Wordless Sighs

I know. I know: a blog is not the place to become wordless!

Yet, here am with my fingers poised on the keys, less than 1 week before our Summer Bible Study: Dwelling, and I can’t squish all my feelings and thoughts neatly into vowels and consonants.

Turns out this has happened before, to me and countless others. Just when we think we need to explain ourselves … or promote ourselves … or defend ourselves. Nothing. Nada. Zilch.

Paul finally got a handle on it and left us with this encouragement:

Meanwhile, the moment we get tired in the waiting, God’s Spirit is right alongside helping us along. If we don’t know how or what to pray, it doesn’t matter. He does our praying in and for us, making prayer out of our wordless sighs, our aching groans. He knows us far better than we know ourselves, knows our pregnant condition, and keeps us present before God. That’s why we can be so sure that every detail in our lives of love for God is worked into something good. Romans 8:26-28, The Message

Wordless sighs … yes!

Aching groans … absolutely!

God’s Spirit right alongside us … I’m counting in it, aren’t you?!

Meanwhile … give a listen to this song on our Dwelling playlist:
