What if…

Dear Lord,

What if I did not have the ability to speak?

I imagine I would dream of all the sweet and wonderful things I would say!

I would long to tell my husband, my children, and everyone You put in my path

good things, encouraging things, important, meaningful things.

I would not think of wasting my words on lesser things.

Or what if I were only given a maximum number of words per day?!

I wouldn’t dare waste them away…the way I now so foolishly do

Since I never think of not having this liberty…

The liberty to speak whatever, whenever, however, and as much as I please.

O, Lord, may I be wise,

May I only use words to minister grace, bless, edify, encourage,

and admonish with great care and love.

Purify my heart to spill over with gratitude in everything,

So love and joy ~ You will supernaturally overflow from all of me.
