I see you

Blessed are you as you weep on your knees
With perfume and tears washing over My feet
And blessed are you, beggar, hopeless and blind
Calling for mercy when I'm passing by

Blessed are you, shaking your head
At two tiny fish and some bread
And blessed are you as you tremble and wait
For the first stone thrown at your sinful disgrace


Tell Me your story, show Me your wounds
And I'll show you what Love sees when Love looks at you
Hand Me the pieces, broken and bruised
And I'll show you what Love sees when Love sees you



Blessed are you, walking on waves
To find yourself sinking when you look away
Blessed are you, leper, standing alone
The fear on their faces is all that you've known



Blessed are you, lonely widow who gave
Your last shiny coin to Yahweh
Blessed are you with your silver and lies
Kissing the One who's saving your life



Tell Me your story, show Me your wounds
And I'll show you what Love sees when Love looks at you
Hand Me the pieces, broken and bruised
And I'll show you what Love sees when Love sees you



I see what I made in your mother's womb
And I see the day I fell in love with you
I see your tomorrows, nothing left to chance
I see My Father's fingerprints



I see your story, I see My name
Written on every beautiful page
You see the struggle, you see the shame
I see the reason I came



I came for your story, I came for your wounds
To show you what Love sees when I see you



*When Love Sees You, Mac Powell



I need this reminder today.  I need to know God is watching.  I need to know He hasn't forgotten me.  I wish that my heart and mind would be able to repeat word for word the moments before I heard this song. The gentle way that someone told the crowd the kind of love Jesus has for us.  I know God, but as Peter, I have become scared and lost in my faith.  I have been sinking.  

God spoke through this young woman.  Straight at me.  Does it mean that I am fixed? Not quite, but it does mean that God answered the burning questions in the depth of my soul.  

Oh Great God! Be small enough to hear me now....
