As individuals we all have unique qualities. It would make sense then that for each of us our FAVORITE attribute of God would be different. Some attributes to ponder would include:
I came across this verse of scripture some years ago (actually 3 years ago). I was going through a lot then; I’d just lost a cousin and I was preparing for my bar exams at the same time. To say the verse spoke to me is an understatement.
Beer Lahai Roi… the One who sees me…
This was Hagar’s name for God. I don’t know if it is also an attribute of God in the sense meant in this week’s cafe chat, but one thing I do know is that this phrase has kept me going.
Regardless of what I go through in life, I am assured that I have a God that sees me and sees what I’m going through. The sight of the Lord is not just vision…he sees my circumstance; my pain; my confusion; my joy… He feels sees even more than I do.
Jane Austen in Persuasion said that it is singularity which often makes the worst part of our suffering and I agree. Things feel worse when there is no one to share them with. But I have One who sees me.
