{Psalm 19}

I came across this video today. At this time I am unable to upload but I leave you the link from YouTube below. I hope that you will spend a few moments sometime this week to watch it. You will not regret it.

For those of you following us on Facebook – this video will be uploaded @In Christ I am SHE and you can see it there.

Psalm 19:1 says, “The heavens declare the glory of God;

and the firmament sheweth his handywork.”

“Men are never duly touched and impressed with a conviction of their insignificance, until they have contrasted themselves with the majesty of God.”

R.C. Sproul

I sit here in AWE over ONE – a pit stirs within my stomach. It has made my mind spin this afternoon fast then I can think. I find myself pondering over how much I consider my life to be “my world.”

Looking out my kitchen window my thoughts race with question to myself on how much of life do I live that is about me or not about me (two loaded questions and yes, I did answer). Taking stock in where my heart and treasures are is an awesome and scary thing all at once.

When confronted with GOD – it changes a person. I am a believer and have been since March 9, 1982. I know where I will spend eternity. I love the Lord. But I must say that I have been shaken today in how much I underestimate how great God is. I limit Him. I underestimate His vastness, greatness, ability, character, umm…Himself – He is GOD!

Does the very name ‘GOD’ shake me to my core to reverence {to fall on my knees before HIM} or is it just another word with just an ordinary response like if I said the word potato?

I am not in ANY way trying to be unreverent here, but think about how we daily use words like God, Lord, Jesus, Christ, Almighty, and Father in our conversations or writings – and just move on. I just don’t want to ‘move on’ with God as though He is just another word or thing. I want to STOP. Pause. Cease. Ponder. Mediate. To consider what, how and why the way I speak His name or even write it from now on is to display the glory and honor due to GOD every single time!

I will tell you right now – I know I am not perfect. My family can prove it! I will never be and I can guarantee you that I WILL fail, but with the Lord’s help I will strive from this point on!

It leaves you humbled for I am smaller than the smallest grain of sand on a beach compared to this vast universe – yet still He loves me (and you)! Yet still He died for me (and you)! Yet still He longs to have an intimate, personal, precious, deep relationship with ME (and you) and I choose “what” over HIM? Shame on me! Who am I?  I am so convicted. Lord, please forgive me. Thank you for your grace and love.

Truly, IN CHRIST I AM SHE {Saved. Hopeful. Empowered.} AMEN
