When your child wants to tell you a secret, she may climb into your lap, cup her hands around your ear, and then whisper in such a way that you are the only person on earth who hears what she has to say.
God is waiting for you to crawl into his lap.
You may have experienced some – or all – of the following: pain, resentment, abandonment, trauma, betrayal, and abuse. You have cried for help until you can cry no more. You just don’t have the energy. At best, you might be able to force a whisper.
That’s enough. If all you have left is a whisper, God will hear that whisper.
The psalmist proclaimed, “You know what I long for, Lord; you hear my every sigh” (Psalm 38:9).
Recovery Step: Mark Batterson wrote, “Those who dance are thought mad by those who hear not the music.” Translation: Bring your whispers to God; they are not for anyone else’s ears.
