THE RIGHT WORDS



We sometimes struggle to find the right words for people. I think it makes sense that we can get caught up in wanting to find the right words for God.

The beauty is, He knows our hearts already.


There's nothing we can say that is more eloquent than what our heart is already producing when we surrender to Him in all ways.


He is looking for purity over perfection,

confession over confidence,

and for faithfulness over flawlessness.



Luke 18, 9-14

"To some who were confident of their own righteousness and looked down on everyone else, Jesus told this parable: 'Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. The Pharisee stood by himself and prayed: 'God, I thank you that I am not like other people—robbers, evildoers, adulterers—or even like this tax collector. I fast twice a week and give a tenth of all I get.'

But the tax collector stood at a distance. He would not even look up to heaven, but beat his breast and said, 'God, have mercy on me, a sinner.'

I tell you that this man, rather than the other, went home justified before God. For all those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted."



What a beautiful thing it is, when the heart is so full of gratitude, that tears that first began from sorrow become tears of joy during the duration of a simple prayer.


Use the Word as your guide when you don't know what to pray. Let the Holy Spirit translate for you when you find yourself unable to speak beyond tears or groans.


Praise Him with your time, strength and life because those are gifts worthy of offering Him.


Romans 8:26-27

"The Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. And He Who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God."



To come to God openly is a beautiful thing. We don't have to speak eloquently. He isn't looking for that.

Speak to Him while you're driving alone, or softly as you're waiting in line, or as you pause for a coffee break, as you drift off, before you turn on your favorite show...

We are blessed with 100% of our day.

How much will you give to God?



Lord, allow me to always be open and willing to learn.

I want to give You more of myself every day.

In Jesus' Name.



With love,

Sarah Jane
