Silence is praise to you, Zion-dwelling God, And also obedience. You hear the prayer in it all. Psalm 65:1-2 (The Message)
Sometimes I am quiet. Nothing wrong, yet I am struck dumb, wordless, mute but not without racing thoughts and juggling considerations. There are just some days when I must seal my lips and give offerings of silent praise. Many times I am silent because I am overwhelmed! When I think about how incredibly awesome God has been to me, my loved ones and those I call friends, the paths He has led me down, the blessings sent my way and let me not forget the answered prayers… tears of gratitude, trickle then flow, unchecked. This praise offering must be silent because I have no adequate of words. At those times, I know nothing my simple mind could string together could convey all the feelings that I have for all that God has done, my gratitude and love. This is one of those days and on this day it is with that spirit that I know God hears and accepts the silent praise offered!!!
Make His praise glorious!
