“My deep need calls out
to the deep kindness of your love…”
Psalm 42:7, Passion Translation
There are days, moments, when a spiritual breeze blows through and awakens a deep, hidden place in our souls. It comes, often, in silence, but can be as a raging storm.
It leaves you speechless. In awe. Overwhelmed. But hungry for more.
This morning I saw You in a newly painted living room, mostly put back together, the sun peaking around clouds outside and wind chimes singing sweet songs of spring around the corner. It was just a moment in a busy week. A moment when my body was a bit tired and fighting off a headache. But there You were. Pushing into my moment in all of Your beauty and majesty. Reminding me of how far You have brought me. Reminding me of steps along the way since building this home 16 years ago.
You are magnificent.
But more: You are near. Current. Real. Personal. Perfect in grace and truth.
Your goodness overflows. Your Life pushes back darkness and death. You have shown Your love and faithfulness towards me in discipline and in comfort.
You sought me out when I was so lost, I was scared to be found.
In all things You gently, yet firmly, took my hand and led me to this moment of awe. How, how can I ever take it all in?
It was just a moment of remembering. A moment of silence in the midst of a day. But now I am undone and everything else pales. All those many tasks and mountains I thought I had to climb today, this weekend, are now but simple steps in the light of You.
You leave me speechless.
