What Do I Know of Holy

This week has had me looking and seeing things in a new way. I guess you could say that my eyes have been opened to a small glimpse of how horribly self-important we can be.

All I can think to say is, God, I am so sorry for thinking I had you figured out, that I could fore-tell what you would do, what your plans are, or even how powerful you are.

We have seen nothing of God's power and plan. No matter how much we pursue him, we will never understand how vast and powerful and mighty and holy he is. I am so glad that this week I was reminded that it is ALL about the relationship with Christ, the worship of him with our WHOLE lives, the passionate pursuit of him in EVERY way.

God loves us in a way that is so big, we can only comprehend a small, small part. How comforting that is. No person on this tiny little world will ever compare or come close to God. No matter what happens, when we press into God, trust him and depend on Him, even though people fail us, God never will. And he will prove it, again and again.

For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom his whole family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. ~ Ephesians 3:14-19

The song you chose this week was beautiful and said so much about what you went through this week. We only know in part; but one day we will know fully. And I for one look forward to that day. In the meantime, we walk by faith one day at a time. Thanks for sharing from your heart.

Never heard this one...what true words..yours and in the song..it is so easy for us to put God in our 'box' of limited understanding...our lives are a continuing journey in discovering a God Who defies human boundaries...
blessings to you,

I love this song! I also enjoy Hope Now by Addison Road, but I don't think I'd ever heard any more of their songs until today.

This song goes so well with the study I've been doing this week. What a great way to end a week on learning and growing in awareness of the holiness of God.

Thank you so much for your transparency and your willingness to seek Him. Praying for you sister!
