February 20 & 21, 2010, "Vast Realm of Awe"

Triumphant Victorious Reminders
Inspired by the Holy Spirit
Written By: Teresa Criswell

"The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in Him, and I am helped; therefore my heart greatly rejoices, and with my song I will praise Him."
~ Psalm 28:7 ~

Lord, to be amazed by You for only a moment causes my mind to enter an unknown, vast realm of awe.
My soul and mind plead with me to come back to this mundane realm of reality.
My spirit longs to stand, sit and lie down amazed at Your awesome wonder and majesty.

The things that I am finding out are beyond comprehension.
Yet doctrines and cliches of man has numbed me down to not believe that a great evil could exist; nor believe that Your great Power can overcome that which we don't dare look at or believe.

There is a great evil that no horror movie could articulate on a movie screen that is going on around us; but this does not take away from my true Focus. My focus is on You, The Great God of The Beginning and The End. You God The Creator, The Molder, The Fire of Passion that leads to You no matter the chaos, destruction and devastation that would try to rise up against us.
You God are Victory!

There is so much more than prosperity and poverty.
There is so much more than health and disease.
There is so much more than faith and fear.
It is all there, yet, it is You I desire to long for.
You are The Source of prosperity;
but I don't want to only seek after You for the prosperity to replace poverty.
You are The Source of Health;
but I don't want to only seek after You for the health to replace disease.
You are Faith and The Source of Faith. It is impossible to please You without it.
But I don't want to only seek after You for only the results of what faith brings.

Being that You are and were and will be; these attributes and more should not be my focus, nor where I find my source of encouragement.
You are my Source of Encouragement!
You are God.
If all is lost and forsaken,
You will not be lost, nor shall You ever forsake, leave behind or abandon;
not for one moment.
Never, never, never!

I love You Lord with Your Love! Thank You For Your Changing, Transforming Love!

Love Your Daughter,
Teresa

  1. Wow, what an amazing prayer of love. I read it over and over. I don't want to seek God for what he can do fro me, but rather for who He is.

  3. Good morning Teresa,

    I'm visiting my followers today. As I finished your post I must admit that I wonder where many Christians get such a positive overcoming attitude every day. I've been a Christian for a very long time and I can remember feeling this level of enthusiasm for God. I don't speak to the lord with such eloquence. I rant and scream and press against the goads.

    My current post is about gratitude and I am pressing to be more 'sweet' and less cynical about life. So if I can impose another point of gratitude it would be for your post. I am grateful that there are others who know the love of God and can write about it so beautifully.

    Thank you!
