The Wordless Words of My Heart

I sit here with tears streaming down my face and heart bursting with joy. I soak in God’s presence, unable to think the words that fill my heart and I think of Romans 8:26:

“Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words.”

The Spirit is very much-needed tonight because I simply cannot conjure the words. But God knows.

It’s so beautiful to my heart; whether you are overcome with joy or sorrow, when the words don’t come, there is a God in heaven who knows! Sometimes, praying is not necessary, nor is it needed – sometime what is needed is to just bask in the presence of the Lord, your God, and let the Spirit translate your heart into the language of your Creator. Give Him your heart today, with whatever it may be filled, and let the Spirit speak your need, your love, your desire, to your Father in heaven. Empty yourself before Him and let Him fill you back up with His incredible love and joy and peace. You are His beloved one; bask in Him today. ❤

my lament

i sit here as the darkness that fills the world blots out my vision of the light.

woe to this world who teaches us that there is no consequences

woe to this world who encourages us to live only for ourselves

woe to this world who lies and twists the truth

woe to this world who seeks only to kill and destroy


i fear for the future of this generation.

i fear for my children and those being born into the ugliness of this world

i cannot see a future with goodness, only that filled with excuses

i hear the choices being made by the next generation, and i feel like Ezra, that i should tear my clothes, pull out my hair, and wail in the street.

what will it take to wake up this broken world?! THESE CHOICES YOU ARE MAKING HAVE LIFELONG CONSEQUENCES. each bad choice leads to another in avoidance of the consequences. this is not life worth living, it is a shovel that digs further with each choice, just waiting until you fall into the pit you have dug, leaving you trapped in the dark.

Selah


Today I pray the words of Habakkuk 3:2: O LORD, I have heard the report of you, and your work, O LORD, do I fear. In the midst of the years revive it; in the midst of the years make it known; in wrath remember mercy.

In your wrath, please, O LORD, remember mercy.

And he is a merciful God. Though the consequences be real, he is waiting with open arms for all who seek him. He sees each choice and, with tears pouring down his face, whispers, “And still I love you. You are worth so much more than this.”

Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need. Hebrews 4:16

in your wrath, O LORD, remember mercy….

Please join with me in praying for this broken generation that continues to buy into the lies of the world; there is nothing more important than this, that we continually pray.
