I’ve been looking at this photo for the last hour. This beauty’s name is Teresa (pronounced Teressa). She has leprosy, and we met her when we were visiting the leprosy unit of the hospital in India. This is actually the second time, so we are old friends now. It’s one of my favorite places in the world.
I look at this photo and I see Jesus.
I know you see Him. Everybody does. All the time I hear people say they see Jesus in this photo (or any number of similar photos of the leper, the orphan, the widow, the helpless). You can’t miss Him.
Except that you can.
I invite you to look again.
Jesus is Teresa.
I go to the leprosy unit not to be Him, but to seek Him. When I do, I always find him waiting for me, and we hold onto each other, and He heals me.
You will seek Me and find Me when you seek Me with all your heart. – Jeremiah 29:13
