Talking about the Lord

Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart. Be acceptable and pleasing in Your sight, O Lord, my [firm, immovable] rock and my Redeemer. (Psalm 19:14, AMP)

I want to say a personal thank you to all of you for your support, prayers, and encouragement through the trauma that I faced in May.  Many of you offered to be a listening ear and I want you to know that I’m grateful.  Honestly, the best way for me to get through anything difficult is to spend time with the Lord.  I find myself on my knees before God Almighty and humbling myself in His presence.  I still don’t completely understand the events of my labor and delivery.  But this I do understand, God is faithful!  He knows what’s He’s doing.  He never left me and He never will.  I know that the Lord is good even when life throws me a curve ball.  I trust that God’s purpose will prevail and I pray that I can glorify my Father through every event of life that I face.

So thank you for your prayers and offers to listen.  But I have found comfort in my Father’s arms.  I have found joy in the One who is faithful.  I have found peace in God’s Word.  I have found hope in the presence of my Savior.  I have been restored.  Daily, I find God renewing me and giving me the strength for each new step.  No one listens like the Lord listens.  No one quite hears me like God hears me.  And no one can come through the way God can come through.

My Father has been so good to me.  I never want to underestimate the power of His hands in my life.  I want to trust Him with my whole being.  I want to cling to the promise that He will bring good through everything that I face.

“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” (Romans 8:28)

So here I am…  Ready to get back into my writing.  This last week, I realized the reason I enjoy writing is because it gives me an opportunity to talk about the goodness of God, to talk about my Savior, to express the truths that God is revealing to me, and to embrace the moments of God’s faithfulness in my life.  You see I find myself being disappointed with people on almost a daily basis.  I want to talk about the Lord in every conversation.  I could talk about God from the moment I get out of bed to the moment I fall asleep at night.  You see God is everything to me!  I know that even my next breath is His.  He gives it to me!  I want to praise Him with my time on this earth.  I want to glorify my King.  I want the words of my mouth to be pleasing in God’s sight.  I want the things I meditate on to honor God.

I see over and over again that we all talk about what we are passionate about.  We talk about the things we are learning.  If we are into sports, we talk about sports.  If we watch the news a lot, we talk about the news.  If we are into our jobs, we talk about our jobs.  So on and so forth.  We talk about the things we spend our time in.  I want to spend my time with the Lord.  I want to grow in the likeness of Christ.  I want to have a mind that glorifies the Father.  I want to be pleasing in God’s sight.  I want my conversation to be filled with God’s grace.  I want people to experience the love of my Father in every conversation I partake in.  I want to talk about the Lord!  Are you with me?  Do you want to talk about God?  If so, stay tuned…  I plan on using this week to talk about God.  I’ll shout from the rooftops the praises of my King.  Your welcome to come with me!  I pray that together our conversations will look a little different this week, as they center them around Christ alone.

“Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.” (Ephesians 4:29)

Dear Father God, I pray that my writing will glorify You.  I pray that my conversational moments will be centered around Christ.  I pray that my mouth will only speak what edifies others.  May we as Your people find ourselves talking more about You and less about ourselves.  God may we find ourselves more involved in the Kingdom aspects of life and less concerned about the temporal things of this earth.  Lord, may our conversation honor You! 

Talking about the Lord!
