No Words Today…

02 Mar

This Gift Box, Ribbon on Top, is accompanied by the Following Note…

This is an unusual day, Gentle Reader.

My town’s churches, CLOSED because of weather and driving danger.

THEREFORE:

  • I got to listen to one of my ministry young people (college seminarian) preach his first sermon on the radio this morning… which was wonderful… THEN…
  • I got to “attend church” with a pastor many hundreds of miles away, listening to this young  (to me) man preach, who I have prayed for all his career, having first heard him give a sermon when he was (I think) 19 years old, or so (more than 20 years ago, now)… as he was giving his life to the Gospel Ministry… and that was wonderful… THEN
  • I got to hear God “put me on notice” that this was Palm Sunday, and that He again (as often in my life) was going to bring about something wonderful in/for me… come Easter Sunday… and that was wonderful.

But somewhere in the course of all that, perhaps in the internet radio portion early on… this song, that I’ve posted here… played. And it absolutely captured me. Moved me to tears, took my heart to the Throne, and took all breath and sensation away.

I have no words to wrap around this moment, this song, these words, this experience for you. All I can say is they rang deeper in me than anything I’ve ever known, and the words “Holy”… and “Glory”… have somehow transformed in me from “words” to “being”. They feel, and felt, like the very blood coursing through my veins, or the air filling my lungs. They were not “Thoughts”… they were “Dimensions in Themselves”.

They were, and are, Beauty Itself! Beyond Beautiful… so far beyond beautiful that there are no words I know to express what they ARE!

This was Gift, Gentle Reader. Jesus, this morning, handed me a wrapped Present, and Inside it, I found this song… these words.

And now, I hand them on to you… wrapped in all my love and care… filled with His Grace… to Gift you for your sacredness. These go to you with all my blessings this day!

Yours, in Him — The Little Monk

    The tears fell as I, too, unwrapped this precious gift. Thank you for sharing. Oh to sit at the table with Mark and Timothy and then to bow before The One Who died for me. Thank you for sharing this today. I needed it.

      Isn’t music amazing? Sometimes…. not always, but sometimes… it seems like a frequency or a harmonic just “shatters” the human part of our hearts, and the richness and Alive-ness just pour straight into the soul. And there’s no predicting it, or engineering it. It just happens, sometimes.

      Glad this fed you, too. It is good, to worship together. Especially when He Alone arranges it!

    This says so much about me. The “wrapping” on the outside caused a bristle. So many “worship songs” with just the right amount of earnest expression. Then as the pressie came out, and the genuine love a fellowship poured forth … Just a great big smile at being enfolded in so much love. Genuine “friends together doing what we love doing” kind of real. Must stop bristling quite so quick.

    Thank you. This was gorgeous.

      Note to Self: “Get different wrapping paper, and NO Big Bow on Top, for Paul” Got it.

      But glad when you got to the creamy center, the grace was there for you!

      Cheers — LM

    When there is no other way, all we need to do is bow our knees. Agreed, little words needed. W
