Acorns From Oakes

Seeing With Our Father's Eyes

When Words Fail…

When words fail…listening doesn’t.

When words fail…tears speak.

When words fail…nearness blesses.

When words fail…hugs help.

When words fail…hearts still connect.

When words fail…kindness won’t.

When words fail…friendship remains.

When words fail…helpful deeds lift.

When words fail…love still shines through.

When words fail…memories sustain.

When words fail…God is near.

   He hears the cries of our hearts when we cannot speak. He shows up when we are ready to give up. When we come to the end, He shows us there is more. It may be that in our silent agony, He reveals more to us than we ever would have known.

When words fail it is hard. Sometimes very, very hard. But our Father God is able and willing for just such times. Look for Him. Lean on Him. Help one another to Him.
