Tenderly Pursued by Immanuel

2 Corinthians 5:18-20 (New Living Translation)

And all of this is a gift from God, who brought us back to himself through Christ. And God has given us this task of reconciling people to him. For God was in Christ, reconciling the world to himself, no longer counting people’s sins against them. And he gave us this wonderful message of reconciliation. So we are Christ’s ambassadors; God is making his appeal through us. We speak for Christ when we plead, “Come back to God!”

Jennifer spoke at the conference I went to this summer in North Carolina. She's a very special woman. When I shook her hand, I was struck by how beautiful she is inside and out. Jesus shines through her.

Here's a little about here from her website:

“It is well with my soul.”

For Jennifer Rothschild, these words are much more than the lyrics from a familiar hymn; they represent a foundation upon which many life lessons have been learned…in the dark

At the young age of fifteen, Jennifer was diagnosed with a rare, degenerative eye disease that would eventually steal her sight. It was more than a turning point for the Miami, Fl, native. Her dreams of becoming a commercial artist and cartoonist faded. Words and music have replaced her canvas and palette for more than 25 years.

I hope the words she spoke today rang true in your heart today like it did in mine. I'm so thankful for how God has been reminding me of His love for me. He loves you, too.

You are tenderly pursued. God is wooing you to Him. How will you respond?
