“May my spoken words and unspoken thoughts be pleasing even to you, O Lord my Rock and my Redeemer.” (Psalms 19: 14, the Living Bible)
This is an inspired aspiration and one we can take to heart. The psalmist sought to speak and think in a way that would honor God, good. This prayer and recognition of God’s presence and power is a guiding light for us as we go about our lives.
Let’s pause and reflect before we speak. We may at first want to respond to someone in a way that boosts ourselves up or puts someone else down. We may speak to be heard and looked at, or in a way that is overly defensive or perhaps self-deprecating.
Do those words please God? Do our unspoken thoughts and motives feel worthy of our Rock and Redeemer, the Creator of all, the divine Life that is Love? We can surely speak freely, genuinely, but this authentic voice is the one that comes from our soul. It is full of goodness, kindness, understanding, and intelligence.
Our consciousness, when devoted to a higher purpose and ideal, is aligned with God Himself, and so we can express naturally what is right and constructive. And our silence, as well, can radiate a humility that allows God’s own certainty, serenity, and saving grace to powerfully shine through.
