Your life has meaning …

Talking My Language …

In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express. (Romans 8:26 NIV)

I planned to travel on vacation to a place where English wasn’t the main language. For months I practiced words and phrases that would get me by while I was visiting. I used multiple learning styles so I’d remember what I studied. I read the words and phrases. I wrote the words and phrases and I listened and repeated the words and phrases.

Finally, rehearsals over, I made the trip. The first time I used my new language I felt stiff, embarrassed, and uncomfortable. But the person I spoke with patiently paid attention and actually understood what I said. “Wow!” I thought, “This is fun.” And, of course, I wanted to learn more words and phrases. I was like a kid who just learned to ride a bicycle. The kid rides the bike everywhere and I wanted to keep talking my new language everywhere. My words and phrases stretched out to many more words and phrases and my confidence increased.

Spiritually speaking God isn’t struggling to learn our language; God speaks it perfectly.
