LET MY WORDS BE FEW


Right now, one of my favorite CD's is by a Christian group called Phillips, Craig, and Dean. My most favorite song from one of their CDs is called "Let My Words Be Few." The lyrics to the song say:

You are God in heaven
And here am I on earth
So I'll let my words be few
Jesus, I am so in love with You

And I'll stand in awe of You, Jesus
Yes, I'll stand in awe of You
And I'll let my words be few
Jesus, I am so in love with You

The simplest of all love songs
I want to bring to You
So I'll let my words be few
Jesus, I am so in love with You

And I'll stand in awe of You, Jesus
Yes, I'll stand in awe of You
And I'll let my words be few
Jesus, I am so in love with You

Every time I hear that song, something deep within me stirs. And yet, every time I hear the lines "I'll stand in awe of You, Jesus, Yes I'll stand in awe of You," I know that I probably don't stand in nearly enough awe of this great and mighty Lord who loved me enough to die so that I might live.

As I was driving down the road this morning, I spent some time praying about exactly that. I asked the Lord to show me exactly how awesome He is. Within hours, He began to show me.

I had asked for prayer about finding a new job, and one dear woman (Hi Jan!) whom I had never met before responded to my request with encouragement and scripture. The most amazing thing was that one of the verses she shared with me was Luke 1:45. "Blessed is she who has believed that what the Lord said to her will be accomplished." That verse was one my Lord spoke to me months ago about another area of my life where I have struggled to keep my faith strong, and to have her speak that as encouragement in my job-seeking was absolute confirmation to me that God is at work in the situation of my work. All I must do is to hang on and remain faithful to trust Him to bring it about. It is precisely what the Lord had quietly been speaking into my heart, so it was a really special confirmation!

When I responded to Jan, I related to her the story of the other area for which God had given me Luke 1:45 as a promise, and she again contacted me with yet another scripture which was spot-on, another confirmation from the Lord.

Now I ask you -- how could a woman whom I had never before met, either in person or online, possibly know to speak to me two scriptures so absolutely perfect, and which boosted my faith a million times over what it had been moments before if God were not an awesome, mighty, powerful and WONDERFUL Lord?! He used Jan as His channel to pour His love through to me -- she was the funnel, I was the empty vessel, and He was the One who filled me to overflowing with a few simple words.

Jesus, I am so IN LOVE with You, and I WILL stand in AWE of you, Lord! Let my words be few!
