Are People Seeing Jesus?

I work for a Christian Bookstore chain and have the opportunity of meeting so many different people from all walks of life. I have been blessed by so many – hearing their stories, adventures, and heart.

The other day I had such a blessing.

A mother comes in with her soon to be six year-old daughter on her hip. Her daughter is a down-syndrome child. They were there to buy a Bible for her birthday. I was the one blessed to help with that task. As Mom and I were talking, the girl reaches out for me to hold her. With permission I got to hold this adorable little one as she clung to my neck with her arms and waist with her legs. When it came time for them to leave Mom had to pry her from me but not before a kiss on the cheek given by this loving child. She totally made my day.

I share this story because, I wondered, after they left why she was so drawn to me. She had no apprehension. Did she see something in me that made her feel safe . . . comfortable . . . loved? Did she see Jesus in me? I like to think that is what she saw.

As in water face reflects face,
So the heart of man reflects man. — Proverbs 27:19

Wait and Seek

The Lord is good to those who wait for Him,
To the person who seeks Him. — Lamentations 3:25

Wait for the Lord;
Be strong and let your heart take courage;
Yes, wait for the Lord. — Psalm 27:14

Are you?

O God, You are my God; I shall seek You earnestly;
My soul thirsts for You, my flesh yearns for You,
In a dry and weary land where there is no water. — Psalm 63:1

Will you make this your prayer?

Continually seeking Him,
