your sigh, your whisper, your prayer


When a tear is wept by you, think not your Father does not behold; for, “Like as a father pities his children so the Lord pities them that fear Him.” Your sigh is able to move the heart of Jehovah; your whisper can incline His ear unto you; your prayer can stay His hands; your faith can move His arm. Oh! think not that God sits on high in an eternal slumber, taking no account of you. (Charles H. Spurgeon)

The Lord is like a father to his children,
    tender and compassionate to those who fear him.
For he knows how weak we are;
 he remembers we are only dust.

Psalm 103:13 

Child of God, He knows. He knows you are but dust. He knows when you weep with deep sorrow, and when you cry with quiet hurt. He beholds each tear, and in both joy-filled moments and profound heartache, He cares for you as the perfect father would. He cares as no earthly father ever has, or ever could.

Your weakness He answers with tenderness, and your dust-ness He tends with compassion. His tenderness is saturated with insight and foresight, and His compassion is rich and full.

Child of God, your sigh, your whisper, your prayer never, never goes unnoticed.


About Jill

I'm a wife, mom to three beautiful children, and work as children's ministry director at Redeemer PCA in Athens, GA, a place our family treasures as our church home. It's been thirty years since the Lord saved me, and to this day I'm astounded at His steadfast love shed upon unfaithful me. My hope would be that I might speak and write in ways God would use to soften hearts toward Him, that we would together be enamored by the glorious beauty of Jesus and awakened to His love unimagined. Thanks so much for reading!
