Without A Word


There are those rare occasions when I've found myself speechless. My mind searched for just the right words, uncertain of what to say, I said nothing. You have probably experienced the same. Yet it's not always a bad thing to say nothing.

God has given us many ways to communicate with others... touch, smiles, a nod of the head, a hug. Expressive faces often give away our thoughts and feelings. Then, there are times when words just don't quite seem to be enough.

When my heart feels as if it is breaking, and a flurry of thoughts fill my mind, I have learned to slip away to the secret place. I don't have to audibly talk to my Heavenly Father. There are times when I  just worship. I do this by sitting in his presence, and allow him to speak to my heart. I find that I must be still and wait on the Lord. Psalm 46:10 Our stillness not only allows us to hear God, but allows God to be exalted.

When I have moments of uncertainty, (how or what should I pray?), I am assured that provision has been made for me.
Romans 8:26-27 encourages me with this promise "Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities for we know not what we should pray for as we ought; but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God." KJV

When the right words seem to evade you, remember God knows your heart. We can pray in the Spirit and we can pray the word, but when words don't quite seem to come, just bask in his glorious presence, and worship.
