I like how these thoughts are tied to Moses being unsure what to say, the Word being there in the beginning, and God speaking to us by His Son. It also makes me think of Ezekiel chapter 3 when he is told to eat the scroll.

To be in God's Word so that the things that come back out of us are shaped by it, or that in our hour of need we can say God's Word to Him or to a brother or sister, is incredible.

Concerning poetry and God being our Light, I often think of the Light breaking into and exposing our darkness. There was a poem on The Jagged Word that painted the picture so clearly that it comes up often in our morning devotions. Recalling that piece or reading another are opportunities to bring another of our senses into our study.
