I have walked with my Savior for the last 37 years of my life. In the process, I have discovered much about His likes and dislikes, His personality and His ways. But today, as I am overtaken with the holiness of His presence, I feel like I haven’t even begun to know Him.
I have seen Him displayed in the beauty of magnificent trees, the power of the ocean, the kindness of my friends, the giggles of my children.
I have known His touch upon my heart, His joy deep in my gut, His comfort when everything fell apart, and His tangible grace blanketing my very life. Yet the more I walk with Him, the less I seem to comprehend the majesty of who He is.
He surprises me over and over. He loves me to overwhelming.
I never felt so small than when I caught a glimpse of Him today. In the swiftness of the blink of an eye, I sensed Him in the midst, and I buckled under the weight of His love.
I fall to my knees, and I can hardly breathe. He loves me to overwhelming.
And right there in this moment, I want nothing more than embracing eternity and forever be with Him.
