He bends down

{april 25}
"He bends down to listen ..."
isn't that beautiful?
a father-child picture. tender.
His ear inclined and our prayers whispered.
God, not only almighty, but available and approachable.
God leaning in.
God listening.
God loving.
maybe, sometimes, it feels like no one else wants to hear.
i understand.
but, dear one, this image ---
your Jesus bending down ...
hearing your heart.
holding your hurt.
rest there and realize even your softest whispers are heard.
