“People Treated Me Like I Didn’t Exist”

August 24, 2016

Justin Gatlin recently won a silver medal in the 100m race at the 2016 Olympics, finishing second to Usain Bolt. No disgrace there at all.

Earlier in his atheltic career, however, there were allegations and suspensions related to some performance enhancing drug issues. Chris Collinsworth interviewed Gatlin in Rio and asked him what had been the lowest point in that chapter of his life.

Gatlin’s answer: “When people treated me like I didn’t exist.”

Ouch.

You and I know people experiencing that right now.

Maybe you’ve been there yourself.

Maybe you know what God promises in Isaiah 49:15I will never forget you.

But maybe you need to be reminded of that today.

And maybe you need to remind someone else today that God remembers them, and that you do, too.

Maybe the time to do that is right now.
