Have you ever felt Word Weary (WW) in your prayers? I have! And, right at the height of one of my prayer seasons of WW, a friend shared a magazine with me.; “Scientific American Oct. 2012 issue.” The front cover featured article was entitled; “The Language of the Brain, how the world’s most complicated machine processes and communicates information.”
I thought, OK, WW, it’s my brain. I quickly read the article and realized, no, not my brain. Well, maybe I had some locked cells. Let me test and see, I put on a new outfit for color to see if my eyes might just unlock the brain cells. NO, I’m still Word Weary!
Let me try a craft with my hands. O, gee, one more useless item to display so I can remind myself to pay off the credit card for the glue and sparkles each time I see it. I’m still WW.
Jump, dart and run because I had ignored my ears. Why of course I got it, Music, order a new CD, play and catapult my emotions right into an ‘orbit frenzy’. This just had to unlock those locked brain cells. This exercise reminded me I had spent more money and had more clutter to face up to. I’m still Word Weary.
Feet, I have found my answer. Buy a new pair of flip-flops, get them all dirty in one day. What a flop, I am WW in all my prayers.
Then, I received a letter from a very special lady outlining what is to be her last few months (unless God intervenes) on earth and sharing how thankful and grateful she is for all God’s goodness to her by working thru His earth angels. The eyes make a river, the heart expands, the hands go up, the feet go into help action and the prayers are no longer Word Weary.
My words are now birthed from the Spirit within. Salvation is God’s Gift to the World. It does not come from us earthlings but from Jesus, the Lord who saves. Immanuel, the Lord with us makes me realize I am not salvation to the world. He is!
