I believe God hears Rory's voice. Today. Right now. This very moment. God bends down ~ how beautiful is that~ that our great Jehovah bends down, gets really really close, leans in, and listens. He listens to Rory's voice because he hears Rory's heart.
And Rory has quite a talkative heart. He visits with God a lot. His mama has made him a special prayer board. And she prays with Rory every single day. Rory thanks God for the things he enjoys, especially those Panera Bread soufflés. He asks God to help him grow and learn to love Him more every day. He also prays for others, for those that he loves dearly, and those that need some special help. You can even see my name on that special list! Yet at the top of his list of prayers for help you will see these words : To find my Voice.
I think Rory was aptly named. For I believe one day, not only will he find his voice, but he will ROAR! And he will use that voice to glorify God, and to speak of the great things God has done, for God is giving Rory a story to tell. A story that ultimately will be told by Rory ~ in his own voice ~ to others. They will listen, their hearts will be stirred within, and they will come to know and worship the great God who bends down to listen, the all powerful Jehovah God who hears hearts.
As long as we have breath ~ our God will hear our heart. He will bend down to hear the heart that is crying out to Him, singing to Him, whispering to Him. What a blessing!
Thank you Monica, Scott and Rory for allowing me to be a part of your journey. I am yours in prayer ~ as long as I have breath. (Photo and graphic design credit to Monica)
