Book Review: The God Who Sees You

With Anne Christian Buchanan.

Do you remember a time in your life when you felt forgotten, ignored, rejected, or simply invisible?

About The Author
Tammy Maltby's multifaceted ministry can be summed up in one word: encouragement. Through her books, speaking events, and broadcasts, this Emmy-winning TV cohost encourages women to live more beautifully and transparently.

God Really Sees You
This book begins with the story of Hagar from Genesis 16 and 21. Hagar was a maidservant in the camp of Abram and Sarai. Sarai is unable to bear a son for Abram, so she compels Hagar to sleep with Abram in the hopes that the servant will produce a son for Sarai to raise. But when Hagar obeys and becomes pregnant, Sarai becomes jealous and abusive. Hagar runs away to the desert.

An angel appears to Hagar bringing a message from a God she barely knows. The angel says, "The Lord has heard of your misery."
He tells her to return to Abram and Sarai, have her baby, and name him Ishmael.

Ms. Maltby took the title of this book from the following Scripture;
She gave this name to the LORD who spoke to her:
"You are the God who sees me,"
for she said, "I have now seen the One who sees me."
Genesis 16: 13 
Tammy Maltby wants women to know their lives matter.  She invites you to explore the real-life implications of knowing God sees you, He loves you passionately, and He's intimately involved with every aspect of your life.

My Thoughts
I have been reading this book right before I go to bed for the past week. The book really opened my eyes and helped me understand that God sees me and cares about me ALL THE TIME.  He loves me and he wants to participate in my life.

This book will encourage those who feel like no one notices them, no one cares. I think we all feel like that at times. You will find hope and comfort in the pages of this book.

There is a section of "questions for thought and sharing" at the end of the book. These questions are excellent for individual or group study and meditation. This book is ideal for a women's group study or individual growth and fulfillment.

The author challenges readers with the following questions;
What would it take for you to say, "I have seen the God who sees me"?
What would it take to share this message with someone else?

My Rating: 5 Stars Out Of 5
