The Weekend Brew: He Hears My Longing — 30 Comments

  1. {sigh} Thank you for sharing this verse. I haven’t seen it before, at least that I remember. Lately, I have felt I was suffocating under the ache of longing – the last couple days have been a relief – but it just takes a few words to change it all. I was just overwhelmed, yet again, with the ache. burden. longing. feelings of being overwhelmed. suffocated. unheard.

    Of course it’s Sunday night. Heading into a new week. Days ahead I want to focus on the joy of giving – I really NEEDED to hear this. I want to hang onto the truth He hears even the cries to heavy to speak. He knows. Thank you.

    • April, I am thankful that the Lord used this post to minister to your heart. I pray that He will reassure you over and over again that He is close to you, and hears your every cry — spoken or unspoken.

  2. Great post Barbie! There have been so many times in my life that the Lord has definitely heard the groanings of my heart. There are just times when we have no words to utter but he understands. Just another reason He is so awesome! Happy week!

  3. Beautiful verse! This is such a great reminder of how close God is. One of my favorite passages is from Psalm 139
    1 O Lord, you have searched me
        and you know me.
    2 You know when I sit and when I rise;
        you perceive my thoughts from afar.
    3 You discern my going out and my lying down;
        you are familiar with all my ways.
    4 Before a word is on my tongue
        you know it completely, O Lord.

  4. What a comforting thought, huh, my friend. That He hears our every whisper, our faintest cries, our deepest desires. That He is for us and not against us….and that (whether it looks like it or not) The God of The Universe is on our side! Blessings this Sunday, Jen

  5. I am going to highlight this verse today. I am so comforted by this simple reminder: “He is closer than the air you breathe, closer then the sighs from deep within.” Thank you Barbie for allowing Him to speak to you and through you.

  6. “He is closer than the air you breathe…” ~ I love this and am so thankful that whether I am hurting or grateful beyond words, he knows my heart. He hears us and loves us. What an awesome, perfect God!! 🙂 Have a beautiful, blessed day!!

  7. Oh, Barbie
    Yes, He is sooo close. He lives His life in our freshly brewed new born spirits. It amazes me to think that He truly is real-life closer than our breaths and sighs of our souls. WOW!
    Have a wonderful Sunday.

    • I was able to minister at the prayer line today, and share this encouragement with a young woman. It is so comforting to know even when we cannot express with words, God hears! Bless you my friend!
