It was early.
I woke up this morning in the quiet of my house, slipped out of bed to the living room and wrapped myself in a soft throw.
There, I simply sat in the stillness.
I’ve been in a busy season and quiet moments are rare. My mind often races to match the pace of my life. To be honest, I wanted to fill that silence up with words or a prayer about things pressing on my heart. Instead I sensed my Heavenly Father asking me to remain quiet.
That’s when this scripture became real.
He bends down to listen to you. To me.
As I sat in silence, my words never came, and yet he heard every word I didn’t say. He heard how much I loved him. He heard me as I placed my life and ministry and family in his hands. He listened as I found peace just sitting in his presence.
Gratitude flooded my heart. Those feelings of thankfulness were as genuine a prayer as I could have shared with my loving Father.
He bends down to listen to you.
Sit with him. Don’t be afraid of the silence.
Let all your cares fall away, if only for a moment, and be filled.
Sometimes we just don’t have the words.
Scripture can become our most powerful prayers. This free Ebook is just for you. Let the words soak in that silent time and become truth.

Good stuff – I needed to hear this today. Thanks again!
I have been meditating on the magnitude of that statement. “He (God Almighty, Eternal Father)bends down to listen,” to you, to me, to all of us…if we only come. He is waiting for us to come and be in Him! No striving, not having to work a formula, just resting in Him. How awesome is the God we serve!
I love the picture of God “bending down to listen”. It shows His softness, caring, gentleness, and love. I will use this in my prayers to help me remember where He is and what He is doing. Thanks you!
I’ve been spending time in Micah and worrying if God has turned his face. Are we in that time? God worked some words on my heart and I wrote about it (scheduled late February). This post is beautiful for my soul. It’s hope. It’s what is desperately needed today. Hope. God bends down to listen. What a powerful image. Love your heart and your light. Have an amazing weekend.
My prayer is that during this time, we are driven to our knees in prayer, and may that begin with me. I’m just as troubled, Carolina, and so grateful that we can find comfort, encouragement, truth, and direction. Blessings, friend!
