“I feel seen” is a cliché, but like all clichés, it embodies a truth. To say that we feel “seen” expresses a yearning, doesn’t it? A yearning for affirmation, for assurance that we’re not weird and, most of all, a yearning to know that we are loved.
When we take a moment every day—more than one!—and quiet ourselves in prayer, we’re in the presence of the One who created us on purpose, the One who gave his life for us. It can change our whole day to be assured that there is One who knows us and, yes, sees us for who we really are. Each of us is, indeed, seen.
