Gladys Knight and The Pips "To Be Invisible"
To be invisible
Will be my claim to fame
A girl with no name
That way, I won’t have to feel the pain
Just a plain old human being
Today, don’t mean a thing
In a world that’s so mean
A world that seems not for me
So privately, I’ll be invisible
That way, I won’t have to explain a thing, if you know what I mean
I won’t even have to be here, on the scene
These are the opening lyrics to the song by Gladys Knight and the Pips off the Claudine soundtrack album. And the song ends with this line… “So I’ll be invisible, invisible, invisible” as the song fades off. If you think about this song in the context of today’s society, people are running around in a world oblivious to one another. Some are overtly showboating for the world audience but then you have the ones who are almost invisible. They go through their own little private lives, not causing a stir and if you do not focus on them they are almost invisible. they do not cause trouble, the do not rock the boat, they do not cause ripples in the pond. They are in essence, invisible.
This past Sunday, Pastor Derick Faison started a new series titled, “INVINCIBLE” and the sub-title was, “Make Your Life Undefeatable”. In the context of the Pastor’s sermon INVINCIBLE would be the opposite of INVISIBLE. I sometimes wonder what lurks behind the vacant smiles and the pleasantries that are so generalized and given so quickly as people rush in and out of our lives.
“Philippians 1:6 being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ;”
The three major points to the Pastor’s sermon were:
- God always sees the end from the beginning.
- God does not start anything he does not plan to finish.
- God gives every problem an expiration date!
God can take you from INVISIBLE to INVINCIBLE!
Be Blessed and Be a Blessing!
