I’m going to do something a little different with this post, in that I’m going to ask you to be involved with it.  Find yourself asking “huh”?  Read on.

I have been asked to speak at a break-out session at my church’s annual ladies retreat.  I’ve been praying about what topic to talk about and had something pop in my head during my quiet time this morning.  My lesson in the bible study I’m working through was about our longing to “be known” – the fact that we often feel invisible.  This really resonated with me, as I can look back over my life and see times where I’ve definitely felt this way.  I’m mulling over and praying about discussing this topic in my talk.
My question for you is this:  Have you ever (or do you now) feel invisible, or suffer feelings of discontent, emptiness or longing?  What ways have you (do you) tried to fill the emptiness or fix the situation?  Was it successful or did you still come up empty?  What is your opinion of how God works into all of these feelings?
Because I might like to use some of these answers in my talk, I’d prefer that you comment as “Anonymous”.  This should be a perfect opportunity for all those “lurkers” out there to come out of the dark and let us hear from you! :o)  I look forward to reading your thoughts and appreciate your insight.  And…if I decide to go another direction with my topic, you might hear from me again on that one!
