04 May The Words of My Keyboard
I am sitting here staring at my keyboard. (Not music – I don’t know what to do with one of those. This one has letters not black and white keys.) It is a marvelous thing. It talks. It says anything I want it to say. With it I can spread hope or despair. With it I can build good or with it I can destroy. It is an outlet for my mind. It is amazing. When we think about it we can transfer thoughts from one mind to another and if we print what we key in, those thoughts can be transferred to other minds years and decades after our minds are thoughtlessly dead.
Thousands of years before my keyboard was the Psalmist wrote, “May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer.” Psalm 19:14. How did he write that? Did he have a stenographer?
The 21st century equivalent of that verse would be, “Let the words of my keyboard and these thoughts of my heart be pleasing in your sight, Lord, and may they spread the good news of Jesus love to all the world via the wonder of the Internet.”
I realize that rendition isn’t nearly as poetic and beautiful but it certainly is my prayer as I assure you that Jesus loves you, forgives you from ALL your transgressions and has reserved a place just for you. Your name is already engraved on the door of your heavenly home. I also pray that the words of your keyboard posted on Facebook or wherever will always be positive and filled with the joy of salvation.
