“There You Are!”

“I will give…you…people for your life.” Isa 43:4 NKJV

Thousands have attended the Women of Faith conferences every year. Many have gone in search of hope, meaning and self-worth. After hearing one speaker after another describe God’s love for His children, an attendee sent this email: “In the movie Hook, Peter Pan had grown up, become old and overweight, and looked nothing like the Peter the lost boys knew. In the midst of the boys’ shouting that this was NOT Peter, one of the smallest boys took him by the hand and pulled him down to his level. Then he placed his hands on Peter’s face and proceeded to move the skin around, reshaping his face. The boy looked into Peter’s eyes and said, ‘There you are, Peter!’ I brought a lot with me to Women of Faith, things that only God could see. But throughout the weekend I could feel God’s hands on my face, pushing away all the ‘stuff’ I had brought. And then I could hear Him say, ‘There you are. There you are!’” Listen: God is saying the same words to you today, finding the beauty the years bury, the sparkle that time tries to take. Seeing you and loving the you He sees. Saying, “There you are. There you are.” You say, “I’m afraid I will never find someone to love me.” Don’t you believe it! God says: “Since you were precious in My sight, you have been honored, and I have loved you; therefore I will give men for you, and people for your life.” If you seek God, and reach out, God will bring to you the right people for your life.
