Have you ever thought about how Jesus didn't pass through anywhere and not get involved. I wonder how the disciples felt about that? I have been out with people that always seem to be busy talking to other people they run into and don't seem to have time for me. I know that is frustrating to me and so I wonder how the disciples felt when ever they went into a new town and people came up to Jesus and wanted Him all the time. To think that when they entered a town people would come and line the road just to get a glimpse of Him. They didn't go anywhere unnoticed. I mean Zacchaeus climbed a tree just to get a glimpse of Jesus. And then can you imagine the feelings he had when Jesus stopped under the tree, looked up and told him to come down because He was going to come over to his house. Wow. I know my heart would have been pounding really hard with excitement and probably some concern too. Now, here is Jesus sitting in Zacchaeus's home, I can't imagine what was going through his mind. To think that Zacchaeus was inviting Jesus to come and take a load off and in his house sat the very one who could take away all his troubles. I think that is pretty amazing! Then Zacchaeus told the Lord he was going to give half of his stuff away to the poor and if he cheated anyone he would pay them back four times the amount. I think that is so cool how he was willing and eager to do what he knew in his heart was the right thing to do. There seemed to be no resistance on his part. I know that is hard for me sometimes to do what the Spirit asks me to do the moment He asks me to do it, but I get encouragement from Zacchaeus this morning.
I am a princess! I have been married to the love of my life for 17 years. We have been blessed with 3 beautiful children. I am able to stay at home with them and train them in the ways of the Lord. I throw some school in there too ;) I never thought I would be where I am at today, but would not trade one moment of my life. My kids are teaching me to slow down and to enjoy the little things again. I love reading, and am learning to dance like David danced!
