When I was pregnant with our first child, I read an article explaining that after babies were born they would recognize voices they’d heard while in the womb. So for the next nine months my
husband, Bob, and I would talk to him, pray for him, and sing to him.
Then came the big day,
several hours after he was born—I’ll never forget this moment—we decided to try out this theory of voice recognition. I swaddled our precious son close to me,
and as Bob stood across the room, he gently called out, “Jared, Jared.” All of a sudden,
Jared's little head began to jiggle and turn, until his head was completely turned
sideways looking at his daddy! It was an amazing moment!
He recognized his father’s voice and turned towards him!
I treasure this beautiful memory. It reminds me of how God loves us by offering us new birth; how he speaks to us through his Word,
how the Holy Spirit prays for us, and that God sings over
May we too have ears to hear our loving Heavenly Father’s
voice, then turn towards him and follow him!
