Last night as about thirty of us danced in the dark once again, no one seemed to miss the electricity. Perhaps it’s because the Light of God was shining brightly as we loudly, passionately and whole-heartily sang Him notice of our thanks, love and worship. I suppose if there had been electricity it wouldn’t have changed anything, but somehow, as it was, it felt primitively pure and pleasing to Him.
And when I saw 6 year old Lovely (yes, that really is her name) raising her arms and closing her eyes, unprompted by anyone else, I knew without a doubt I was surrounded by holiness. These orphans are dirty, worm-infested, scabies-afflicted, in mismatched clothes and to worldly eyes, nothing to look at. But oh what a different perspective our Daddy has. He was visiting us with His presence, pleasure and favor.
The LORD doesn't see things the way you see them. People judge by outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart. 1 Samuel 16:7
