Hello! From the middle of a growth spurt. I’m that mama whose been breastfeeding all morning and counting down to nap time, that’s if the girls allow. They have this deal, where one takes a nap and the other keeps the sleepy-in-desperate-need-of-a nap- mama company. This seems like a legit plan to keep me from getting bored, after all, they are pretty good entertainers.
In the midst of it all, the conversations that I have with Miss K, are so precious. One of the things that I am really enjoying in this season is that she can communicate what’s on her heart and how she feels.
One evening as I burped Miss Ky seated on my bed. Miss K came to keep us company and begun to knock on the head board smiling. Below is the conversation that followed:
Me: “When Jesus knocks at the door of your heart, what do you say?”
Miss K: “Karibu!” (welcome)
Me: “What do you tell him?”
Miss K: “You can have my heart”
Me: “Yes *smiles* and your whole life”
Miss K: “Yes. And Ngwacii?” (and sweet potatoes?)
Me: Yes and Ngwacii.
This verse came alive for me.
Miss K understands that Jesus wants her heart. Over and above that, she longs to cultivate a relationship with Him. She desires to share the normal things of her life with Him too. On this particular day, sweet potatoes happened to be what she wanted to share.
The kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these. My prayer is that I will create an environment where she can encounter the Lord. That I will continue to speak His truth to her, and let her pursue Jesus.
I’m challenged to take time out and have a meal as I pray and let God speak to me.
Would you share a meal with Him today? Take time out to hear Him speak.
