When my son Aaron, who is now 18 was just 6 years old I took this picture of him. I was inside the house and looked out of our big window and he was standing in front of it with his head up and mouth open trying to catch the melting snow that was dripping from the gutter.
Gross, I know, but I have always loved this picture. He never did know I was inside taking pictures of him. You can’t see it on here, but he had splashes of the melted snow running down his cheeks.
I love this verse in 1 Samuel 3:19
The LORD was with Samuel as he grew up, and he let none of His words fall to the ground.
Samuel listened to God and took his words to heart. My Bible commentary explains it that Samuel knew God’s words to be trustworthy.
How serious do we take our Heavenly Father when He speaks to us? When He speaks to us through the Bible, or a song, through the Holy Spirit, a sermon or another person. Do we allow His words to sink deep into our heart or do we nonchalantly allow them to fall to the ground?
If you have heard from the Lord, know that He does not a waste His words. Let not one of His words fall to the ground past your heart.
As an open-mouthed kid trying to catch snowflakes, open your heart, receive what God says & allow it to melt into your life. Tweet this now
