{Notice | Day 19 of 31}

Ready? Go.

Jesus noticed things. He noticed people. Zacchaeus in a tree. The woman in the crowd who touched the hem of His garment. The man who laid lame at the pool of Bethesda for 38 years. The 5000 people who were hungry on the mountainside. He even noticed the thief who was hanging on a cross beside Him. Here's the thing: Jesus didn’t turn a blind eye to the hard things because they were hard and uncomfortable. I don’t want to do that either. Sometimes I get confused and think Christianity is supposed to safe, comfortable, predictable. But, it isn’t. I suppose the more we know Him and trust Him, we become less likely to play it safe with Him. 

I want to be the kind of girl who notices what’s going on around me. I want to see people the way Jesus sees and love them the way He tells us to love them. What if we all asked Him to help us with that? What if we look up and look around and notice? Yeah, what if we did that.
