“Because he bends down to listen, I will pray as long as I have breath!”

God Bends Down to Listen

I was thinking the other day about Fulton’s lift. Twice a day, once in the morning and once at night, he’s lifted in and out of his bed. It looks a little scary with him being suspended in air. All I know is it would freak me out, but he takes it in stride. As I pictured him in the corner of that little room, being picked up and moved back and forth between his bed and chair, I wondered how he faces it every day. How does he keep that smile? The answer is simple yet profound; God is there with His mighty presence to help him cope. What a beautiful truth!

I found a verse the other day that relates to this, and I’ve been thinking about it all week long. The Psalmist said, “Because he bends down to listen, I will pray as long as I have breath!” (Psalm 116:2) Think of it, the Almighty God, who merely spoke and the world was created. The God who holds all things together by His power, bends down to help Fulton as he faces the many challenges.

Because of the virus, we haven’t been able to see Fulton for several months. It’s painful not knowing when we’ll see him again. But then I think of the Lord in that little room, bending over to listen to Fulton and help him. What a beautiful site!

Your Friend,

    I pray that GOD will clean our planet of this virus soon so you and Fulton can reunite. There are so many people who have not held each other, hugged
    or even seen those they love in person for months.

    May God give you more wisdom, energy and strength than ever.

  2. What a beautiful picture of God’s tender love for us. Thank you for this reminding us of this encouraging truth!

  3. May God give you a double portion of patience and love today Dawson! That verse literally took my breath away. Such faith!👆🙌🙏

  4. Oh Dawson, the strength & love that our Precious Lord pours out to Fulton & y’all brings tears to my eyes. The imagery of Him bending over Fulton is beautiful. Thinking how He lifts him up, holding him, talking to him. I know it’s so hard not to touch, hug ,talk. Praying this covid will soon end. How’s the learning to talk through the device coming? Give Ruth Hill my love. God bless y’all ❤🙏

  5. Dawson,

    May our powerful Lord continue to lift your spirits towards Him.

    My prayers remain for Fulton, you and Ruth, and your extended family.

    Also continued prayers for the youth of this world,

    Jim Nypen
