I was so interested in the combination of music and signing that I did a little research to understand more clearly the signs. And I learned something that I found profound. Although the song's lyrics are "hear my heartbeat," the sign he uses is more accurately translated "listen" which I think is a delightful plea to understand deeply what he longs to communicate.
Do we really listen? To those we love? Family? Friends? Neighbors? Church family? Most importantly, do we lean in close to listen to God?
Do we remember that God is always listening to us, whether or not we think of the musing of our hearts or the words on our lips as prayer, because God loves us even before we acknowledge God, and is attuned to us.
What are you longing to tell God? What are you longing to hear from God? What energy are you willing to commit to praying and listening?
Beloved God, give me listening ears, seeing eyes, a mercy-filled heart for those I love, for those You love, for all Your Children. AMEN
