When Answers Are Forgotten….

“The LORD has heard my plea; the LORD accepts my prayer.” Psalm 6:9 (ESV)

Happens every day….simple words uttered. Some carelessly others crafted from deep thought. Whispers from weary souls. Precious to our Sweet Jesus – prayers offered up to the One who hears, sees and knows our hearts. Not a word is wasted. No concern too small. No request too large. Conversations with our all Mighty and Powerful God.

Reminded today of words offered over the past few weeks. Answers given right before my eyes, and I almost missed them. Prayers for strength, comfort and peace for dear friends grieving loss. Prayers for ease of sleep for one struggling. Prayers for wisdom and discernment for decisions that lay ahead. Prayers for deadlines and projects that overwhelm. Prayers for creativity when minds are empty. Prayers for opening of eyes to the truth.

My list could go on forever….bet yours could too. We ask for much; God overflows us with abundance and we somehow move on totally missing it. Real issue perhaps is our reluctance to slow down enough to breathe “thanks.” Neglecting the Giver of all things in the midst of doing life.

Don’t know about you, but it’s moments like this when I get just a glimpse of God’s goodness my heart melts. How could our Creator God be so intimately involved in the seemingly insignificance of our days? When does He find time to hear all our rambling requests? How does He do it day after day – carrying our burdens?

We so easily take what He gives, forget what He does and fail to utter thanks and yet, God never leaves or fails to listen again. He longs for conversation – plain talk – sharing our hearts with Him. God enjoys the sound of our voice calling out to Him rather than running to someone else.

Incredible? Absolutely. Mysterious? Yes. Incomprehensible? You better believe it. What we can’t explain or understand of One who demonstrates such deep love towards me, you and the whole world is beyond our thinking. Why He would chose to draw so close is beyond our comprehension. Wonder how we could ignore the sweetest invitation ever to pour out our heart at His feet?

“Father, You lean in to hear what we say and shower us with Your answers at just the right time. The beauty of Your holiness and wisdom leads us every step of the way.”

For His Glory
