God has given us words that can comfort us in our distress. Why not begin with the words, "You are the God who sees me". For God really does see you. He sees all of your circumstances, He understands all of your pain. He can identify when people mistreat you and reject you. For HIs Son was mistreated and rejected too. God however knows not only your past, and your present, He knows your future also. He knows that He has a plan for your life that will make your trials pale in comparison to the glory that will be revealed.

For the eyes of the Lord move to and fro throughout the earth so that He may support those whose heart is completely His. 2 ‘Chronicles 16:9 (AMP)
