This song has really been on my heart recently. When was the last time you really stopped to take a look around. Every single person around you has a story, they have their own struggles and heartaches, they have their own issues, yet each one of them is extremely valuable to God.
Even with the whole Casey Anthony thing, do we see her through our human eyes? Do we secretly hope that she gets what she deserves? Do we see a lying sociopath who miraculously got away with murder?
Or do we see her through God’s eyes? God sacrificed himself for her sake, too. She may or may not have murdered her daughter, but she definitely is guilty of being a horrible mother. But I believe God still views her as one of his image bearers who has become seriously tainted. Yes, she has some serious issues and needs mental help, but she’s never going to live a “normal” life again. She may never even know love again in her life.
The Lord does not delay His promise, as some understand delay, but is patient with you, not wanting any to perish, but all to come to repentance. 2 Peter 3:9
