PrayFit Devotional: You Changed My Life; Mar 5, 13; Read: John 15
“As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Abide in my love.” –John 15:9
“You changed my life,” I told Mya, with a kiss, as I put her back to bed. “You changed mine,” she whispered in reply before slipping back into a deep sleep. I closed her door walked back to my room with a wry smile, my eyes welled up with tears of gratitude. For this fatigued father, sleepy words had begotten a swelled heart.
Half asleep and scarcely able to comprehend the magnitude of such a statement, Mya will probably never remember that she uttered it. But it brought me untold joy nonetheless. You see, every expression of love that she musters — every squeeze, every crinkle-nosed grin, every barely-perceptible midnight utterance of affection — impacts me deeply and profoundly. Not a single, loving gesture is too slight.
When I finally laid my head to my pillow, like Mya, I did some whispering of my own: “Lord, You changed my life.” The words, I thought, fell short. Despite His divinity, I speculated, He can’t possibly understand how much I love Him and how fortunate I feel to be numbered among His flock. Then, it occurred to me. He didn’t just change my life, He gave it. And for a Father, even when the words miss the mark, they never miss the heart. –Eric Velazquez www.prayfit.com/2013/03/
