inadequate

so often my words are inadequate. days like today, i begin to write, but what is on my heart comes out in verses that have already been written. and i, in awestruck wonder, can only read along - in humble adoration - remembering my past; remembering those days, months, years of my life when these verses were merely words written on a page in a book. by His grace, he transformed them into truths that are now written on my heart. my heart is burdened for those who only read these words with their eyes, understand them with their minds, but have yet to experience them through His love:

"I love you, Lord;
you are my strength.
The Lord is my rock,
my fortress,
and my savior;
My God is my rock,
in whom I find protection.
He is my shield,
the power that saves me,
and my place of safety.
The Lord lives!
Praise to my Rock!
May the God of my salvation be exalted!"
psalm 18

"Whom have I in heaven but you?
And earth has nothing I desire besides you.
My flesh and my heart may fail,
but God is the strength of my heart
and my portion forever."
psalm 73
