Does your life situation cause you to feel “invisible”
Such was the story of the beautiful Shummanite maiden Abishag
(probably a very young virgin girl) brought to Israel to be a nurse/companion for
The ailing. dying., aged King David. In 1Kings1:4 It was written about her ‘she cherished the King’
Her main job was to lay beside him to give warmth, comfort and youthful life.
She was probably forgotten and unnoticed. An invisible committed part of court life.
However, she was present when Bathsheba gained audience with David and asked him for his Oath and Promise that their son Solomon would be his successor. David knew this was the Will of God and Abishag heard his sworn oath.
This could have cost her life.
David’s son Adonijah planned to take Abishag and make her his wife and then push to gain the Kingdom.
Solomon knew of the plot and was aware of the Sacred Oath. He saw the dangerous threat to the young girl.
Solomon executed Abonijah.
Abishag has only an insignificant mention in the WORD but because of her faithful attention to her duties probably lived on in insignificance holding on to the TRUTH of Solomon’s right to the throne .all her life.
Maybe she lived to see the Queen of Sheba and witnessed her transformed life when she encountered the wisest man on Earth and gained knowledge about his GOD.
What seemingly insignificant role am I to fulfill in my life?
What about you?
Jesus said ‘My Sheep hear My Voice. Follow Me.’
One Day at a time dear ones!

A beautiful story to encourage those of us who believe we lead only ordinary lives. ❤
A beautiful reminder how God does not make Junk & that we all hold great purpose in His eyes. The prayer remains for us to use His lens to look through as we peer, not only onto others, but upon our own selves, as well. 💗 Hugs to you Faye for this loving reminder….
