Once a bird left a seed behind On a cliff where no plant should be The seed struggled wanting to be a pine. But this, no place to grow a tree. Life won’t last upon that rock. Why even try? occurred to me. But the seed sent its roots through the cracks in futile hope to grow. “It’s more of a bush than a tree,” mocked a passing crow. Then from this twisted shrub God’s light did blaze. An old man climbed up to have a gaze. The light changed the tree to a holy place. For Moses and Israel it became a sign of God’s greater plans and design. Pointing to a future rock and dying tree Where God would hang to set them free.
There the angel of the LORD appeared to him in flames of fire from within a bush. Moses saw that though the bush was on fire it did not burn up. Exodus 3:2 NIV
My soul is downcast within me; therefore I will remember you from the land of the Jordan, the heights of Hermon—from Mount Mizar. Deep calls to deep in the roar of your waterfalls; all your waves and breakers have swept over me. (Psalm 42:6-7 NIV)
Sometimes I miss a beautiful scene, because I see superficially. Sometimes I miss God’s voice, because I listen half heartedly.
Stop! Listen and understand.
Let the roar of God’s waterfall of love sweep into your deep places God’s deep mercy and grace calling to your deep need.
His forgiveness extends beyond forever, I’m in awe of His grace for me. His loves endures forever, I’m in awe of His compassion given to me. Jesus is right and just in all His ways, I’m in awe of His plans for me. He is my Savior, Shepherd, and King. In awe I’m brought to His banquet hall, Where His banner over me is love, and I am in awe of all He has done for me.
He does not treat us as our sins deserve or repay us according to our iniquities. For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is His love for those who fear Him; as far as the East is from the West, so far has he removed our transgressions from us. As a father has compassion on his children, so the LORD has compassion on those who fear him; Psalm 103:10-13
Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne; love and faithfulness go before you. Psalm 89:14
He has brought me to His banquet hall, And his banner over me is love. Song of Solomon 2:4
