1 Samuel 16.6
Samuel took one look at Eliab and thought, "Here he is! God's anointed!"
thank you for the heart you have created in us, lord. thank you for giving us a way to overcome superficiality, for generously giving us your perspective on others around us, your perspective on us. thank you that our heart can see more than our eyes, way more than what we see on the surface. thank you for communicating with us through your spirit. what a truly life-giving experience when you brought our spirit back to life so we could relate with you, we could see people the way you do, we could live in your truth, we could live! thank you for opening yourself up this way, for making yourself vulnerable to the very creation you made so our hearts could be enlightened and brought to life. wow, lord!
