He Knows You
It is a great consolation to know that when our hearts fail, we can always trust God to know us. Sometimes we do not know ourselves and do not know how to grow, so we must leave it in His Hands. He truly does know us, and every thought in our minds. He knows our ever motive and our every concern. He knows why we do what we do, and what confuses us about ourselves is clear to Him. We must always have faith in this, especially when seeking our vocations.
From morning until evening He watches over us, reading our hearts like an open book. In the morning He calls us by name and tells our angel what is presently bothering us, and what will in near future. Truly, our present is nothing compared to His understanding of our whole lives. We must be content to rely on Him always, for when our current situations pile up and worry us we become afraid and misunderstand the level of gravity in our situation.
Often times our minds complicate simple things... but God, who is all great, ever sees things simply for what they are. If we are to look back now at what disturbed us most when we were young, it will seem less complicated and troubling to us now than it did then. So also with God's view of us. While He understands this so fully, however, He understands our childish feelings completely and empathizes with us, bringing us strength.
He knows us so deeply, but more importantly, He loves us with an unceasing love. He has created for us infinite souls... and only His eternity can fill them. He has created us with a longing and a thirst, because He never, even for a moment, ceases to long for us. He calls us, and once we hear Him our hearts are apprehended by His love and understanding, so that we cannot leave His embrace; for He wishes us to stay.
If He cares so much as to know the number of hairs on our heads, how much better He must know our hearts! Let us have faith in His love and complete understanding of ourselves. When we are downhearted and worrying.. we must remember that He who is great knows the triviality of our worries and wishes to bring us peace.
