My heart is stirred by a noble theme as I recite my verses for the king; my tongue is the pen of a skillful writer. Psalm 45:1 NIV
From the first verse and chapter in the Bible you learn that I am a creative God. I put the world I made on full display with so many colors. Leaves on the trees stretch forth from their branches from gray to green. They open wide to receive the light and warmth of the sun. They burst forth in brilliant colors of orange, red and yellow during harvest time. I made you with the same creative abilities of expression encapsulated within the words that flow forth over your tongue. Choose wisely what you say, for your words have power.
The composing of love songs are more than a beautiful expression of devotion from one to another. The crafting of the song or poem is like using a net to capture some of the beauty of the waterfall cascading from the rushing river high above. There is so much more to capture in the early morning midst, the afternoon sunset or the dancing shadows in the moonlight. My Son anticipates the wedding day with His bride, the church. Even now, He is speaking to Me of the beauty of His bride and the love He has for her.
You are the only person who can express the thoughts that are within your heart. I enjoy listening to you express your love to your spouse. I listen intently as you look at your newborn and grasp for words to express the emotions that are bubbling inside. Your child grows up hanging on the branches of your encouragement (“You can do this, I believe in you.“) I spoke from heaven and told My Son that He is pleasing to Me. Victory has a joy of its own.
Please use your words for life and love. You may have to teach your tongue and your ears to grow accustomed to the new vocabulary and sound of words of life. Say them with a smile, they sound better that way. Speak the truth from your heart and the words can penetrate deep within another’s spirit.
Your tongue is the pen of a skillful writer. In the beginning was the Word and that creativity was placed inside of you at that same time. Words are powerful…I Love You!
