"Draw near to God and He will draw near to you."
~ James 4:8 ~

I sit and pause to find the word...ok two words...utterly amazed.

I am truly and utterly amazed by the King. His gracious mercy and love that He pours over me is indescribably amazing. As I sit here in the library, hearing the 'clicks' of the 'mice', the modems hum, the fingers click upon the keyboards, I would love to shock 'em all...haahaa! I would love to hilariously stand up on the desk, dramatically raise up my arms to the ceiling and yell, "Wow! God is good! Look at each of you so intricately made with the ability to ponder, wonder, and knowing that at this moment we are given permission to be ALIVE! Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!" I sound crazy, yes I know...but I admit...I am! Haahaa!

All I can say is thank You Lord for another day you have made. May my life just exemplify Your freedom as though I were to hilariously stand up on my desk of life, dramatically raise my arms to the ceiling and yell with great joy about Your glorious greatness! Thank You for Your Love and Who You are to overflow when my love is empty.

As I draw close to You I am finding that Your promise to draw near to me is beyond what I could ever hope, imagine, dream or witness! I am totally enamored by how You draw near to me when I decide to draw near to You! I am blown away by your matchless powerful love! What do I do with myself? I just want to laugh so hard as Your overwhelming nearness annihilates me...how can I not share it with others? How? How can I keep this to myself? Ahhhhhhhhhhh!!!! You are beyond amazing...indescribable for any word to boast a definition! You are 'indefinitionable'!!! I love You Lord! I pray that when I say, "I love you" that I love You with Your love, not my own.

  1. Oh Teresa, your enthusiastic love for the Lord is so contageous... I LOVE IT!!! ;)

    Indeed, "this is the day that the Lord has made...let us rejoice and be glad in it!!"

    Each day truly is a gift. A fresh new start. Another chance to draw near to the One who loves us the most, and Who cares about our EVERY need and heart's desire.

    Another great post, dear friend!

    love you,
