The King and His Compassion — 10 Comments

  1. Love this! I was trying to decide which is my favorite name for Him … Kinsman/Redeemer? Shepherd? … no, wait! Bread of Life?

    OKay, I love them all and am grateful for all these instances of His personality.

    • Each name brings such a beautiful part of the truth of who He is to us. Some moments I am the lamb needing the shepherd; others, I am Ruth needing a Boaz who redeems what was taken and broken. Always I need the Bread of Life – how blessed we are, Jerralea, that someone is all this and more to us! Shalom! ~ Maryleigh

  2. Powerful images, as He always shows us when our eyes are open, when our hearts are open. Your words to describe the Christ are beautifully said and arranged, Maryleigh.
    I love the idea of reading the Bible from Revelation and chronologically-reversed. Another year, I may look that one up! I am going chronologically but from Genesis with “Sweeter than Honey Devotional.”

    • The one I used and my son used was green – Tyndale House publishing. The first reading was such a beautiful experience. I am looking forward to finding so much I missed the first time! Shalom, Linda! ~ Maryleigh

    • There is a difference, sometimes, between reading and meeting Jesus in the verses – and reading it as a roadmap to what-might-be’s. If I’m not reading it to “draw closer,” I think I read blind and miss all the soul revelations!

  3. Bit late stopping by. I was staying with the grandson out of town while his parents were away on business trip. Your post makes me want to go back and read Revelations again. Great words.

    • Time with our grands is such soul beautiful time! What a blessing! So glad you stopped by. Thank you for your kind words!
