Today I remembered once again what it is like to just get lost in God’s Presence. I love it when you just get lost in worship. Time stops. It could be hours or minutes or days, and I wouldn’t know. In that moment God becomes so big and all of a sudden worries and insecurities and doubts become so small. When you lock eyes with your Maker you just cannot miss the truth. The Peace of his Presence is unlike anything else.
The incredible thing is that you really just could go on forever, because there are endless reasons to worship God. And the more you worship him, the more reasons you find. I could just worship him for giving me more reasons to worship him.
Today I am worshipping him because he really is enough. He is the great love of my life, and the great love of yours. He has recklessly and scandalously loved us. He has won me. He has never failed me. When I am weak, he is strong. When I have needed, he provided. I have been lonely, but I have never been alone. He held my hand while I walked through the darkness. He lit my path. Love has turned my darkness into light. He has removed my sackcloth and clothed me with garments of praise. The eternal Word of God became flesh and dwelt among us, died a shameful death, and defeated the grave to reconcile us to him. He is enough for me.
Thank you, Jesus, for becoming like me. I want to know you, and the power of your resurrection, the fellowship of sharing in your sufferings and I want to become like you in your death (Phillipians 3:10).
“One thing I have asked of the Lord, this alone do I seek; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to seek him in his temple.” Psalm 27:4
