Get the picture?!
I'm a little addicted to them!
It's just that I love words...They're like building blocks. With them you can paint pictures, create characters, evoke feelings, convey thoughts - they can be shaped and kneaded and cajoled into all sorts of communication! You can do so many things with them!
There's only one drawback to doing crosswords...
When you do one out of the newspaper, you have to be careful what you use to write on! Otherwise, you end up with all sorts of little newsprint letters all over...(it's even worse when I do Word Search puzzles - can you say, little circles everywhere?!)
I did something similar the other day - had a quick thought I just had to jot down or it would be a "goner." (I really miss my brain...) Anyway, rather than get up and get a tablet, I just grabbed a scrap of paper, and wrote out my thought on the top of my laptop.
This morning, when I got my coffee and sat down, I glanced at the laptop before opening it. And there, barely visible, were some letters.
I realized that I had inadvertently "scratched" a word into my laptop...GRRRR!
All right, it's hardly noticeable. The light had to be shining JUST RIGHT for me to see it, otherwise it's basically invisible. Even so, I tried rubbing it off -
But, it's OK...
You know WHY?
Because the little word scratched into the top of my laptop was...PRAYER!
Isn't that just too precious?!
It was like a message had come to me directly from God.
"Sharon, it's the same way the Holy Spirit works in your life. I have Him write My words in your heart - and then, when the timing is JUST RIGHT, I shine My light on them and the words become visible."
Have you ever felt that way?
Like you were doing the typing, but Someone else was doing the talking?!
THAT'S "HOLY GHOST" WRITING!!
"When we tell you these things, we do not use words that come from human wisdom. Instead, we speak words given to us by the Spirit, using the Spirit's words to explain spiritual truths." (1 Corinthians 2:13)
"...don't worry about...what to say. God will give you the right words at the right time. For it is not you who will be speaking - it will be the Spirit of your Father speaking through you." (Matthew 10:20)
Oh Lord, what an honor and privilege to speak for You. May the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart be pleasing to You, my rock and my redeemer...
