Knots That Bind #6...

"Blessed be the Lord God, the God of Israel, who only does wondrous things." -Psalm 72:18 A few years ago I wrote a song called "My Jesus." I had been sitting and reading this verse over and over while flying to Cape Cod to sing at a womens event. I kept thinking about those last few words

"who ONLY does WONDROUS things."

Job 5:9 says that our God "does great things and unsearchable, marvelous things without number."

My God, ONLY does WONDROUS, UNSEARCHABLE, MARVELOUS things AND they are without number. It was in that moment when I stopped and thought, "Sarah, why aren't you seeing all of those wondrous things? Why does it sometimes seem like I think that the things God does are small and insignificant? Not needing to be noticed?"

My problem is myself. I have made Sarah too big and my Creator too small. I have tucked Him into a nice spot near me but not straight in front of me. It's no wonder that I miss His innumerable wondrous works.

So this week My lyrics to my song "My Jesus," are my blog as well as my prayer:

My Jesus

I'll be the grain of sand You are the water wash over me I'll be the star You are the night wrapped around me

Just so I am small And it's You that are seen Because You are God And You came to die for me

Lord let me see Your glory Help me to know Your touch Lord help me hear Your voice So I can be right where You are

There's nothing small About my Jesus He is powerful! His works are wondrous! My Jesus

I'll be the tree You are the wind blowing through me I am the child You are my Father watch over me

(This is my newest blog in a weekly series where I share my thoughts behind some of my favorite scriptures out of the bible. If you want to see why I've started this weekly undertaking you can go back and read my blog called "Pirates And Their Knots...")
