A silent smile

The heavens proclaim the glory of God. The skies display his craftsmanship. Day after day they continue to speak; night after night they make him known. They speak without a sound or word; their voice is never heard. Yet their message has gone throughout the earth, and their words to all the world (Psalm 19:1-4; NLT).

1. A silent smile,
A silent tear,

2. A silent hug,
A silent touch,

3. A silent prayer,
A silent sigh –

4. If full of love,
Can mean so much.

Don’t just pretend to love others. Really love them.
(Romans 12:9; NLT).


1. Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn (Romans 12:15; NRSV).

2. They sat on the ground with him for seven days and nights. No one said a word to Job, for they saw that his suffering was too great for words (Job 2:13; NLT). 

3. The Spirit [comes to us and] helps us in our weakness. We do not know what prayer to offer or how to offer it as we should, but the Spirit Himself [knows our need and at the right time] intercedes on our behalf with sighs and groanings too deep for words (Romans 8:26; AMPB).

Sigh in silence (Ezekiel 24:17; DRB). 

4. Do everything with love (1 Corinthians 16:14; NLT).

Three things will last forever – faith, hope, and love – and the greatest of these is love (1 Corinthians 13:13; NLT).
