Mouth and Heart...

"Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in thy sight,"
Psalm 19:14

Reading
Psalm 19

The nature declares the Glory of God without any voice or words, yet, their voice can be heard throughout all the world. Paul Tillich writes " These voices of the universe are not heard by human ears; they do not speak in human language. But they exist, and we can perceive them through the organs of our spirit... The psalmist has heard it; he knows what the stars are sounding: the glory of creation and its Divine Ground."

The question is what fills our heart and mouth? our meditation and our words, does it declare the glory of God? Are we learning from God's creation? The immense glory of God that fills all around us.
