Arise and come forth unto me, that ye may thrust your hands into my side,
But He does and He loves them."
Today with my patience on a very short leash I needed that gentle reminder.
As I continued to reflect on His great compassion and love for all His creations I passed a shabbily dressed man with unkempt beard, dirty clothing and such a look of sadness filling his thin face.
I found myself wanting to turn around and offer him a cup of coffee or hot chocolate due to it was so cold outside and I could see him visibly shaking, but I was unable to.
As sadness for this lonesome man filled my heart, I realized that this man was a classic example of " He hears one by one, loves one by one, when the crowded world around you doesn't know your name, He knows us one by one."
He hears one by one, loves one by one, when this crowded world around you doesn't know your name;
He know us one by one.
The way he loves you is one by one."
Like her I am amazed that He knows my name and loves me just as He loves that lonely man I passed today and all those who surrounds us.
