So many times we only measure our effectiveness by who notices, and acknowledges us. But, there are many more people who notice your effort, your hard work, your accomplishments other than those who acknowledge them.
There are people who notice, but intentionally ignore. They make it a point that they DON’T acknowledge you.
As a writer, an artist, a creative, or in whatever you do, these are the individuals who are most impressed by what you do and don’t want to acknowledge to you, or themselves.
These are the people who are likely to imitate you, or modify what you’ve done to claim it for themselves.
So, don’t be discouraged when some of the people you want to notice you don’t acknowledge you. They see what you’re doing.
Remember when you were a child and you intentionally ignored your siblings or friends. You would put your fingers over your ears and say, “Laaaaa, laaaaaa, laaaaaa, laaaaa, I can’t hear you”…but you really could!
Remember, you can’t ignore something you haven’t noticed.
And, though He may seem quiet sometimes, God never ignores you!
Matthew 6:4 (NKJV)
4 that your charitable deed may be in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will Himself reward you [a]openly.
