Getting to Know You Better

"But for a brief moment I abandoned you, but with deep compassion I will bring you back" (Isaiah 54:7).

Compassion-" a feeling of deep sympathy and sorrow for another who is stricken by misfortune, accompanied by a strong desire to alleviate the suffering" (Dictionary.com).

God feels deep sympathy for ME. Me?! He feels deep sympathy for me like He did for Matthew. 
"As Jesus went on from there, he saw a man named Matthew sitting at the tax collector's booth. "Follow Me," He told him, and Matthew got up  and followed Him" (Matthew 9:9). Matthew must've had a lot of faith to leave right then. Jesus must've had a smile on His face as He called His son in. 

I am grateful to see a tidbit of what He is like.
