God, speak to my heart

The Five-Minute Friday word for today is speak. As I thought about this word, I thought about me speaking to God, in prayer, many years ago. I’m forever marked by that moment.

As I thought about this word, I thought about me speaking to God, in prayer, many years ago. I’m forever marked by that moment. God spoke to my heart, and it brought me deep, deep comfort.

God, speak to my heart

Go.

Psalm 56:8

The tears flowed, unstoppable. My throat ached from crying and praying and crying. I had nothing left in me. No words except, “God. I don’t want you to forget how I feel right now.”

Then, in the silence, his words pierced my heart. I won’t.

Was it audible? Did God really speak out loud? I couldn’t know for sure, but I heard it just the same.

A verse came to my mind. Something about a bottle of tears being collected (Psalms 56:8). It took me hours to find it. When I did, I looked at the word and laughed, “I have an ocean of tears. It’d take an ocean-sized bottle to contain all my hurt.”

I’d just had my second miscarriage. I was grieving. In that moment, and with that verse, God gave me a beautiful picture that comforted me. It was a picture of my two little children who I never got to meet, basking at a beach with Jesus. They played in the sand and the water. He explained to them of my ocean of tears. And the endless grains of unfulfilled dreams.

Stop.

Do you want to read my story?

In my story, Hope and Mercy are the names I gave my unborn children. If you’d like a copy of the story, sign up here.

God, speak to my heart

While I’ve never had an experience quite like I had then, I believe God still speaks to our hearts through his word. Reading and meditating on scripture allows his word to become more and more a part of our thinking. It’s his word that transforms.

How has God spoken to your heart?
