He Looks At Me

Psalm 40:1
I waited patiently for the Lord to help me, and he turned to me and heard my cry.

.. I got this scripture in one of the email that Denise over at Shorty Bears Place sends and it struck me this morning that we we cry out to the Lord, He turns His eyes toward us.............. I do not read any other translation than the King James but I have to admit that when reading the other translations on this scripture I do like how this one reads.............. How awesome to think that the God of the Universe turns and looks my way when I cry out His name............ I need to cry out His name more often.............................

I have heard this before and have it written in my bible and it is always worth repeating:
Mercy is when we don’t get what we deserve.
Justice is when we get what we do deserve
Grace is when we get what we do not deserve.
