Andy’s only been talking for a year and a half, and there are alot of consonants he can’t enunciate. Additionally, his brain processes words faster than his mouth can say them, so Andy is often misunderstood.
Andy has wanted more of something yet we walked away as if he was done.
Andy has not felt well yet we made him finish his dinner anyway.
Andy has wanted to be picked up yet we walked away.
For Andy, there’s been tough moments where he’s wanted us to know so badly what he’s saying yet we didn’t.
Most of the time I’m there to “translate” for him but I feel bad for the times I haven’t been.
Sometimes, I’ve just had to confess, “Andy, I don’t understand what you are saying.”
And ‘though he keeps saying it over and over, we don’t get anywhere except frustrated.
I just want you to know that God has never misunderstood you.
When you’ve cried and had no words….He knew exactly what you were saying.
When you’ve only moaned, uttered, or winced, God knew.
He doesn’t misunderstand you. He doesn’t get confused by you.
And nobody will ever have to translate to God for you.
If He’s in your heart, He always knows what you’re saying from it.
