My default view of God is much smaller than I cognitively know Him to be.
I want to be caught up in the wonder of who He is. The wonder of His creation. The wonder of his power.
I want to expect the unexpected. To pray for the unexpected.
I want to delight in the simple. To see the beauty in things I overlook.
I want to see God's face in every person I encounter. Because each one is created in His image.
I want to always know that He loves me. That His plans for me are excellent. Even when they are hard.
He loves me. He knows me. He desires a relationship with me.
And He loves the people around me. He knows them. He desires a relationship with each of them.
He loves the people I have never met. He knows them by name. He knows them inside out. He desires a relationship with each of them.
How can that be?
And yet it is.
It's mind boggling.
How can I not be in awe?
How can I not fall on my knees and surrender every aspect of my life?
Not just in my mind but in the way I live my life, in the way I respond to stress and work and friends and family?
How can I not serve Him in every aspect of my life?
If only I could grasp the greatness of God.
