"For You, O Lord, have made me glad by Your works: at the deeds of Your hands I joyfully sing."
~ Psalm 92:4 ~
As we go through difficult or joyous times, do we forget about others?
Do we lose sight of the most beautiful commission? The commission of The Amazing Savior, Jesus Christ who came to give life and life more abundantly, rescuing us from eternal damnation into eternal relationship with our Heavenly Father.
Do we delightfully surprise those around us, as seen here in this video?
(Please note: To pause the background music, please scroll down to the bottom of the page and pause 'playlist' before watching video).
As I watch this; yes! Tears stream down my face as I wonder who in that crowd needed a 'pick me up'? What if there was a someone in the crowd who felt all hope was lost? What if someone in the crowd was riding the train to see a loved one who was dying? The 'what if's' are endless, aren't they? Yet, that moment of surprise must have provided such hope to those individuals; even to the ones where things are going great.
Watching this video leads me to this question, "Do I reveal the Father God with great delight, bringing hope to a hopeless situation?" Or do I reveal myself? Bringing little hope, if any, to an already hopeless situation? I am reminded that I am not called to reveal myself; I am called to trust in God revealing a glimpse of His Awesome, Indescribable Glory!
