The Perfect Words


Psalm 45:1 My heart is inditing a good matter: I speak of the things which I have made touching the king: my tongue is the pen of a ready writer.
~~~~~~~~
An unassuming journal.
A pen with flowing ink.
A writer wildly passionate,
Finding a space to think. 
She puts the pen to paper,
And words begin to flow.
They tremble in her fingers
And they set her face aglow.
They tumble quickly from her mind
In waterfalls of grace.
They line the path she's treading
As she seeks her Saviour's face.
In words she finds expression
Of the galaxies inside.
In words she calls to question
The fears she cannot hide.
Her words are raw and richly full
Of love for Lord and life.
She finds in words a quiet lull
From the world's thunderous strife.
But human words cannot describe
The greatest Love of all.
The Love that chose to sacrifice
For men bruised by the fall.
The words for that can only be spoken
By the tongue of a Holy God.
And though she write with ink like an ocean,
Her words will ever be flawed.
In this she turns to the Holy Writ,
The only perfect Word.
So pure and undefiled is it,
Through countless years preserved.
In this great Word she finds at last
Fulfillment all complete.
Her future, present, and her past,
With perfect love replete.
So she writes with sweet abandon,
In the light from worlds above.
She pours her soul out on the page
As she shows a cruel world her love.
She uses her words, small though they be,
As a candle in the blackness.
The broken hearts of others see,
Her light of peace and gladness.
And though her words will never be
As perfect as she longs for,
She knows they will be when she sees
The King of Heaven her heart adores.
When her storm tossed ship comes to rest
On the shores of eternal glory,
She will finally have the words to express
Her soul's redemption story.

  3. Sometimes my grasp of the English language fails me completely.. usually it happens when I'm stressed, angry, or after I've seen something that's touched me deeply. The latter is the case this time. As with your last post, this is too beautiful for me to express my reaction too. :)
