How often have you heard this phrase? Or better yet, how often have you used this phrase?
Having kids, I often find myself asking them to be specific when making a request. Because of course, I’m not a mind reader and no, I actually don’t know what, or where, that thing is – or to what you are actually referring…
Sometimes, I think they are vague with me just for laughs, because I can get a little flustered. Other times, I realize they truly can’t get the words out.
Happens to the best of us.
I’m so glad that God is so patient. I know that He wants us to be specific. But, aren’t there times, when we just can’t get the words out? He still hears and knows, I believe.
I do my best to be specific in my prayers and confessions. But there are times, when words evade me. Whether it’s just the tears that flow wordlessly, I find comfort and solace knowing that He still hears what my heart utters, though my lips cannot find the words to say.
This helps me to grant a little grace to my giggly kiddos who ask me where the thingy is? Or if I remember the time that one thing happened that was really funny?
