You know how we sometimes wonder, what makes so-and-so tick? The heck with that, I want to know what makes ME tick! Sometimes, just the simple act of getting my thoughts down in writing brings massive revelation about my deepest self. Sometimes, I feel like I am wandering in a fog, but always, there is a release that comes, just from letting the words flow.
I love people. People are the most beautiful expression of God. While I can sit for hours in the outdoors, lost in rapture, gazing at a glorious vista or entranced by the beauty of a flower, there is nothing that compares to the mystery that is humanity.
Last weekend, Jack and I were so privileged to lead a worship event in Houston, TX at a church that had a profound impact in our lives in the early years of our life together, the Church of the Redeemer. The place is a portal to heaven. I cannot find words to describe the feelings that were evoked as we all came together. There were people there who are still members after all these years, people who had been members there in the past and people who had never been there. We were made into one Body in worship. There were people who came, broken, wounded and suffering with illness and pain, who left whole, healed and restored!
It was profound.
I am blown away by the beauty that is humanity. It so far surpasses all the rest of creation! People become glory in a hug. We become beauty as worshipers. We glimpse eternity in the generations, as we pass the torch of faith to our children. As I meditate on these thoughts I begin to understand who I am am in my inmost being. I am a lover. I am an adorer. I am a rock, because the Rock is in me. He is our greatest fan.
He is the One who makes us tick! He leads me out of the fog and onward to higher heights day by day.
Thank You, Jesus.
