Content with my Creator and that's still an understatement....

Without Words

It was just last night when I was trying to play the guitar and soak in His love for me, winding down after a long day's work. The downside? I wasn't spending the night in my own room and the guitar was a classical. Trying to press the "wide-spread" strings with my comparatively tiny fingers was a struggle. Not too sure whether it was lethargy or frustration, but no words were sung. As I flowed into a simple tune, plucking the strings and gently catching the rhythm, fading into a melody of four simple chords, I realize that no words need to be sung.

Giving up out of frustration, I just let the sound of the strings sing. That moment, like a subtle jolt, I realized that the strings can sing for itself and so can my heart without words. Too many revelations flood my mind this very second. Psalms 66:4 says that "All the earth shall worship you.." and I doubt a guitar would be excluded. (lol, just thinking out loud.)

And so as I begin to fully grasp what worship from the heart is all about, I realize that words may be the last thing on my mind sometimes, maybe even on His. Why? Cos words can't really fully describe the greatness and wonders of this Awesome God we serve! He's so far-fetched that the word "far-fetched" to describe Him would be undermining His glorious ways!

If God could read our hearts, I believe it would be a far cry from what we are actually expressing. Words and actions can only limit ourselves from fully and truly letting out on how we feel! And so as I was browsing through Bethel's Facebook site, the two words "WITHOUT WORDS" jumped out at me, and I was there and then introduced to a whole new world of songs without words, the power it brings in an 'unscripted' manner and the answer to my subconscious question I had in my quiet time last night when I just had no words. 

This is "Without Words"...  

Where even a typewriter becomes an instrument of worship....

Working here has been more than a roller coaster ride
That would be an understatement.

Never knew that one month of internship
Can throw all that I've known in my sheltered life out the window
And open my eyes to a door just half opened
Mercifully giving me time to digest whatever lies behind

Can't fathom the amount of joy and gratification I'm feeling from my job
It's crazy and I don't wanna turn a 'workaholic'
But this is not something that I have always dreamed of as a young girl
No, it's something I reached through a series of 'pleasant' accidents
And many 'I-don't-know-what-to-do's"
Through very unassuming ways

Thanks to this blog of mine
I got exposed to the world of writing and beyond
With great encouragement coming from overseas
And nothing else to study
I stand amazed at where I stand.

With God before me
And Britt Nicole playing through my headphones
It's like I can take on whatever the world brings

Loved, blessed and favored, I feel.......content.
