words we use in our prayers, words we use in our praise. words we sing in the church every week, every day. words we say one moment and forget the next, words whose meanings need no sentence or even context. words we think we know and comprehend, words we say with abandon and don’t understand. words carefully chosen to convey His love, words arranged in a way that can only come from above.

words i thought i knew and lived out each day, words i’ve sung in worship and spoken in praise. words with definitions that i have forgot, words that mean much more than what i have sought.

repentance is difficult, surrender even more so. He’s my Lord and Saviour whose name is hallowed. He’s forgiven my sin and called me His friend. to the sanctification of my heart, there is no end.

walking with Him is both joy and pain, but if you ask me i would choose it again and again. i would keep those words close to my heart, near to his love, never apart. grace, truth and mercy – those words convey, which is more than what any other words can say.
