Tired Ears


Being with my nieces last week brought back so many memories of my girls at that wonderful age of two. All of the children on this side of the family share one "talent", they start talking early and they never stop. :) Between the four of them, my ears hurt by the time Thursday afternoon rolled around.

At times, it seemed each one needed something totally different from the other. Morgan would need to hear "good job" while Mia wanted someone to hold her. Emma just wanted a little peace and quiet and Chloe, well Chloe just wanted to talk. :) I loved every minute.

This morning I was sitting with God thinking about several specific situations. Some in our family and some not. Can I just be totally honest here?

He absolutely amazes me.

God doesn't slumber or sleep. Unlike me, He is never overwhelmed with all these children demanding His attention. He is adequate to supply each and every need I know off AND the ones I'm not even aware of.

This is the verse He gave me last week in the middle of taking care of all those beautiful girls.



Isaiah 59:1

Behold, the Lord's hand is not shortened that it cannot save, or His ear dull that it cannot hear." (ESV)

I pray that today you know, really know that God's arm is long enough to reach you, and that His hearing is as sharp as ever. He hears you sweet friend, slow down and listen for His response.

Beautiful post!! I'm so thankful that He hears each of us perfectly. Even when we don't know the words to use, He still hears the cry of our heart!!

Praise Him!!

Oh, this is good! I swear my ears will fall off sometimes if I hear one more "Hey, Mama?!?!" But God is good to remind me that this precious season will be gone before I know it!
