I experience some of the greatest relief when I just blurt out without thought of preparation my feelings to God. They do not always sound especially holy or eloquent; for at times I am confused, sick, or frustrated. Then there are the other heart-talks that are almost like a song too beautiful for words. God is pleased at sound of our voice, but He loves the sounds of our hearts.
Expressions of deep that overflows;
Precious nuggets revealed of the soul.
Sweet sounds of yearning, burning desire,
Brought to and from God’s loving fires.
Digging deep into hidden places to find,
The selected sacrifice at appointed times.
Heart talk speaks in different dialects,
To the intended listener selected as best.
Love is the language that all understands;
It is felt more than heard in all the lands.
Expressions, impressions, and confessions all the same;
Preciously conveyed messages the heart proclaims.
Come rest at the feet of the One you adore;
Heart-to-heart, in touch with the living, loving, Lord.
At worship in work, in play, and at rest;
Whole, happy and free; as His you are truly blessed.
In trouble, in trial, in sickness, and in pain,
Heart talks with the Master breaks the chains.
Jesus is the Word of God and He speaks clear.
Come closer with hearts in tune the world can love’s language hear.
God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.”
I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship.
I do not cease to give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers, 17 that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him, 18 having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints,
