He reaches for my hand and leads me to the kitchen. He pushes my hand toward the cabinet where I keep the peanut butter. He loves peanut butter. I make him a sandwich, he takes it and runs off. My grandson Aiden, oh how I love him.
My thoughts drift back here where I spend a lot of time with words. I pray for God to share His words with me so I can share His heart with you. I want to grow in Christ. I want us to walk so close with Him we can hear His heartbeat.
I’ve read so many blogs the past few days about writing, about the importance of words.
Words speak to the heart, words connect people.
Psalm 19:14 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditations of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer. This is my daily personal prayer. Every. Single. Day. I pray this scripture over the words of my mouth.
Words are powerful. They can bring encouragement, or they can injure someone’s soul.
I pray daily for myself, to be able to write words. Words that will bring glory to God and words that will inspire us all to desire a closer walk with Jesus.
I pray daily for my grandson Aiden, to be able to speak words. Words that will tell us what he needs and words that will tell us what he’s thinking. He has nonverbal autism.
My words weave stories of my life. Aiden’s inability to speak words weaves a quietness in my heart. I’ve always said, Aiden speaks with his heart. Just because he doesn’t talk does not mean he has nothing to say.
I still question God sometimes and ask Him to show me what His purpose is. When I seek God for Aiden, at times I just feel stuck and I don’t know how to pray. I struggle in my heart with this. I give it all to Him and know He is faithful. Do you feel stuck friend, do you struggle with the “how” of your prayer? We can seek God to show us His purpose, to align our will with His, and rest in His promise that ALL things work together for good.
Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose.
God is bigger than our circumstances. When our status changes from good to bad or bad to worse, He remains our rock. He remains unchanging. He is still our deliverer, our healer, our savior. Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever.
Today Aiden is happy and healthy. He looks at me out of the corner of his eye and giggles. He puts his arms around me and kisses me, I am blessed. There are times when even words can’t express what we want to say, so my sweet Aiden speaks with his heart.
HE SPEAKS WITH HIS HEART
He stops to smell the flowers
he’s never seen a gloomy day
He celebrates a cloudy sky
and dances in the rain
He doesn’t see your faults
or laugh at your mistakes
He speaks with his heart
and listens just the same
He keeps no account of wrongs
or forces his opinion
He sees us through eyes
with the purest of vision
What a beautiful soul
we could all possess
If we would learn from him
and simply seek to bless
I think he speaks to Jesus
and dances at His feet
He hears Him when He says
come and dance for me
