VIA| Comedian Michael Jr. is used to having his voice heard when he’s performing in front of an audience. What he never expected was how his newborn baby responded to his voice.
Michael recently dug up video footage he recorded of his youngest daughter being born. In it, she is being cleaned up by the nurses in the delivery room and she’s crying. That’s when Michael starts talking to her to calm her down and something amazing happens. She stops crying.
When she starts crying again, this time he comforts her with an “I love you” and she goes quiet, but this time she opens her eyes to look at him, as if she knows what he’s telling her!
Michael says he hadn’t realized it at the time, but watching the footage made him understand something about fatherhood and faith.
“We’ll always have times when we’re not as comfortable…where life is just heavy,” he says. “The key thing to do in those moments is to be still and listen for the Father’s voice. Because he is trying to talk to you. And I can tell you what he wants you to know is that he loves you. All you got to do is open your eyes.”
Michael’s message is a good reminder to listen to the voices who are important to us in our lives.
