Do my questions perplex or offend Christ?

1:05 PM

I couldn’t figure out what brought him more pleasure the untwisting of the small cap or the drinking in of fresh cold water.  My littlest sat for minutes on end taking the cap on and off.  Tickled, excited, determined, and full of self-pride of his accomplishment and newfound discovery.  Intently I fixated my eyes upon his tiny hands.  A loose grip and tiny fingers toyed with the small cap.  Eyes filled with wonder and amazement.  He drank deep even to the point of water dripping down chin, sliding down cheeks, and spilling over into his lap. 




This must be what it feels like to unlock something holding such precious refreshing liquid.  I feel as though this is where I am in my journey with the Holy One.  This twisting and untwisting of thoughts and what I held to be truth leaves me speechless.  His grace and love are being revealed in ways I never dreamt possible, challenging the very essence of who I am and everything I thought I was.  



Wide-eyed and full of excitement I persevere through tedious twisting and untwisting. I know now more than ever the unlocking of truth, real truth, and His upside down backwards truth is refreshing.  

If you see my fidgeting my hands, open handed, outstretched to heaven it is because I am learning to refine my spiritual motor skills.  My eyes are focusing on the small little caps in my life.  Caps that have kept liquid love from pouring over me.

The only thing my littlest couldn’t quite grasp was the tightening of the cap after he had drunk deeply, for this he needed my help.  As I continue on this quest of wandering and wondering into His presence, I am sure I will need the grip of sweet kind Holy spirit to retighten the cap of grace on my life. I do not want loose any of the sweet truth she gives.  I only want to drink deep and pour it over heavy hearts and others who for far to long lived under the caps of disillusionment, false truths, confused remarks of others, and took truth at face value instead of seeking the face of Truth for ourselves. 

I can hear her calling.  Wisdom.  She is seated in the depth of our King’s heart.  I cannot truly find myself or the wisdom I need for life without entering the chambers of His heart.  Here in the secret chambers, I can ask all the questions I want.  It is here, in the secret,  he will answer me. 

Do you often wonder if your questions perplex or 
offend the heart of our Creator?

I think at one point I did.  Perhaps that is why for far too long I haven’t really heard from His voice, revelatory truth.  I have read truth written in books, spoken in sermons, and sung in songs, and these are valuable.  However, they do not replace hearing my Beloved’s voice for myself.  

Your curiousness, your wonderment, your questions, your hunger for knowledge fuels His delight in you.  He is intrigued with you, not offended by you.  As with my little ones, their questions reveal their love, eagerness, their trust, and their enthusiasm to learn.  Their questions bring value to my words. They listen and apply the answer to their lives, which brings me honor and respect. I believe the same principle applies with our heavenly Father.  

When you inquire of the Lord you bring honor to Him and great joy.

  1. Beautifully written and a great story. I love how you pulled your own parenting experience and related it to how God sees us because it is so true. Even more with God. He loves us and wants to nurture us and help us grow. Thanks for sharing such a beautiful story and providing encouragement. :)

  2. Beautifully written! I love that analogy of the discovery of drinking from a water bottle and unlocking God's Truth in our lives. I pray this journey continues to bless and challenge you! I have realised in my life that it is the heart behind the question that determines how my God receives it. I may not get the answer I wanted to hear of course!

    1. Jo yes, I completely agree there was so much more I wanted to write within this post. I am learning to question because I really want to know his heart not question His heart towards me.

  3. What a beautiful post. I love the connection you are making to the bottle cap. Thanks so much for the encouragement. This post is a blessing.

    Also, just had to say that your little boy is adorable. He reminds me of my son when he was that age with the blond hair and big brown eyes.
