Wow! Oh Lord, the whole earth proclaims your glory! The heavens alight!
The sun announces its coming with banners of blues and oranges, then yellows and pinks, followed by golden gilded clouds.
My heart begins to flutter sensing your majesty and beauty. You must be so beautiful Lord to have created such beauty in the world.
Do you love me?
Do you forgive me?
My heart ponders these questions that plague my mind this cool morning as I watch your majesty rise.
I ask forgiveness for yesterday’s sins.
Oh create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit with in me!
Please, I long to be in your presence, to be in communion with you again.
Hide your face from my sins and remove my shame.
It is only my pride that keeps shame here now, for you have blotted out all my iniquities and have made me as pure and white as the throne you sit on, as your Son that stands before you!
Suddenly, shadows are cast beneath me as the world around me is lit and I begin to feel a steady warmth.
I look up, your sun has risen!
In this moment you speak to my soul, my questions are answered.
I feel the piercing warmth of your love and with that I know my sins are forgiven as your light fills my inner being.
Indeed, you have restored in me the joy of your salvation and uphold me with a willing spirit.
Thank you Lord.
To you be the glory. Hallelujah!
