May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing to you, O Lord , my rock and my redeemer.
(Psalms 19:14 NLT)

The words of my mouth are formed out of my heart.
Gotta sort through what’s pooling there…
A river gushing and flowing.
A current.
Strong and forceful.
Held for so long by the damn, fear.

Mediations can sometimes be shaky-
not be trusted but I am learning to unclench the grip a bit.
So tightly to the walls
that have held me back, happy to shed the skin of excess.

Knowing your hand guides me through these currents.
Water clear, fast and smooth. Running.
Ripened leaves bouncing in the breeze.
A perfect afternoon.
A deliciously lazy moment.
Sweet shining sun cooking my skin.
Aches in my belly from laughing
Smile on my face.
Feels good to be in a season of change.
My joy found in all you’ve given me.
May my life be pleasing,
an offering.

    Matthew 12:34… for out of the abundace of the heart the mouth speaks.

    What is in my heart? What am I putting there? Keeping there? It’s all a matter of the heart. Should I be speaking these words? Are they edifying? Intent? Purposeful? Fruitful?

    Thank you Lord for changing my heart. For Christ who became wisdom for us and that He shares that wisdom so freely for us when we seek Him.

    I like this poem Mandi. It has a peace and calming to it, hope.
