In Unseen, Sara Hagerty tells us that God has created every heart to be seen, and that He sees every heart. In a society that lives for being successful, to produce and do something all the time — we often feel like we waste time when we are not accomplishing something. But what matters, is the time we spend with God. That we grow closer to Him. This, though, happens in moments that are unseen by the rest. Moments that, maybe, feel like they are not significant. But in these moments, we come face to face with God. So maybe it is in those moments when we are not accomplishing seventeen things at the same time. Maybe it is those “unseen” moments, that are the best for our soul.
In all honesty, God used this book to breathe life into my soul. As someone who so often tries to earn love, I find myself wanting to be seen. But the life of a Christian is not based on the mountaintop experiences. It is more about walking in the valleys, in the lowlands. In the unseen moments, where are hearts are seen only by God. Those are the moments that form our hearts.
At the end of every chapter, Hagerty provides Bible verses for the reader to study God’s Word more on this topic. I loved this. I recommend this book for every one to read.
