the song lyric “whether or not your lips move/you speak to me” is taken from a song by over the rhine, drunkard’s prayer on the album by the same name. to me this song is about Jesus Christ being my source of nourishment, life, healing, enjoyment, and peace. this particular lyric is meaningful to me because sometimes it can feel like God is silent. however, i know that He is always communicating with me in some way or another. this is why i long to inscribe His Words on my heart– so that in those split seconds of decision, suffering, joy, or challenge, i am assured of His presence and love guiding me.
