He hears our cries…

I was scrolling Facebook with my morning coffee when I came across this post. It touched my heart and gave me a reminder of just how wonderful our Father is!

‘I stood at the kitchen sink washing a bottle, listening to my baby cry from the living room. He was safe in his crib, his diaper had just been changed, but he was hungry. I hated hearing my baby cry, but I knew he was okay. And though he couldn’t understand it, I was preparing exactly what he needed, what he was crying for. In just a few minutes, with a full bottle in hand, I would pick him up and his cries would stop.

Standing over that kitchen sink, my heart realized how many times I have been in his place. I’ve been crying—safe and loved—but crying out to my God. My prayers shouting to Him exactly what I wanted, what I needed, but they were met with silence.

I couldn’t see Him. I didn’t recognize the work He was doing. And though I couldn’t understand it, He was preparing exactly what I needed, what I was crying for.

If you have found yourself in a season of crying out to God, wondering where He is or what He’s doing, remember that your Father in Heaven loves you more than you can imagine. He’s standing in the next room, listening to your cries, preparing what you need.

You have not been abandoned. You are not alone. Your God is at work. He hears your cries.

“So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”
(2 Corinthians 4:18, NIV’

I hope this touches someone’s heart today. Remember that He knows our every need before we even speak them.

The past few months have been complete chaos around here. We had just felt like things were getting kind of ‘normal’ when our 9 month old was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia or AML for short.

When one family member gets diagnosed with something like this it feels like the whole family has been diagnosed… it’s been a challenging situation.

Hers was actually caught before it had transitioned to leukemia so she didn’t have any of the common symptoms… you wouldn’t even have known she was sick. In fact, she had just gotten a clean bill of health the day before from her cardiologist and we had celebrated that evening with a dinner.
