Here’s a word from Dawson…
There’s this incredibly beautiful verse in Isaiah 30:18, “Yet the Lord longs to be gracious to you.” He aches in his heart to want to be good to us, give us things, love us, lead us, help us. He longs to be gracious to you. “Therefore, he will rise up to show you compassion.” Think of that!
I always think of it literally in my mind. God rising up, this great beautiful cloud of power. Can you imagine? When you do the right thing, God rises up, just to thank you and encourage you. It’s a beautiful thing.
He wants to show you compassion. As you look for compassion, God’s right there to stand up and give you a standing ovation. He is on your side!
The Lord is certainly eager to show his compassion to the McAllister family as they adjust to their lives without Dawson. You can show you compassion by continuing to remember Ruth Hill, Addison, Fulton and Gene in your prayers this week – and may the Lord give you a special blessing.
