Day 3: Where's God?


HE always does

even if you don't BELIEVE HE does

because GOD knows only to be

HIMSELF

&

HIMSELF is unlike anyone else.

Because no matter how you slice it,

even if you try to debate HIM

with a "BUT GOD"

HE is so GRACIOUS

that HE allows you to question HIM.

I believe HE is just so happy that you are talking to HIM

because if you are talking to HIM

then you are in relationship with HIM

&

if you are in relationship with HIM

then

HE will meet you right where you are

&

will respond to you

without words

because it is

HIMSELF who fills your heart

with more than words

because

HIS WORDS

are living,

beyond your understanding,

because you & I can never

and no other person on the face of this earth

can ever do what only GOD can do.

And the crazy thing is that all it takes

is one conversation

&

sometimes without words

as you look up

&

acknowledge

GOD

who

welcomes everyone,

yet HE isn't alone

because there is

HIS SON sitting with HIM

with HIS open arms

just ready

at every tick of the clock

to greet

you.

And not just hear you,

but to really listen to your heart

so HE can respond

with such a surreal response

that you start to wonder if it is really happening.

Because when GOD happens you can't explain it.

It is so beautifully precious

that it changes you in that very moment

that lasts for eternity.

And even if your conversation begins with a

"BUT GOD"

HE meets you right where you are

right where you are feeling

right where you may wish that you weren't.

I think of David

who never paraphrased his conversations with GOD

and GOD never paraphrased back to David,

for TRUTH is never paraphrased

for

HIS TRUTH is always TRUTH

that never changes

even if everything around you changes.

"BUT YOU, O LORD, are a GOD merciful and gracious,

slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness" (Psalm 86:15)

BUT GOD doesn't speak dead words,

for HIS WORD rose from the dead.

Oh may you experience HIS LOVE that goes beyond just a one sided conversation

because GOD is not like any other human on the face of the earth

because when HE says BUT

you better listen

because BUT GOD trumps every question imaginable

because

"BUT GOD demonstrates HIS own love for us in this:

While we were still sinners, CHRIST died for us" (Romans 5:8)

So when you ask

BUT GOD

be ever so thankful

that you can talk to HIM

just because

HE is oh so real

because

"HE LIVES" (listen to the song below)
