“And it came to pass at that time, while Eli was lying down in his place, and when his eyes had begun to grow dim that he could not see,
and before the lamp of God went out, in the tabernacle of the Lord, where the ark of God was, and while Samuel was lying down to sleep,
that the Lord called Samuel. And he answered, ‘Here I am.'” 1 Samuel 3:2-4
When our youngest falls asleep on the couch, she wakes often and calls for me.
Oh Lord, may I stay close enough to hear You and respond. And here’s a simple poem . . .
You are calling out our names
may we be listening
You have words for us to speak
may our mouths be willing
may we trust You even more
respond quickly and obey
not allowing time to come between
diluting what You say.
