About the Author

Anjuli grew up as a missionary kid secretly wondering, “Why does everyone else understand what a relationship with Jesus is, but me?” It wasn’t until she ran into her fears instead of from them, that Anjuli found her voice and the love of God meeting her there. She is a...

  1. Anjuli,

    Thank you for these beautiful words of God’s relentless pursuit of us even when we don’t realize it. Our pain can be the very catalyst that pulls our hearts to pursue Him. I am so grateful His love is steadfast and unrelenting.

  2. Thank you for sharing your heart with us today! I am always encouraged when I read what God has placed upon your heart to reach into your sisters hearts. We are selfish, but Christ is victorious even over that! Praise God! May He help us let it all go at the foot of the cross, no more holding on to the edge of what we thought should or could happen. He knows all of it. He is in all of it. Keep on trusting our Gracious and Merciful Lord!

  3. I used to feel forgotten unwanted alone. Especially when I have every little friends. In fact one that I hardly ever see. When we do catch up it is nice she is just lovely. The other two live 86 miles away from me. I hardly ever get to see them they are lovely too. I don’t drive. I did but health reasons stop me. I don’t miss it. My Dad does drive. Only I visit him he not visit me except for my Birthday and Christmas. One time that annoyed me. I felt he had forgotten me. It did hurt for a long time. Then I said sure I can go visit him what the big deal. Many a person in this world has no Dad does not know their Dad or their Dad passed away at least I still have mine. God showed me I am not ever forgotten. Unwanted alone. I am special. I am loved. I have the best friend of all that is God himself. Sure like this song. It is one of my favourite it is “What a friend we have in Jesus all our sins and greifs to bear” How true that song is. You get it on YouTube. It worth listening to. Love today reading well wrote. Thank you for it. Like all incourage reading they are excellent. Love Dawn Ferguson-Little xxx

  4. Anjuli,

    This world says have a big platform, do & be more. That isn’t always easy. Sometimes life hits us hard with trials & tribulations. You get a diagnosis you didn’t expect, parents get ill, you lose a job & have to move away from friends & family, etc. You feel like no one sees you. No one cares about your “little” struggles. That isn’t true. God went to the great lengths to show His love for you. He sent His only son who died on a cross-if for no one else but you alone. I believe God allows those trials in our lives to slow us down & woo us back to His enduring love. If you fell unloved, unwanted, or unnoticed-remember God sees you, knows you intimately & loves you immensely.

    Blessings 🙂

  5. The timing of reading your words was perfect, Anjuli, as I was just on the phone telling a friend who is on the opposite end of the country from me: “I feel disconnected from folks in my usual circles.” Through the pandemic, the rise and fallout of many come from the differences in ‘opinion’ over appropriate public behavior in my State. This has led to those of us who are standing on the premise of “love thy neighbor by protecting them” through compliance with legal ordinances to be on the “outside.”
    It is indeed lonely. But as you reminded me, El Roi, the God Who “sees” me, also provides for me — comfort and reassurance — that my security and inclusion comes from Him.
    Thank you for this!

  6. I did a study on Rachel and Leah. Nowhere in any translation of the Bible does it say that Leah was ugly. It only says she had weak eyes, which probably meant she was born with a lazy eye, or was nearsighted and needed glasses. (2 things that are easily correctable nowadays, but back then was unheard of.) But for some reason, people have it in their heads that she was ugly when in fact, she probably just had a problem with her vision.
