Behold Our God.
To be honest, we sang this song this morning.
I was undone.
I pictured God-the Creator of the Universe-seated on His throne in all its grandeur, but still caring about my small, minuscule dream to return to hospital nursing.
I pictured how blown away and astonished the disciples were to see Jesus standing in front of them after 3 days before they had seen him broken and beaten, hanging on the cross.
Overwhelmed, I sang “You will reign forever (Let Your glory fill the earth)”
I was overwhelmed by God in that oftentimes, I show up to the throne room with a list of requests and petitions.
“God, can you……”
“If you love me, you’ll….”
I forget to simply just let Him be God. I was overwhelmed this morning-to the point of tears-realizing that even though the past couple weeks were hard, God had in grand ways answered all the prayers of my soul-even the ones I dared not utter out loud.
He opened (and continues to open) doors for me to go back to hospital nursing.
He brought someone into my life to calm my anxious soul and who pursues me with such grace and patience. This special person encourages my seemingly crazy thoughts and pursuits as I strive to figure out this new Sara that he loves.
He showed me my corner of the world and made me realize that Mansfield needs Him just as much as the places I’d dreamed of. He didn’t take them off the table, but rather He changed my heart and eyes to see Him in the seemingly mundane.
This is the God that I worship.
This God who is seated grandly on His throne in heaven, but still cares about the seemingly minuscule desires of my heart.
This God-who is Creator of the Universe-deserves to simply be beheld in all His glory.
“Behold our God seated on His throne
Come, let us adore Him
Behold our King! Nothing can compare
Come, let us adore Him!”
This is something I was reminded to make time for. Time to just bask in the awesomeness of God. Time to sit at His feet and worship Him for all the things He has done and will do.
If you need me, I’ll be over here overwhelmed by the goodness of God. I’ll be over here beholding my God who as done over and beyond what I prayed and wished for.
