Awestruck!

 

My reading this morning came from the book of Genesis chapter 1.  As I read this familiar passage, I was totally awestruck by the creativity of God all coming from the sound of His voice.  I was awestruck that this same God continues to speak into the world today.  I was awestruck that this same God, wants to speak into lives, into our hearts.

As I turned to my Bible notes the writer said “how will you respond to what you have just read?”  The result of this time of reflection found its way into some jottings in my journal. I wanted to share this because, I hope it will lead you into some thoughts and reflections of your own.

 

So, here we go……

O Lord,

Amazing God,

You who spoke

And

Brought all things into being

At the sound of your voice

Order was brought

Into the chaos

O Lord,
Amazing God
You who spoke
And
The word became flesh
At the sound of your voice
Hope was brought
Into the world

O Lord,
Amazing God
You who spoke
And
Bore our shame
At the sound of your voice
Forgiveness came
From a Cross

O Lord,
Amazing God
You who spoke
And
Rose to life
At the sound of your voice
Peace was brought
To the human heart
O Lord,
Amazing God
You who spoke
And
Give hope to all
At the sound of your voice
Freedom breaks out
Into the world

O Lord,
Amazing God
You who spoke
And
Wants to be heard
At the sound of your voice
May I respond
To you

So, let me ask you, how do you want to respond?
