There you are!
So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God.Ephesians 2:19
Reading through Ephesians has me thinking a lot about how God sees us.
Then it dawned on me… God sees us.
God sees us. Takes notice of us. Pays attention to us.
He chose us, called us, adopted us, predestined us!
As I thought about this I thought about seeing other people through the eyes of God.
I think it boils down to this:
Are you type of person who walks into a room and says, “Here I am!”
Or do you walk into a room and say, “There you are!”
God walks in and says to us, “There you are!”
There you are my beloved. There you are my adopted one. There you are my saint!
I want to be more like that. All of us can be like that.
We can be the person who walks into the room and says to someone, “There you are! I was looking for you. I was hoping to see you. I wanted to talk to you. Now tell me how you are doing. Tell me about yourself. Tell me aoutr your day. Tell me about your pain. Tell me about your dreams.”
The next time you walk into a room, which will probably before the day is over, decide in advance-
Be the person who walks in and says to someone, “There you are!”
