“A – Z” — Happy Humpday

(This meditation is an excerpt from my new book, “Humble Beginnings — Daily Meditation Moments” to be released September 1.)

“The Master declares, ‘I’m A to Z. I’m the God who is, the God who was, and the God about to arrive.’ “Revelation 1:8

 A writer is often referred to as a wordsmith—one who works with words. Because I lack an extensive vocabulary, I tend to play with words in order to make my writing more interesting.

For a conference I’m presenting for church support staff next April, I’m working with the theme “Exploring the Servant Heart.” During my daily meditations, when a word lingers in my mind or touches my soul, I add it to an A-Z chart in my journal, hoping to come up with wise ways to use them in my talk.

So far, I have the following words: ambition, balance, control, development, expectations, feelings, gifts, honesty, integrity, joy. But no “k”! Moving on: love, merriment, nurture, obedience, peace, quiet, rest, serene, trust, uniqueness, vision, wisdom, x-ray vision, yearning, and zeal.

So, what about “K”? Perhaps the key to naming the kingdom-serving heart of the church office worker is to ask advice of the knowledgeable King of Wordsmithing, who has nothing but kudos for all who have a heart for service—in or out of the church.

Dear Lord, give us the love for your words found in scripture. Amen.

prayer for you
