Multitude of Words
When you want to say so much but you can’t!
“In the multitude of words sin is not lacking,
But he who restrains his lips is wise.”
“A fool vents all his feelings,
But a wise man holds them back.”
So many times where I think I could have said this, I should have said this. Maybe I shouldn’t of said this or too much of that. Then my mind just never really knows much but the anguish it is causing to itself.
The only words I could find that would help me through the soulish realm in the nights and days of turmoil thought processing is this—WORSHIP!
Thank you Jesus.
Love you Jesus.
You are here with me now Jesus.
You never leave me nor forsake me Jesus.
Words of wisdom. Sometimes we just got to stay quiet inside and out. It’s so hard to hold back the thoughts, to sit on them or swallow them. Who can I think of that probably thought too much but the psalmist David.
My soul also is greatly troubled; But You, O Lord—how long?
In the Lord I put my trust; How can you say to my soul, “Flee as a bird to your mountain”?
How long shall I take counsel in my soul, Having sorrow in my heart daily? How long will my enemy be exalted over me?
O my soul, you have said to the Lord, “You are my Lord, My goodness is nothing apart from You.”
For You will not leave my soul in Sheol, Nor will You allow Your Holy One to see corruption.
He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake.
[ A Plea for Deliverance and Forgiveness ] [ A Psalm of David. ]
To You, O Lord, I lift up my soul.
Keep my soul, and deliver me; Let me not be ashamed, for I put my trust in You.
O Lord, You brought my soul up from the grave; You have kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit.
I think he knew about that soulish realm that we should not allow to reign or have dominion. This is the part that wants to govern our every move but it cannot. We must be led by the spirit! That is why he kept praying on it. He prayed every time he reached that point. And those were just a few–for in the search for the soul in the content, the Psalms had many others.
Relatable truth! For there is nothing that could bring us the quick deliverance like the multitude of words that are available through the scriptures.
They are life.
Much more than we could ever say.
