Audience of One

I wanted to share a thought with you today that comes from 1 Chronicles 16 and Psalm 100. This was something I heard spoken in a sermon at my church and I was reminded of it today.

No matter how lonely, afraid, nervous, or weak you feel, you will always have an audience of ONE. Someone who loves spending time with you, someone who cares about every single one of your emotions, someone who cries tears of pain/joy with you, someone you can call a friend for the rest of your life, as well as someone who calls you friend,  someone who will love you in the midst of your greatest dreams and greatest failures.

His name is Jesus.

1 Chronicles 16:8-12, 29
Give thanks unto the Lord, call upon His name, Make known his deeds among the people.
Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him, Talk you of all his wondrous works.
10 Glory ye in his holy name: Let the heart of them rejoice that seek the Lord.
11 Seek the Lord and his strength, Seek his face continually.
12 Remember his marvelous works that he hath done, His wonders, and the judgments of his mouth;

29 Give unto the Lord the glory due unto his name: Bring an offering, and come before him: Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.

Psalm 100
Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands. Serve the Lord with gladness: Come before his presence with singing. Know ye that the Lord he is God: It is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; We are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, And into his courts with praise: Be thankful unto him, and bless his name. For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; And his truth endureth to all generations.

He is always listening and pursuing you. He dwells in the praises of His people. Take a moment to give thanks today. You will always have an audience of one.


  1. ugh, the concept of always having an audience of one no matter what really touched my heart! such a beautiful way of thinking about God always being with us. when nobody wants to hear us rant or talk about what's going on...He's always there. thank you for the encouraging post. xo

    1. So glad you enjoyed this, Danica. When we need someone to talk to we sometimes forget that He wants us to cast our burdens on Him, share our dreams with Him and have our minds stayed on Him. I needed to be reminded of this, too!

  2. Isn't it just so incredibly freeing to know that God is so personal?! That even though He's so big and we're so small, He loves us enough to chase after our hearts and offer us an intimate relationship with Him!

    1. It truly is! He's a relentless God. Thank you for reading - you have a beautiful blog, Jillian.

  3. Thank you so much for sharing! This was so very encouraging :)

  4. Two verses that I really like! Lovely post! :)
