Matthew 9:36 When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.
I have often envisioned our Lord Jesus in this scene. Can you feel the hurt in His heart to know they were so close to truth and happiness and yet so far away. Can you imagine the tears in his eyes as the sick and possessed pressed around Him?
I can see this scene today. I see our world through the eyes television and the newspaper. There are millions clamoring for peace and contentment.
Things change yet they stay the same.
Two thousand years later Jesus still sees the crowds of this world. He sees throngs of people who are soul sick and His heart is broken.
His compassion is new every morning. I will give Him thanks in the morning, in the noon day, and the evening for I serve a God of compassion.
Be Blessed, Lynn

Lynn has wonderfully mapped out the steps we all need to walk through to develop and grow this vital relationship with Him. This was the Lord’s intent for her transformation journey all along, and His intent for you too. Here she has spelled out the spiritual truths behind the principles and talked us through how she applied them. These truths are universally applicable to us all, though as the details of our lives, situations and hearts will be different, we will apply them differently. - Reader Review from Barnes & Noble.
