The God Who Sees You

The God Who Sees You

When life circumstances become overwhelming–your marriage is in trouble, unemployment has drained your resources, or your children choose not to honor God–it can take a toll on your heart. You may even begin to feel like God has disappeared, leaving you to face your troubles alone. Tammy Maltby faced these feelings in her own life, and found strength in knowing that God did see her, and does see her, and loves her for who she is. In The God Who Sees You, she encourages women to look to God when they feel discouraged, forgotten or invisible, and take comfort in the story of Hagar, another woman who faced difficult circumstances and overcame them knowing God’s presence was with her. The God Who Sees You also includes an 8-week Study Guide for group discussion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing!, April 21, 2012
This review is from: The God Who Sees You: Look to Him When You Feel Discouraged, Forgotten, or Invisible (Paperback)
For every heart that needs to be lifted, for every soul that needs to be healed, for every mind that needs to be reminded of how God really loves and really sees us. Tammy – it was not just informative, it was transformational and may God bless you for being you and for sharing such a beautiful message with the world. Every once in the while I read a book and say, “I’d love to sit down with this author, have a cup of tea and say, and what about this part of your book, tell me more . . .” Every page touched my heart, and made me thirst for more. I was almost sad when I finished reading “The God Who Sees You”, but I’ll return time and again and I am sure God will send me another message with each reading. I’ll be transformed to someone a little more courageous, closer to God, kinder, more truthful and less fearful.

5.0 out of 5 stars What we all crave, God who sees us, April 10, 2012
This review is from: The God Who Sees You: Look to Him When You Feel Discouraged, Forgotten, or Invisible (Paperback)
Tammy Maltby writes with such thoughtful, beautiful words. When life is challenging, we suffer a loss, or maybe we don’t understand a hurtful childhood, what we need most to remember is that we have a loving Heavenly Father that’s sees us. That cares about us. That knows exactly what we are going through. Maltby writes, “And one of His greatest joys is to lavish wonderful gifts upon you and delight you with beauty. Warm sunshine. Cool breezes. The rustle of leaves and the sparkling of water and the blessing of friends and family.” What a wonderful way to remind me that I have been thoughtfully created by a Creator that wants me to enjoy life. Wants me to know I am loved and thought of. Maltby writes with a real passion that God not only sees us, but delights in us and craves our relationship. Beautiful book! I will be giving this book as a gift to many friends and family.

This review is from: The God Who Sees You: Look to Him When You Feel Discouraged, Forgotten, or Invisible (Paperback)
Have you ever wondered if God sees you? Really sees you! If He sees you in the dailyness of your life. Your fears, your loneliness, your heartache… Have you felt like you wanted Him to, wished that He did but weren’t quite sure or wondered why that desire to be seen was there inside you? If so, then this book is for you!

Tammy Maltby has a gift of being able to express biblical truths in a way that is so real and relateable. God DOES see you in fact He put that desire to be seen in you because He wants to fill it. As womem, we are responsible for doing so many things that go unseen in providing for our families, our friends, spouses, work… All of which can lead us to feeling forgotten. But we’re not! We’re seen in an intimate way by a God who loves us and Tammy does an amazing job at driving home these truths in a way that speaks life to your heart and soul. As I learned from reading this book, sometimes “the biggest miracle is just a perspective change” and if you’re in need of that? This book is for you!

5.0 out of 5 stars You Are Not Invisible To God, May 13, 2012
This review is from: The God Who Sees You: Look to Him When You Feel Discouraged, Forgotten, or Invisible (Paperback)
“The God Who Sees You” is a book for people who are feeling ignored, invisible, and forgotten by God and others. It helps people to understand that God can see them, just like Hagar shows us when she used the name “El Roi” (The God Who Sees) to describe him. This book shows readers how they can look back and see how good can/has come from their traumatic experiences and how God loves and has a special interest in people that our society sometimes writes off, such as homeless people, orphans, prisoners, and widows.

I am glad that this book pointed out that Jesus understood what it was like to feel ignored, invisible, and forgotten because this is one way that people can relate and feel closer to him when they are feeling this way. I also learned that people can be spiritually deaf, mute, blind, and crippled which can cause them not to see the needs of people that are right in front of their eyes, and that we’re probably all guilty of being like this towards others at some point in our lives. Instead we need to have our ears and eyes opened and to notice and take care of people’s needs (as we are nudged by the Holy Spirit to do so), and in the Biblical sense to have our hearts softened. There is a story in this book that painted this picture so vividly to me, about a homeless man that the Lord nudged someone to buy lunch for. The story that was described when she decided to be obedient almost blew my socks off.

