"If you write FOR a particular market or FOR a particular editor you will often miss the mark. But if you write because your fingers have danced across the keyboard, because a character has tapped you on the shoulder, because a story has settled in your heart, then even if you never sell it you have done the work you were meant to do. And sometime, dear readers, real magic happens." Jane Yolen


Open Mouths: Word-Filled Wednesday

Welcome to Word-Filled Wednesday, hosted at The Internet Cafe. Be sure to click above for more visual inspiration from scripture.

Our pastor preached on this verse from this psalm of Asaph this past Sunday. He reminded us that we must have great expectations for what the Lord will give us. We must be ready to be filled, with our mouths opened wide, as a newborn bird for its first meal. So how could I resist NOT making it a post for Word-Filled Wednesday?

I am the LORD your God, who brought you up out of Egypt. Open wide your mouth and I will fill it. Psalm 81:10

Paving Rough Roads With God's Presence


  1. Perfect timing... I just found out that I am leading worship tonight. And I needed to hear that if I open wide my mouth God will fill it.

    Happy Word-filled Wednesday!

    Joy & Blessings,

  2. This is one of my many favorite Scriptures, Jo. I pray it before every speaking engagement, but I need to pray it several times a day in my everyday. Thanks for sharing it!

  3. Joanne, the picture just complements this verse oh so well. Happy WFW!

  4. How COULD you NOT?? This is PERFECT girlfriend! I finally feel like I'm up for a bit of air, even though we started school and all that jazz! I've missed our daily chats! :) Praying blessings over your family Joanne...for a healthy, happy and grace filled year!

    Love you!!
