Voice: Medium of Expression

The voice of one crying in the wilderness…the cry of an infant…the cry of anguish…my God, my God, why have you forsaken me?

Prepare ye the way of the Lord! shouts the prophets over the pages…through the years…in the voice of a multitude preparing the way in song…sing…sing a song…make it simple…to last the whole year long

Hallelujah chorus…broken hallelujahs…voices raised in acclamation and praise…shouting, hooting, hollering…raising hands…joining in on the chorus…what does

my voice add in the strains of a million other voices…expressing words wrought from synapses and snapshots of memory and experiences and teachings and lives of living example

Creating together…voices of a thousand angels…cry Holy! Holy! Holy!
 
The heavens declare the glory of God,
and the sky displays what his hands have made.
 One day tells a story to the next.
Psalm 19:1-2 (GOD’S WORD Translation)

  1. "my voice add in the strains of a million other voices"

    It always amazes me to think how the Body extends over time and space all praising Him together. A beautiful entry. :)

  4. Holy, Holy, Holy indeed~! One of your most beautiful posts, Kel! I have a wet head and am heading out the door, so I will point you to what I said over at Ro's about voice, singing as I go (I am ALWAYS singing.......a source of embarrassment for my daughter. She says I "sing at her" in public)! =]

  12. Kelly........what an amazing stream of consciousness, as only you can share. And by the way THIRD person in less than 12 hours whose post for Friday or Saturday shared those same verses from Psalm 19. (My Still Saturday link up was one of them).
    God's voice is everywhere--Father, give us ears to hear.
