Just a Glimpse

This past Saturday, thousands of people lined up and down the streets of Dollywood trying to catch of glimpse of Dolly Parton as she passed by. People stood on that path for over an hour just to make sure they would have the best vantage point. Our group was caught in the crowd, so we had no choice but to wait for the procession to end. "Here she comes," someone shouted. In less than a minute, Dolly had passed by, and people went back to their day's activities. It was as if the whole park had stopped just to catch a glimpse of Dolly.

As we made our way through the crowd, I couldn't help but wonder what the world would be like if more people would stop like that to catch a glimpse of Jesus and what He's done for us. My preacher shared my thought and voiced, "All these people are lined up today to catch a glimpse of Dolly, but how many of them will be in church tomorrow trying to catch a glimpse of Jesus?" It's something worth thinking about!

Seek ye the Lord while He may be found, call ye upon Him while He is near.
Isaiah 55:6
