It isn’t just the big answers I hear…sometimes, I hear God’s answers to me in the littlest of things–things that only HE knows I think about.
Like the blue bird–I saw one flit across the road in front of my car the other day. He knows I look for them. He knows I find hope for spring in seeing them. He knows how I love the deep, rich blue color. He knows I sigh, when I see them.
Or the first, new leaf-buds on our trees–my Heavenly Father knows how I search for them and long for winter’s end. He knows I am like a kid in a candy store, seeing the new growth, springing fresh and new. He knows that it never gets old for me.
When a tumbleweed blows across my path, God knows that I grin from ear to ear. There’s something about a tumbleweed that I dearly love.
Or when the geese fly over, He knows I will turn off all sounds in the car (A/C or heater and radio) and roll down my windows. He knows I strain to hear them honk. He knows I watch for them all year-long.
He knows how I listen for the sounds of the first snow-melt in Rocky Mountain National Park, how the sound of an elk bugling makes my heart leap, how the breath of my children sleeping amazes me…He knows.
And sometimes, if we look and listen, we notice that He knows. For a tiny moment, we feel the nearness and fellowship of God, who walks with us daily and woos us to Him. I believe that is why being still and knowing that He is God is life-giving, life-renewing and subtle conversation with the Living LORD. Nothing like knowing that He knows…us.
“THE HEAVENS declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows and proclaims His handiwork. Day after day pours forth speech, and night after night shows forth knowledge.”
Psalm 19:1-2 AMP
