Opening up the view

WHY do we ever get over being amazed at God's love for us, at what Jesus has done for us?? Sometimes I think we purposely obstruct our view of the glory of these truths simply because our hearts might burst if we tried to take it all in at once -- it's just too much, just too wonderful, too amazing, so that we have to find a way to contain it so that we can move on with the daily mundane-ness. But if we step over the fences and move out into the bigness of God that surrounds us, we just might be able to do things we had not ever imagined that we could, we might be able to love each other better, we might just be able to fly.....

Sensory overload: the face of God

On days like today when the world has come alive in the warmth of spring and every one of my senses is flooded with the beauty of creation, and there are not enough words to express it. . . .
I think about how it is God who made it all and how utterly amazing and sensory-overloading it will be to look on His face.

I long for that day.

"For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known."
~ I Corinthians 13:12
