I am always so amazed and touched when God reaches down into my day and sends me a personal word. It could simply be a verse that seems to jump off the page or a devotional that leaves me feeling it was written just for me. It’s even happened with a sermon or a note from a friend. Today it happened in a quick little paragraph I pick up on very busy morning. Just a thought that hit the spot and made me feel like He was there watching me and feeling for how I felt. That is so encouraging!
Sometimes I forget how far empathy can go in relating our love. Just a listening ear and a heart-felt nod of understanding to someone else’s dilemma. Stopping what I’m doing to look in the eyes of the child speaking and touch them while they tell me their tale. I quick word of encouragement for their ears alone. I wish I had done more of that along the way. Maybe I did and just don’t remember.
Either way, God seems never to forget these things, or neglect them. I love that He cares for us in our frailties. What an awesome God we serve!
