So why would I name my blog “No Words”? Why would anyone name a blog that? After all, a blog is filled with words, right? Well, here’s the backstory. Lately, I’ve been thinking about how much I love to write. I’m not the best writer in the world, but I do believe I’m gifted and God put a love for it in my heart. He also uses it…. He and I bond as I write. Not only because I pray for the Holy Spirit to guide me, but because many times I also research and reflect upon scripture as I write as well. It’s one of the ways I feel closer to Him. Perhaps that’s because it’s part of His plans for me. There’s something powerful and special about walking in your calling. I know I am pleasing Him through this and that fills my heart up.
Anyhow, as a writer, it’s rather frustrating when you feel like you can’t put things into words. Recently, God has my husband and I in a season where He is doing insane and wonderful things. It leaves me standing in awe of Him. I’m in awe of His majesty. I’m in awe of His sovereignty. I’m in awe of His love. I’m in awe of His grace. I’m in awe of His mercy. I’m in awe of His faithfulness.
I began praying about a blog name. Several days later, I went into the bathroom and prepared to brush my teeth. As I looked in the mirror, He spoke to my heart. He reminded me of how often I’ve been telling Him lately “Lord, there are just no words.” No words…No words…
As He’s doing all these new things in our lives, it’s been bringing me to a place of just wanting to kneel on my knees and cry in thankfulness for who He is and what He does. We can still do our best as humans to try and explain His character with our words (fun fact, by the way. The King James Bible has roughly 783,137 words). Words are powerful, folks. The bible has a plethora of scripture about words, speech and the power of the tongue. Anyhow, there have been so many times recently when I’ve just been so grateful my heart could explode and I just couldn’t get that doggone no words…out of my spirit. So here we are. 🙂
