He Knows

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

    Oh, this post just made me sigh and smile. Yes, God indeed knows the things we love and take delight in, and isn’t it wonderful when He shows them to us? And yes, even more wonderful when we take the time to take our eyes off our iPhone/iPods/iPads, take the buds out of our ears,remain still and look and listen. One very, VERY early morning, I sat on my back porch with a hot cup of coffee, just staring at the starry sky — and suddenly, I saw a falling star!! I’ve seen three in my lifetime, and God knows how much I love them!! I think we, as a society, spend much too much time on electronic stuff, computer generated pictures, when we have THE REAL THING right before our very eyes.

    What a breathtaking picture you have in this post. Did you take it?

    Thanks for sharing your words, your picture, your heart.
