Because I really believe you do. I’ve heard you. And I love the sound of your voice. The way it comes through other people. The way it rests in my mind as a clear and truthful thought. The way is rushes past me like the wind and raises goose bumps on my skin. The way it presses into my heart and I can’t decide if it hurts or feels wonderfully alive. This is how I’m hearing you now. Is it meant to feel like a burden? Cause it does. But not the heavy kind, not the kind that weighs me down. It’s more like it’s stirring me toward something. Awakening within me something I didn’t know existed. Is this what you mean by my yoke is easy and my burden is light? That with you, there is still a guiding and there are still burdens to bear, but they aren’t heavy like the weight of the world and all its expectations. I wonder if it’s because the burdens we carry in Truth bring life instead of death? Or maybe it’s because you carry them with us? Or maybe both. When I hear the needs of others, my heart is stirred to respond, to be available. Often these are small things, and the consequences of ignoring or actively responding are minor. But this one is big. The need is great and the consequences are far reaching. It changes everything. It feels risky, and out of our comfort zone. Yet there is something about the hard that feels appealing. Because I love the things in my life that bring me to my knees. I appreciate the challenges that keep me seeking you. I love how the things that bring the most life are often the most difficult. All the good within me wants to say Yes! But everything I’ve been cautioned in tells me to hesitate. To think twice. To maybe say no. This is why I need to hear from you. I know that saying yes to this is a good thing. It’s consistent with your word. It’s what you’ve called your people to. But I don’t want to assume that just because it’s good, it’s right. For our family, for this time, for this need. This is why I need to hear from you. Because I’m not sure I have the strength to say yes without a clear invitation from you. And so, I am praying. I am listening. I am seeking. I am believing. That you will speak to your daughter. That you will make yourself known. That you will show this family how to respond in faith to this need.
