Rendered Speechless

Only a few times in my life, have I been rendered speechless. One occurred four summers ago as my daughter Catherine and I, after setting up our tents at the Grand Canyon campsite, walked to the rim and saw our first view of the Grand Canyon. It was late in the afternoon and I had the video camera rolling. We both said some one word exclamations of wow, OMG, mmmmm, amazing. We then just sat down, after looking at each other with this 'look' and just sat in stunned silence. There was a thunderstorm to the west of us, and the rain and lightning echoing through the canyon was a display of power I hope I never forget. We sat with others soon having lightning striking all around us, with the thunder rolls echoing up and down the canyon. We had a front row seat witnessing nature's power and it rendered us speechless except for short one word exclamations.

This morning as I read Revelation 7 I read of an entire group of people who were rendered speechless as they had a front row seat before the throne of God. This entire group was before the throne of God and all that came out of their mouth was their version of wow! amazing!, OMG. The actual words were "Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and might be to our God forever and ever! Amen." Rev. 7:12 ESV

Lord, render us speechless, so all that comes forth from our lips are one word exclamations!
