You know what is so awesome about God? Well a lot of things, more things then I can even count, but something I learned today was He is always listening. Always. He knows your prayers, even before you say them. He hears your heart when you can not muster up a prayer. He hears you. When you are struggling, He hears your cries; when you are "dance on the table" happy, He hears your joyous praises and laughter. It says in John, " Then Jesus looked up and said, 'Father, thank you that you have heard me. I knew that you always hear me, but I said this for the benefit of the people standing here, that they may believe that you sent me.'"
How amazing is that? Even Jesus, Savior to all, calls to our Lord and thanks Him for hearing Him. So maybe that is what I should be doing more often; instead of complaining and crying over dumb stuff to God, maybe I should be thanking Him more often for just hearing me. Life is so crazy that a lot of the times I don't even hear myself or I am to ashamed of something that others don't hear me (because I don't tell them), but God does. He hears me no matter what. He has bigger and better things to do, but no matter what, He will always listen.
God, thank You for hearing me. Help me praise you more often for just hearing little ole me. Jesus You are, EVERYTHING. Help me hear others around me more often. Change my heart to be more caring for those right next to me, to hear what they are saying and feeling and to love and pray for them. Thank you God, for hearing me.
But those who hope in the Lord, will renew their strength. They will soar on the wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not feel faint. Isaiah 40:31
