Un…Im… June 3, 2008

In my devotions this morning, in my journaling/prayer I was writing the words “cover us all in Your unending, unfathomable love”. And I thought, “How many times does our mind take us to the negative side of those words beginning with “un” and “im”?” Uninspired, unfathomable, immovable, unbelief, impossible.

With Christ we should be looking at the positive. Looking for Christ in every situation.

Uninspired – Colossians 3:16 (NIV) Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God.

Unfathomable – Who does great things, unfathomable, and wondrous works without number.

Immovable – 1 Corinthians 15:58 (NLT) So, my dear brothers and sisters, be strong and immovable. Always work enthusiastically for the Lord, for you know that nothing you do for the Lord is ever useless.

Unbelief – Mark 9:23-24 (NLT) “What do you mean if I can?”Jesus asked. “Anything is possible if a person believes.” The father instantly cried out, “I do believe, but help me overcome my unbelief!”

Impossible – Genesis 11:6 (NLT) “Look!” he said. “The people are united, and they all speak the same language. After this, nothing they set out to do will be impossible for them!” Luke 1:37 (NLT) For nothing is impossible with God. ”

Do you have any words that trigger you? Words that you associate with the splendor of the Lord?

What a beautiful post! You probably know better than I do, what words trigger me. 🙂

Thank you. I don’t know about that, I’ll be thinkin’ now.

Let me know if you think of anything. I think actions trigger me more than words, if that makes any sense. You love words though, don’t you? They frustrate me, because I feel like my words hinder communication. I wish I could just transfer thoughts back and forth. That would be much simpler. Maybe way scary, though? 🙂
