Psalm 44:21 says that God "knows the secrets of the heart"
I recently prayed for God to allow me to see into a person's heart. I prayed that I would see beyond the rehearsed responses that women and people in general have to certain questions and situations. As I came to bed that night, I prayed for my marriage, as I usually do. I asked God to open up Miguel's romantic eyes (typical woman, don't judge!) but instead mine were opened.
Earlier that evening we had a group of kids over the house. I worked like a dog over the previous 2 days to prepare for this evening. Well at some point during the night, he grabs my hand and kisses it. I didn't think much of it because he has done this sort of thing before however as I was praying, God revealed to me the true meaning of that kiss. The unspoken words were....I appreciate you, I realize you have worked hard, I wish I could have helped more, I love you and I am so happy being your husband- YES, I got all that out of one kiss on the hand! Now, I realize that my husband doesn't necessarily articulate his thoughts clearly enough to show me how he truly feels however, MY God could (HE knows our inner thoughts and the secrets of our hearts)and he allowed me to hear what "my" heart needed to hear!
As you go about your day, ask God to show you the unspoken words that your loved ones speak to you and always remember to Just Breathe! Reflection Corner: 1.) Are there things that you are too embarrassed to bring to God? 2.) Did you know that men do not demonstrate affection in the same way women do? Identify some ways that your mate may be showing you love today? 3.) Good Reading Resource: The Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman
