When Words Cannot Be Found~

There have been times

 when my heart, 

so overcome with grief or anxiety,

 has been speechless before God. 

Broken and shattered, 

words cannot begin to express "the whole"

of what is in my heart.

And yet, I know He knows.

It is then.

the Spirit,

 praying on my behalf,

 scoops up the moanings of my heart

 and carries them straight 

to the throne room of Heaven. 

 So too the [Holy] Spirit comes to our aid and bears us up in our weakness;
 for we do not know what prayer to offer
 nor how to offer it worthily as we ought, 
but the Spirit Himself goes to meet our supplication and pleads in our behalf
 with unspeakable yearnings and groanings too deep for utterance.
And He Who searches the hearts of men 
knows what is in the mind of the [Holy] Spirit [what His intent is],
 because the Spirit intercedes and pleads [before God
] in behalf of the saints 
according to and in harmony with God’s will. 
~ Romans 8:25-27. The Amplified Bible

 Today, my heart is overflowing with joy and thanksgiving -

so much so I cannot even begin to find words to express the gratitude billowing up inside me.

And, I wonder.

In times like this, 

does the Spirit once again

speak on my behalf?

Does it scoop up the 



and thanksgiving of my heart,

and carry expressions of inexpressible gratitude

 straight to the throne room of Heaven?

I pray it does.

  1. THis is beautiful. I've never thought of that scripture like that, but I think it must be true.


Thank you for leaving a "heartprint" of your own.
