Posted on November 6, 2019 The God Who Sees!

Genesis 16:13 “She [Hagar] gave this name to the LORD who spoke to her: “You are the God who sees me,” for she said, “I have now seen the One who sees me.”

I am reading a book called the The God Who Sees: Immigrants, the Bible, and the Journey to Belongby Karen Gonzalez who herself was an immigrant, and now works with immigrants through her role with World Relief.  I had picked it up because one of my relational touch points with God is that He does see.  I am grateful that just as He saw Hagar (an ethnic minority woman, alone and pregnant and later with a child and no place to call home), He saw and cared for the ethnic minority women and children who had no home, by starting the House of Love more than 20 years ago.  That very first child who came was Da—and God has faithfully cared for her all these years.  She has now graduated from Bible college, and she is working in a job she loves, plus getting married October 12th and will then be moving into her own home.  Rejoice with me in God’s goodness to her!

Prayer and Praise God continues to see!  I am grateful that He sees (and knows!) each of the children who come to the House of Blessing, House of Love or the CDPD.
