He Knows

Has no one noticed your sorrow,



Does your anguish

fall on deaf ears?


Feeling unseen

and unheard

causes an ache deep


But I want you to know

that nothing escapes

the watchful eye of God


He hears the thunderous drop

of your silent tears


He is wide awake aware

of your pain


And you can have unique joy

right in the middle of your sorrow


for Perfection

loves you

right in this place


And you don’t need to feel

unseen and unheard


because there is not a single person

on this earth


whose attention on you


matters more

than the attention of Eternal God


He knows

I will be glad and rejoice in your unfailing love,
for You have seen my troubles,
and You care about the anguish of my soul.

– Psalm 31:7 (NIV)


You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in Your bottle. You have recorded each one in Your book.

– Psalm 56:8 (NLT)


Lord, my longings are sitting in plain sight, my groans an old story to You. My heart’s about to break; I’m a burned-out case. Cataracts blind me to God and good; old friends avoid me like the plague. My cousins never visit, my neighbors stab me in the back. My competitors blacken my name, devoutly they pray for my ruin. But I’m deaf and mute to it all, ears shut, mouth shut. I don’t hear a word they say, don’t speak a word in response. What I do, God, is wait for You, wait for my Lord, my God—You will answer! I wait and pray so they won’t laugh me off, won’t smugly strut off when I stumble.

– Psalm 38:8-10 (MSG)