In general, what this book taught me is that there are so many people who feel unnoticed, unwelcome, and alone. God wants us to pay attention to who is placed before us, which means that we don’t need to be everything to everybody. To connect with these people and to love them the way God wants us to is the better choice instead of looking in the other direction. We won’t be alone in doing this if we have Jesus in our hearts and our lives. Oftentimes we will be called to do things for others in small, although challenging ways.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I viewed this e-book (galley) free from the publisher through Netgalley. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comforting, August 18, 2012

“I love those who love me, and those who seek me find me.” ~ God

It has taken me most of my life to get to the point where I feel love for God. There were times when I didn’t feel God’s presence like I do now. This book explains why God can sometimes seem to hide from us and how at other times he is intimately involved in our lives. This is a good book to read if you are struggling with the idea that God cares for you and watches over you. He knows what is best for you and takes action accordingly. I found the stories in this book to be especially touching and they might bring tears to your eyes because they are so beautiful. If you need some comfort and encouragement I can not think of a better book to read that will give you hope.

5.0 out of 5 stars Refreshing!, March 26, 2012
This review is from: The God Who Sees You: Look to Him When You Feel Discouraged, Forgotten, or Invisible (Paperback)
In her best book yet, Maltby writes words of hope and healing for people who feel discouraged, forgotten and invisible. In a society where we carefully construct and manage Facebook images, where we boast hundreds of acquaintances and few friends, where text messages substitute for real relationships–many are acquainted with feeling invisible. The message that God sees you, knows you, loves you and forgives you is life-giving. Tammy’s practical and down to earth approach strips away pretence and helps you see God’s intimate care and concern in practical ways. You’ll want a copy for yourself–and another for a friend who needs some encouragement.

5.0 out of 5 stars The God Who Sees You, April 26, 2012
This review is from: The God Who Sees You: Look to Him When You Feel Discouraged, Forgotten, or Invisible (Paperback)
This book is for any woman needing to hear for the first time, or the 20th time, that God SEES you and loves you. Tammy writes this book in a refreshingly real and inspiring way that keeps you reading, page after page. This book is filled with scriptural meaning as you see how God sees His children time and time again, throughout the old and new testament. He sees you, He is aware of you, and He wants you to be a part of what He is doing in this world.
While I was reading this book, I had a fateful meeting with a homeless man as I met his eyes in a restaurant parking lot. The Holy Spirit nudged me, and I obeyed by buying him lunch and then telling him, “God wants me to tell you that He sees you and He loves you.” As I drove away, I began to cry as I realized those words were also for me! About one week after that meeting, I read the chapter about Tammy reaching out to a homeless man and letting him know that God saw him and loved him. Those were my EXACT words a week before to the homeless man I met In the parking lot! Tammy’s book is timely, and her words will minister to you no matter what season of life you are in. They may also prompt you to action- this book is worth your time, and you will be inspired and blessed. Buy an extra copy for a friend!

5.0 out of 5 stars I found the book to be entertaining, April 3, 2012
This review is from: The God Who Sees You: Look to Him When You Feel Discouraged, Forgotten, or Invisible (Paperback)
This author is very direct and I especially liked how her personality came out in her writing. If you are feeling lonely or lost in the crowd this book is perfect. Our relationship with Christ should be our most important one and understanding how much Christ loves us can change our whole perspective on life.

I thought the book was very encouraging and will really help you in your thinking. You will realize that mattering to Christ is what matters, not how many names you have listed under “friends.” Understanding that Christ loves you and no person can care for you as much as Him, is one of the major lessons in the book. There was not a page in the book that I did not find something to think about or learn from.

I found the book to be entertaining without haughtiness. I liked everything about the book and think it is perfect for every woman to read, especially those going through a difficult time or feeling discouraged.

I would like to thank NetGalley and the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Book, March 23, 2012
This review is from: The God Who Sees You: Look to Him When You Feel Discouraged, Forgotten, or Invisible (Paperback)
I was able to review this book via NetGalley. This is a wonderful book, my life is changing to really understanding that God really does see me and all of what is going on in my life on a personal level. This is a Great book for all who has felt forgotten, invisible, discouraged, and even unloved. There are many people who even feel as though God is distant. This book will bring a lot into perspective that God is not distance and he loves us on a personal level. The testimony of the authors encounter with El Roi is a powerful one that will truly move the heart to God, so the individual will move their heart to God and seek His approval. For far too long Satan has been deceiving us into believing that God is distant, uncaring and is a strict ruler. For those wanting to break this deception and really begin to see God as He is seeing you, I highly recommend this book!!

5.0 out of 5 stars How Do You Believe God See’s You?, January 20, 2014
Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
What an eye opening look at the way God see you threw His eyes. Author’s Tammy Maltby and Christian Buchanan have written a different thought process as to the how God looks into your life.

How well do you know the Lord? Do you know that He knows the very deepest part of you? Have you or do you feel invisible? I know I have at times, but I do know that God loves me and that what ever I go thru He is there.

If you are going threw a time in your life that you are struggling to know that God is working behind the scene sometimes. We may not always see His hand working. This book will give you a chance to learn just how and what God is doing in your life.

So here is my Breath of Life Rating of this wonderful book:

Five Clock Rating!!
