The Language of the Heart

God, do you hear the language of my heart?

Beating away
rhythm to an intelligent pulse
sometimes fast, sometimes slow
sometimes loud, sometimes soft,
Whispering “I love you, I love you.”
“I live for you, I live for you.”

Words cannot express what it is saying,
it beats to a rhythm, to a purpose higher than its own.
It sings the songs of angels,
it tells of great wonders.

With every moment in time,
it weaves a tapestry of voices, of emotions
From deep within my soul and spirit,
reaching up and touching God’s heart.

It speaks of a language far away
a country often spoken of
a wondrous people,
a kingdom,
heaven.

The language of my heart…

Love the Lord your God with all your Heart and with all your Soul and with all your Mind and with all your Strength

Recently I felt challenged to love the Lord my God with all my heart, soul, MIND and strength. In particular, I felt challenged to love the Lord with my MIND. what does it mean to love the Lord with my MIND?

 I think it means not conforming to the pattern of this world, but renewing my mind according to the word of God.

Choosing to let God’s word be the authority over what I study, my career. Letting God mould my beliefs, shape my thoughts.

I think this is also closely tied in to the idea of Creation. As His creation, knowing that everything is Created by Him and for Him, I know that

“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom,

And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.” Prov : 9 – 10

 

“The heavens declare the glory of God;

The skies proclaim the work of his hands.

Day after day they pour forth speech,

Night after night they display knowledge.

There is no speech or language

Where their voice is not heard.” Ps 19 : 1 – 3

 

Some food for thought! Some keywords on loving God with our minds are : wisdom,  understanding, speech, knowledge, language
