What Now?

This music video is the story of our journey this past week. I made it just for you. :0) The song really hits home for me. So often we ask to see God and know His will. So often we say we want to see Jesus. Yet we forget where He said He would be.

Mother Teresa said - The dying, the crippled, the mentally ill , the unwanted, the unloved-they are Jesus in disguise. Through the poor people I have an opportunity to be 24 hours a day with Jesus.... Every AIDS victim is Jesus in a pitiful disguise; Jesus is in everyone.


Mathew 25:36-40

I was hungry and you fed me,
I was thirsty and you gave me a drink,
I was homeless and you gave me a room,
I was shivering and you gave me clothes,
I was sick and you stopped to visit,
I was in prison and you came to me.'

Then those 'sheep' are going to say, 'Master, what are you talking about? When did we ever see you hungry and feed you, thirsty and give you a drink? And when did we ever see you sick or in prison and come to you?' Then the King will say, 'I'm telling the solemn truth: Whenever you did one of these things to someone overlooked or ignored, that was me—you did it to me.'

I am so grateful for an opportunity to spend a week with Jesus. It was an amazing experience.






I saw the face of Jesus In a little orphan girl
She was standing in the corner
On the other side of the world
And I heard the voice of Jesus
Gently whisper to my heart
Didn't you say you wanted to find Me
Well, here I am, here you are

So what now
What will you do now that you've found Me?
What now
What will you do with this treasure you've found
I know I may not look like what you expected
But if you'll remember
This is right where I said I would be
You found me, what now?

And I saw the face of Jesus
Down on Sixteenth Avenue
He was sleeping in an old car
While his mom went looking for food
And I heard the voice of Jesus
Gently whisper to my soul
Didn't you say you wanted to know me
Well, here I am And it's getting cold

So what now
What will you do now that you've found Me?
What now
What will you do with this treasure you've found
I know I may not look like what you expected
But if you'll remember
This is right where I said I would be
You found me, what now?


So come and know
Come and know, know me now
Come, come and know, know me now
Oh, come and know
Come, come and know, know me now
Come, come and know, know me now

Angel,
This song has great significance for our family and our adoption! God really spoke to me through this song, and everytime I hear it I remember how I felt in that moment that He spoke to me about Anne Pearce...

Love you! (AND, I want to go next time!!)
