Talking words is a writer's business. But God cornered the market on words long before we were ever a gleam in our mother's eye.
As I was praying and studying this morning I found myself going back to one of my favorite verses in all the Bible (okay, admittedly, I have a ton of favorite verses).
This one is Acts 3:8--"So he, leaping up, stood and walked and entered the temple with them--walking, leaping, and praising God." (emphasis added)
To me, this is one of the most exciting verses in the entire Bible. Every single time I read it, my heart leaps with joy. It makes me want to jump up and skip around the room. It's just 5 little words in the last part of that verse, but oh so powerful! It's banjo music to my soul!
What an awesome God we serve. I pray that each of us will take time to praise God today--and if we do some walking and leaping along with it, so much the better. Let our joy shine through!
