Radiance & Undeniable Beauty 

He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. After making purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high..

You, Lord, laid the foundation of the earth in the beginning, and the heavens are the work of your hands; they will perish, but you remain; they will all wear out like a garment, like a robe you will roll them up, like a garment they will be changed. But you are the same, and your years will have no end.

‭‭- Hebrews‬ ‭1:3, 10-12‬ ‭

But despite everything, the beauty of who You are still moves me. Beyond anything else, it still moves me.

You still have my awe.

With all my heart. 

I’ve always loved the story of Mary and her alabaster jar. Withholding nothing she broke her most precious treasure and poured it all out upon the feet of the One she loved. 

Do you know how you have come face to face with the presence of God? It is when the only response that remains is the burning desire to pour all of yourself out before Him. To give and give and give of every last drop of your soul until there is absolutely nothing left. 

More than just emotion, more than just fleeting feelings, the Holy Spirit quickens us out of our natural apathy and selfishness as we behold the face of One so worthy that we cannot help but to desperately fall at His feet and freely give our all. 

“I want to be Yours. Please, only let me be Yours.” This is the heart wrenching cry that rings through the chambers of my dry and dusty soul when His presence sweeps over my heart like a fiery wind. 

To be fully given to the One who has given it all to be near to us. To yield and surrender into perfect oneness. To love, not just in parts but in complete and utter entirety. This – this is the sweetest fragrance of worship. 

“… And you shall love the Lord Jehovah your God with your whole heart and with your entire soul and with your entire mind and with all your power.” Mark 12:30

Take me back to the beginning

How do I praise You in my brokenness? How do I give You what You are worthy of when I am only half full? How do I sing, even in my pain, fear and mistrust? 

Bring me back to that place where I could come to You in abandonment. Take me back to when love was simple. Take me back to when trust did not have to make sense. 

I want to sing again. I want to love well again.

Eternity, Fear of God

Humility // He is God, I am not. 

Who are we, as mere man, to determine right from wrong? Our standards and our self perception are foolishness in the sight of God. And it is when we think we know better and elevate ourselves above the wisdom of God that pride has entered into our hearts. The foolishness of God is wiser than man’s wisdom. His ways are higher than what we can fathom. It is utter ignorance and foolishness to declare that we know a better way than what God has provided for us through Christ Jesus. His word is final & all will be brought before His burning eyes one day. Far be it from me to scorn His ways and follow my own waywardness – only to regret it on that day when I stand before His throne.

At the end of the day, He is God and I am not. He is Creator and I am the dust formed by His hands. And it all boils down to whether we understand this one simple thing or, in pride, choose to rebel against it. 

As for me I will yield to my God in humility & worship Him in the reverence He is due.

Little scribblings of hope // joy flowers inside my heart 

7.19 am. I stir awake to sheer joy and a song of praise within my heart. I am so thankful to be called Yours! I am so excited about who You are, and my heart is bursting with anticipation for all that You will do. After all this time, You still reign. After all this time, You’re still true. 

Sing praise my soul

Find strength in joy 

Let His words lead you on

Do not forget His great faithfulness 

He’ll finish all He’s begun.  

(back to bed with the silliest grin on my face.)
