Come Thou Long Expected Jesus
"Do you remember me? Last year you prayed for me when I was having a really rough time. Do you remember that?” I did remember. This beautiful, petite young woman who cried in my office as she revealed the circumstances behind the tears and as she exposed her broken heart...I held her hands as we prayed words of comfort and strength. Words of faith and love. Words of hope in a season of uncertainty. After praying with her, I held her in my arms and she cried on my shoulder. Yes, I remembered her.
Today, after the sermon message of an Unexpected King, she approached me … again with tears in her eyes. This beautiful, petite young woman who wanted to thank and to hug ME. She’s in a better place today but not because of me. God unexpectedly places people in our lives every day. People who need comfort and strength. People who need faith and love. People who need hope. People who need God. God knows and He loves. And because He is who He is ... He unexpectedly places us in situations and in the paths of others so that He may communicate His love through our actions and through our words. Every day.
Two thousand years ago, God unexpectedly revealed Himself in a most unexpected way. Because He knows. And He loves. Even today. Who has God unexpectedly placed in your path? Come thou long expected Jesus.
