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" (

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.
