I Stand in Awe

I am continuing my reading in #Unglued.  I have had such an eye-opening experience with this book and it seems as though Lysa Terkeurst is either looking in my window or listening in on my conversations.  It’s a lot to digest so I wouldn’t suggest reading it all in one sitting.  You have to read, take notes, put it down, ponder and pick it back up again.    

More on #Unglued in a minute, but I have to go in another direction for just a little while.  One song that I have been tuned it to lately is Let My Words Be Few by Phillips, Craig and Dean.  I so enjoy praise and worship and this song has truly spoken to my spirit.  I stand in awe of you, Jesus.  I listen to it every day and evening and throughout the day.  I stand in awe of you, Jesus.  When I break it down and dissect the word awe, I discover that it means an emotion of wonder, it means reverence and respect.  I enjoy the words, so simple, yet so powerful…just a few words.  

I sat in a group of encouragers one evening and we started talking about life's challenges.  We talked about what keeps us uplifted and I mentioned worship songs, they would come over my thoughts.  So one of them offered this verse, Zephaniah 3:17.  I know that in His word there is an answer to every question and every situation.  I wrote those very words in my book God Provides a Way of Escape and God continues to show himself even now.  Ok, so what does the verse say? 

The Lord your God in your midst,
The Mighty One, will save;
He will rejoice over you with gladness,
He will quiet you with His love,
He will rejoice over you with singing.”

My dear friend said to me…”He sings over you”.  All I can say is thank you dear friend for sharing that bit of wisdom and knowledge with me at just the right moment.  It has now occurred to me that God composes a song with us in mind.  He sings words of comfort.  Like a lullaby in the midst of chaotic thoughts and actions.  You can put your weight on it. 

You can start facing challenges that are out of your control and not act out of control.  So here I am in the midst of #Unglued, letting my words be few, and allowing God to sing over me.  What a journey.
