I am sitting here. In awe. With my mouth hanging open. Ok, not really because I hate mouth breathing, it makes me thirsty. But spiritually, my mouth is hanging open and I am in awe. All because of this post that I just read. Twice. Once to myself, and once out loud to Vince. And I could hardly do it without bursting into tears because it is so, SO true for me right now.
This is a post from a blog written by Angie Smith, who is married to one of the members of the band Selah. I LOVE her blog...she writes with a raw honesty that I can relate to and she always makes me dig deeper in my relationship with the Lord. And makes me laugh too. Her scripture reference at the beginning of this post, Isaiah 6, caught my attention because this past Sunday I chose that very same scripture to be read during worship, right before we sang "I See The Lord". And it was powerful. Not just because it was my husband who read it, and he always reads scripture with passion...but because the Lord moved among us as he read it. He stirred things in our hearts, in mine I know it was only the beginning of something wonderfully amazing that He is doing in me and has been working on in my heart for the past few months.
He is revealing to me how very much He loves me. And how holy and majestic He is.
Simple truths, I know, but how often do I acknowledge that I believe that and yet I have only begun to grasp the depth of those truths? Do I really know how deep His love is? Do I really grasp His holiness? His majesty?
No, I don't. Not even close. But I am beginning to. My hand is on the door knob and I am opening the door...ever so slowly. Angie's post has helped me open it a bit more, and I am that much closer to taking a step inside.
I'm not sure I can handle the magnificence of the view.
