Your love colors the dawn,
Your voice the power of thunder.
Your hand the healer of the weak.
Your love fills oceans
and Your voice calms the seas and You created me.
Your eyes are so amazing, so deep,
like crashing waves on cloudy seas
and these pounding waves they consume me.
There is so much more to you. So much I do not know.
So much love I have yet not encountered,
so much you over flow.
And just when I think I know your complexities,
You step into the light.
And just when I think I know Your voice,
You open up my ears.
It's like trying to know every single glowing star
on a cloudless night.
But Your depth and Your vastness
keep me running after you.”
Now & Forevermore * Shake Off the Dust
We exist to glorify God, to display His heart and character. And I just love how we are all uniquely built to do that. So every Friday I want to give you, uniquely designed by God, an opportunity to link up your thoughts on God, art, baking, photography, parenting, marriage, homeschooling, writing or blogging and more if they tie into or display the Lord somehow.
Here's how it works.
1. Link up as many blog posts as you want below by clicking the link below and following the prompts. (Perhaps think of old posts you want more exposure to as well as new ones.)
2. Let your readers know by including a link at the bottom of your post (or somewhere on your side bar) or paste my button code (found below and on the side bar).
3. Take a minute to visit and comment on another sweet lady or two's post. You're encouragement might be just what she needs to keep pressing on in being a voice in the darkness.

We can never truly know the depth and breadth of him - and what a powerful poem to show that! Sometimes, I think if God showed us the fullness of him, we couldn't handle it, so he reveals himself to us bit by bit and allow us to grow into who he is! Shalom in your week! ~Maryleigh
