invisible” hit you when a circumstance or status changed and you found yourself struggling for your identity.
As women, we are wired for relationship. We need each other for encouragement, support, and community. It is easy to forget our worth, our value. We are caretakers and nurturers. Often we put our needs on hold and forget that we matter, too!
Sometimes feeling invisible is a result of our own self inflicted insecurities or self esteem issues, but for many women, it is the result of being in an abusive relationship. These women are treated as invisible. They are told they are invisible. As a result, many retreat and go into isolation mode to survive.
Is there hope?
Their stories will remind us all that we do indeed have something invisible; we wear an invisible crown of royalty . . . because of Christ! And that, dear Girlfriends, is our identity!
Jeremiah 31:3 “I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.”
Here’s a great poem to remind us that we are valued.
