Out of the Mouths of Babes

“Please, ‘ttention – ‘ttention, please.” My two-year old rocked back and forth holding my bookmark like a microphone, politely asking for my “attention.” I grinned at her, continuing to the fridge to refill her sippy cup.

“Mommy! ‘ttention, please!” Grace’s plea became a demand. I turned to face her.

“You want my attention?”

“Yes!” She grinned, holding her bookmark microphone up high. That’s when I saw it. Displayed across the marker that holds my place in the Bible were the words –

The Lord is my light and salvation – whom shall I fear?

Psalm 27:1

Chuckling, I whispered to God, “Okay, Lord. You have my attention.”

What are you facing today? Could God be trying to gain your attention, too?
