Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too great for me to understand! Psalm 139:6

Maybe you long to be loved, to be noticed by someone who is special and treats you special. You think you are the “Plain Jane” type, no one will notice you; no special guy that is. Then comes along the most wonderful person in the world. He is beyond anything you can imagine. He makes your heart flutter. But surely, he is too good for you, he will want someone more beautiful with a cooler personality. Then boom, he looks at you, talks to you, pays attention to you and even asks you for a date. Life couldn’t get better. It is too good to be true, wonderful beyond description. Your heart and mind can scarce take it in. You have been noticed. You are seen.

Or maybe love never comes, at least not unconditional love. You didn’t get it from your parents, your friends or the person you are married to. Maybe disappointments in life have damaged your self image and you feel unworthy of love. Or maybe love comes at a high cost. It isn’t comfortable. You need to earn it.

But there is One who notices us, every moment, every day. He is called the bridegroom of heaven; the fairest of ten thousand, the bright and morning star, the sunshine from on high. He is the lover of our soul; the one who loves us beyond compare. That knowledge is too overwhelming for me. It’s intoxicating that God would bend down to earth and take notice of little old me.

Compared to God, I am “Plain Jane”, unworthy of such attention, unequal of such love. He lifts me up from the dungeons of depression and despair.

If God says to you, I think about you, I bless you, I know all about you, I care about you so much, I know everything you do; how does this change your self-image? If he says, to you, I am always watching you and thinking about you, doesn’t that answer our heart’s cry? If you know the God of the universe, the one who created you, Almighty God cares for you, what does that do for you?

To have Almighty God think about me is beyond comprehension, too wonderful for me, too good to be true. But it is good, and it is true.

By Helen Khan

My first published book Shrouds Over Eden is influenced by my experiences living in a South Asian nation for over ten years. My years as a marriage and spiritual counsellor and my education in Sociology and International and Intercultural Education also weave their way into my writings. When I use the word writings, that means that other books are on the way. I try to live a retired life with my husband, 2 dogs, several cats, a peacock and other featured friends, but somehow my life is always busy. My favourite time of the day is doing word games with my husband while sitting on our veranda. You can also follow me on Facebook at My profile is also on Goodreads
