quotes from God

these words we breath out are His 
these moments we think are special are 
because we breath through Him
and He breaths through us
that's when its special
that's what we will remember, and others will remember
God breathed out these words, scripture
and we tote them around and decorate our tables and walls with them
and then ask God for a sign
He shakes His head
i spoke words to you that you do not listen
that you do not read
that you do not know
find me there
feel me breath

i used to keep a notebook of quotes when i was young
oh how i loved quotes and i still do
the awesome power of words
and how pieced together and written
can you make you breath easier

but to think we have an entire collection
of quotes from God himself
penned down
for us
so that we
can breath easier
He knew we'd be afraid
so he said "do not fear"
He knew we wouldn't understand faith
so he gave us definitions 
He knew we'd want answers and examples
so he gave us page after page, word after word, story after story
not to decorate our coffee tables and walls
but to fill our heart and soul


My son, if you accept my words and store up my commands within you, 
turning your ear to wisdom
    and applying your heart to understanding
indeed, if you call out for insight
    and cry aloud for understanding,
and if you look for it as for silver
    and search for it as for hidden treasure,
then you will understand the fear of the Lord
    and find the knowledge of God.  
(Proverbs 2:1-5)

because 

All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness,  so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)

store up in your heart, mind, and soul.

Pleasant words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones. Proverbs 16:24 Leave me some honey.
