Because He Says So

Oh how he listens

not only with his ears

but with his eyes

that are connected to his heart.

Such innocence,

taking in every word

with all of him


nothing goes unnoticed.

Oh what I am learning from this precious child~

to just look up

to listen to

every word

He says.

To listen not only with my ears

but with my eyes

that are connected to my heart.

"Now then, My children, listen to Me; blessed are those who keep My ways." Proverbs 8:32

"Hold on to instruction, do not let it go; guard it well, for it is your life." Proverbs 4:13

"Follow God’s example, therefore, as dearly loved children and walk in the way of love,

just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God." Ephesians 5:1

"Dear children, do not let anyone lead you astray.

The one who does what is right is righteous, just as he is righteous." I John 3:7


Am I one of those Dear Children?

Are you one those Dear Children?

See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God!

And that is what we are!

The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know Him.

Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known.

But we know that when Christ appears, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as hH is.

All who have this hope in Him purify themselves, just as He is pure. I John 3:1-3

So thank you precious baby

for reminding me

that I am just a child

who needs to look up

to listen

with my ears

with my eyes

so I can hear

in my heart

the words of

Our Father

who art in heaven

Hallowed by thy name.

Little boy,

keep looking up

so that

Even when I, ___________, get older every day

I, _________________, will not depart from it. (Proverbs 22:9 paraphrased)
