10.28.2021 – Getting to the “heart of the matter”…

The Lord has been speaking to me about “words” this morning…

“Words” and “Wisdom” and “Understanding”

Sometimes it seems to take me a “long trail” of words…

to “illustrate the path” to where I’m trying to get to…

…to get to the point,

the main purpose,

the moral of the story

the heart of the matter…

(See what I mean? 😆)

It’s kind of like I’m attempting to paint a picture…

and I’ve got ALL of these different colors that I want to use…

…that the different “colors” of words might help to illustrate

this “picture”

that I’m attempting to paint.

…but… I’m learning,

that sometimes,

when it comes to “color”

“less can be more”…

Yes, “less can be more” when the all details begin to clutter, and distract

and take away...

from the heart of the matter,

from the main purpose,

from the pure

and simple

moral of the story.

I’m learning…

that sometimes it’s best

to keep my words

to only a chosen few. 💝

Lord God, help me to use my words wisely…

These words that I use…

…truly, I need only

a chosen few.

May the words that I choose

be used to speak life,

and to glorify You,

in all that I say

and all that I do.

Help me to keep the words of my mouth,

the writings of my pen…

“pure and simple,

short and sweet.”

For truly, “my less”

is far MORE with You.

You know how to get to the point, God. 💘

Help me to align the words that I use with Your aimYour heart’s intent— in mind…Your target—for You desire to get to the “heart of the matter.”

My part is really so small and precise… for You do the miraculous work of the heart. 💖

“He has made My mouth like a sharp sword,
In the shadow of His hand He has concealed Me;
And He has also made Me a select arrow,
He has hidden Me in His quiver.”—Isaiah 49:2

Thank You, Father. 💝
