Inadequate Praise

I have this big lump in my throat because I am all choked up thinking about how awesome God is. Words can’t describe Him and words can’t describe His wondrous ways. He has blessed me in so many ways that I have to keep telling Him, thank You, thank You, Lord! Today this river of praise is overflowing from the deep places of my heart.

But “thank you” doesn’t express deep or wide enough what I have to say to God for all He’s done for me. I just hope that since my heart is wide open to Him – He knows. Some things are said in unsaid words if you know what I mean. That’s how it is with God.

I know my words are inadequate as they so often are. I am glad God knows me and knows what I am going to say before I say it or the words that are written on my heart that are still left unspoken. He hears them. He hears the silent wordless prayers that breathe their way to Him. Because He knows the heart and breath of who I am.

I would be nothing without Him but with Him I am all He made me to be. And I want to fully live this life He has ordained for me. If today that is awkwardly attempting to express my awe for Him then that is what I will do in this moment with fingers flying across a keyboard and a heart full of worship.

I come before Him today with inadequate words and an offering of thanksgiving and praise.

Psalm 100:4-5 
Enter into His gates with thanksgiving,
And into His courts with praise.
Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.

For the Lord is good;
His mercy is everlasting,
And His truth endures to all generations.
