Jabez was finally down for his nap and I was at last down on my knees trying to connect with God before barging into a day full of overdue projects. . . He heard a one-sided outpouring of all the things immediately on my mind.
Soon I was in gear mode back in front of my computer, ready to jump into things, when I distinctly heard, “Did you take time to listen to me?”
Sigh. . . I really don’t have time for this. . . Not today. Not in the mood.
Honestly, I just really didn’t want to contemplate all of the things I was pretty sure He might have for me to think about right now.
I half-heartedly sat silent.
And then clear as anything I've ever heard, “My child, I love you.”
Just that. I love you.
