When words are not enough to tell you of our love
Listen to our hearts

I’ve realized lately that “I love you” often sounds insufficient to express how I feel about the people I love. How much harder is it to tell my Savior how much I love Him! I’m glad that the Spirit intercedes for us when we don’t have the words to say (Romans 8:26). One of my favorite things is to sit silently in God’s presence and listen to what He desires to speak to my heart. I expect that is also when He is hearing what I can’t put into words. This doesn’t stop me from trying to express my love, however. I do think that is important.

I am going through the Experiencing God Bible study, in which Henry Blackaby talks about having a love relationship with God. This should be the strongest relationship that we have, but you cannot have a relationship if you don’t take time to cultivate it. If you haven’t done so in a while, I encourage you to tell God as best you can how much you love Him. Thank Him for any blessings that you can think of that you see as from His hand (which should be all of them). Trust that He knows your heart and can interpret what you may not say well. If you don’t love Him, ask Him to change your heart and turn it toward Him. But, remember, love is not a feeling. You may need to start out obediently going through motions, but I expect the feelings will come as you break through the walls that want to hinder you.

So if you listen to my heart Every beat will say
Thank you for the life; Thank you for the truth; Thank you for the way

Amen.

(Lyrics from Listen to Our Hearts by Geoff Moore and Steven Curtis Chapman)
