I’ve never had too much of a problem writing down my thoughts. I guess this is the way I can express myself without actually speaking the words. As I grow older, the words I speak get garbled or I use the wrong ones. There are times when I can’t find the words – when my mind just won’t wrap around the thoughts intelligently or in a logical way. The same is true in my prayer life. There are times when the words pour out of me and other times when I just don’t know what to pray for anymore.

At those times I feel like I need someone to help me find the right words. God’s Word tells us, that even on those occasions He provides an intercessor for us. My words have meaning through the Holy Spirit because He knows my thoughts and my heart. God knows me inside and out. He certainly doesn’t need my prayers, but by praying, we have a way to communicate with Him. He loves it when we do that, because He is always willing to listen. He is our greatest friend in so many respects, but prayer allows us to praise and honor Him along with asking Him for help when we need it. Even when we can’t come up with the right words, He knows our hearts and minds better than we do.

Isn’t it great how God provides for every aspect of our lives – even the words we send to Him? Our God is an awesome God!


About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

    Amen Kathy, sometimes I find my words are stagnated as well, that’s when I know that my intercessor (The Holy Spirit) has set me on pause. Most times I find He wants me to delve deeper into the word. Other times, He wants me to feel His Word through worship…and then he fills me with the words I need to communicate His message- and not my own. Thanks for sharing this💕

    Old age is not for the faint of heart. May He overshadow our limitations to reveal His beauty.
