Last week I posted God's Valentine to us.
Today I'm posting my Valentine to God...
THERE ARE NO WORDS
My Valentine to Jesus
I come before You, Lord, with adoration
filled with a strong desire to express my love
but all the words that come to mind
seem over-used and feeble
and cannot convey what I long to say
I’m a poet, a wordsmith
with adjectives a-plenty, and
close at hand, but
today I yearn to bless You afresh
with eloquence, depth and originality
I want it to be profound
something You’ve never heard before
however, I find there are no words
none to express the inexpressible
so I empty myself of words
and call upon Your Spirit
Sounds begin to tumble off my tongue
and through my lips
I trust a perfect utterance
rises like incense to Your throne
that is pleasing to Your ears
then I simply sit awhile
awestruck in silence
arms lifted heavenward
and let my beating heart speak
content that You know
how much I love You, Lord
