This morning, I prayed with my feet as I left my *official* prayer and Bible reading time to go comfort my child.
I prayed with my hands as I hugged and consoled him.
I prayed with my voice as I stayed calm and empathetic.
And I prayed with my mind as I sought wisdom to help him deal with his big feelings.
I read last night that because we are made in the image of God, we are reflections of Him. We are not mere mortals. Our children are not mere mortals.
I have a hard time pushing a child away and saying, “Leave me alone. I’m spending time with God.” I don’t think it would please or honor God to treat the child made in His image that way—especially at His expense.
So today, I prayed with my feet and my hands and my actions. I’ll try to carve out some time tonight after the kids are asleep to read my Bible.
