When words are not enough
Sometimes words are not enough to express just how we feel and what we want to convey.
Isn’t it true that there are times when spoken and written words are not enough to express how we feel? So what do you do in that case? How do you express yourself? What happens when words are just not enough?
The thing is — I would like to say thank you, but find that thank you is not enough to show my appreciation for the many good memories, lived experiences, sincerity, pastoral, moral and spiritual support that I experienced in my ministry in SPACE. I find that written and spoken words don’t always express the whole meaning of the message. And sometimes they can be easily misunderstood and convey a completely unrelated message.
So what do I do in that case? How do I express myself?
I pondered that question for quite awhile and realised that when God wanted more than the written and spoken word, when God wanted the message to have a bit more substance, the Word became flesh and lived among us.
And the Word became flesh and lived among us, full of grace and truth. God gave the Law through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. John 1:14, 17 & 18
And so I want to say, may the truth of my heartfelt thanks, which comes from a place a grace be alive with you. But most of all, may God’s Word live within you.
