The feeling of being forgotten has been an unexpected challenge of adulthood for me. No one warned me there would be many days where I feel like crying out, “What about me?!” Communication with friends dwindles as people move out of state for jobs, work long hours to get a promotion, or get married and begin their families. 

“What about me? Am I still important in your life?” People post on social media about how they have their dream job. Meanwhile, I’m thinking that while I like my job, it’s not where I pictured myself. “What about me? When am I going to feel like I’m where I’m supposed to be? When will I stop feeling like I’m getting lost in the shuffle of life?"

Even though I may feel forgotten, deep down I know I’m not. God has told us, “I have called you by name. You are mine.” (Isaiah 43:1). This makes it impossible for us to be forgotten. We may feel as if the world has forgotten us or we’re not where we should be, but none of this is true. God knows our names and directs our steps. We are God’s children and he could never forget us.
