The Best Words

I want to write.
I want to write words that speak loudly and whisper in your ear.
I want to write words that make you think
long after your eyes have left the pages.
But your mind is still there, lingering, wondering.
I want to write so your heart aches or
brings a smile to your face.
I want to write to encourage you if you’re holding on by a
thread.
Or if you only need a gentle nudge.
I want to write so a tear glides down your flushed cheek.
I want to write to make you laugh aloud
and
you
don’t
care
who hears you.
I want to write words that make you scream
at a character or makes you whisper in your
heart,
“I’m rooting for you.”
I want to write words that you fall in love with at
every page.
I want to write.
But
my
words
aren’t  the best.
Another has words better than mine.
I borrow His words but He doesn’t borrow mine.
His words are
the way
the truth
and the life.
His sheep hear His words.
His words restore the soul and are sharper
than
any two-edged sword.
His words comfort. His words will never leave you.
Nor forsake you.
His words disciple you.
His words conform you into
His
image.
His words are beautiful.
His words endure forever. They are
timeless.
His words should be your first thought when you wake
and your last when you sleep.
His words are calling you.
His word is unchanging.
But His word will
change
you.
I want His words to consume me like a blanket.
I want His words to pin me down like a dagger.
His words are the best.
I want His words to penetrate the depths of my heart.
I want His word to change, convict, and comfort me.
I want His words to search me
and root out the
sin.
I can’t live without His words.
I need His words.
I adore His words.
Because they bring me joy.
I want to protect His words from thieves.
His words strengthen our faith in Him.
His words should make us long for heaven.
His words will bring you to your knees in repentance.
His words will harden a heart.
His words will take a heart of stone and turn it into a heart of
flesh.
His words expose the soul of sinful man.
You can’t hide from His words.
You can’t run from His words
His words will wipe your tears.
His words will make you worry less
pray more
worship more
 and repent quickly.
His words are faithful
His words cannot lie.
You can trust His words.
Because He is the
Word.
You need His words.
His words make you submit,
trust,
and obey.
His words bring life to those who believe.
His words bring death to those who don’t.
Don’t reject His words.
His words will make you less fearful.
His words are better than anything
this
life
has
to
offer.
His words will not bow to an
anyone or anything.
But every knee will bow down
to Him.
And His words bring you to the foot of the
cross.
Because
His words are the best.
