"Jesus is Broken in My Heart"

"Jesus is Broken in My Heart" Hope told me today. Emma and Carter had just left for piano lessons and Elijah was at Nana and Papa's house. It was one of those God ordained moments that I almost shrugged off and played up as silly...when I actually paused and listened to that inner voice that said "pursue this conversation further." I walked by her as she was laying on the couch and she said "I am playing doctor ... Jesus is broken in my heart" As I assured her that the true Jesus could never be "broken" in our hearts that He comes to heal our hearts from sin, she pondered that for our moment and said I want the not broken Jesus in my heart. So we talked a little bit more and I asked her if she wanted to follow me in prayer. As my sweet little red headed 3 year old prayed with me I realized that all of the events of this ordinary day were ordained by the amazing God of the universe. He knew that for a rare moment, Hope and I would be alone together and able to talk. For a rare moment...this "busy" mom would take a moment to actually listen to the prompting of the Holy Spirit and pursue the things that matter. Our family just grew bigger eternally...the angels are rejoicing, a new name has been added to the Book of Life and this ordinary, sinful mommy is humbled by the way our almighty God of the universe works in extraordinary ways. Hopey I love you so much and our Awesome God has an even greater, deeper love for you precious one.
