Good God.
Sweet Jesus.


Such truth. They praise the Lord without meaning to. They speak these words with no understanding of the weight those professions of truth carry. But we know.

Good God.
Sweet Jesus.


Such truth. Do they know that angels wait for declarations of faith, of goodness? Do they know that their words could be caught in angelsí hands and carried to their intended destinations? We know.

Good God.
Sweet Jesus.


Such truth. Do they know that no word of God is ever exhausted? Do they know praise never returns to him wasted? We know.

Good God.
Sweet Jesus.


Such truth. Do they know they could go out in joy and be led forth in peace? Do they know those words of sweet trust? We know.

Good God.
Sweet Jesus.


Such truth. You are a good God. You are a sweet loving embrace. We know your truth. May they know this inexplicable joy, too.

We will still praise you. We will always praise you. We will forever take joy in the incredible gift of living in the God of our salvation.

Such truth, indeed. "Do they know..." very thought-provoking!

Super! Whenever I hear an exclamation of this type, I pray that the speaker will hear his own words and realize Whose name he just called on. A beautifully written heart-plea to God.

Oh, I like this.... The "Good God, Sweet Jesus" lines work on multiple levels and give the whole entry a lot of depth.

I especially like how each paragraph concludes with "We know!" And this sentence, "Do they know praise never returns to him wasted?" left me with a lot to think about. Thanks for expressing this!

I've always thought that people who use these phrases ARE really recognizing the hand of the Almighty in their lives, even though they don't know that's what they are doing! I enjoyed this very much.

How often have I thought these very same thoughts. People saying things out of rote - stringing words together, because they seem to fit, yet are clueless to the meaning behind them. Words have power; and although it might be debated if they are lessened by rhetoric, to those who sincerely listen that power is not diminished - it only reveals the speaker for who they truly are.

It truly makes one think. Good job.
