Tongues

         They began to speak in other languages,
         as the Spirit gave them ability.

               —Acts 2.4

I send these posts out daily through an email server.
Turns out it has a monthly message maximum.
Once I hit it, I try saying something, but the words don't get out.
I hit “send,” but it doesn't go.
So nothing went out for a week.

I wonder if God ever feels like I did?
What if God wants to express love but we're not transmitting it?
What if God is still doing Pentecost?
What if God wants to say something through you?
Is it getting spoken? Is it getting sent?
What if you are the Word God is trying to get out?
What if you are the language in which God expresses love?
What if there are ways, even beyond your own knowing,
that others hear God's good news through your life?

Listen deeply.
Speak boldly.
You are the blank page of the letter,
and God is the writer.

         You are a letter of Christ...
         written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God,
         not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts.
