I got up at 5:10 a.m. like I normally do for my quiet time. After a few weeks of what I call unproductive quiet time, I had a come to Jesus meeting with the man himself. “I don’t feel you. I feel like you’re a million miles away and I keep telling you this but all I hear are crickets. Are you even there?”
A client that I was meeting with that day messaged me and asked if Yoga and Music was a thing because she’s really been into this worship album by Maverick City Music. She then sent me the Real Thing youtube video.
I sat in the Publix parking lot, tears streaming down my face because it was God’s answer to my questions from earlier. He was speaking directly to me:
“Baby steps my child
To you it may be nothing, but you make Daddy proud
Your weakness is only my strength
I know you’ve got your questions
but I’m closer than you think, I promise."
That morning I was telling him I didn’t feel him and by the end of the song, I was overwhelmed by his love for me.
It blows my mind that the Creator of the Universe 1. Wants to speak to me. 2. Would orchestrate a scenario to where I could hear him. - He’s always speaking, I just don't always listen. I love that he knows that and still pursues a conversation with me.
“I see you right where you are and
I’m holding on to your heart.”
This song has been on repeat for weeks.
