How are you going to enjoy some awesome today?
Gloria in Excelsis Deo
“…the angel was joined by a huge angelic choir singing God’s praises: Glory to God in the heavenly heights, Peace to all men and women on earth who please him.” Luke 2:13-14 (The Message)
“How do you experience awe? What things cause you to become speechless when you see them?”
For me it’s often aspects of creation that leave me awe-inspired, and in particular, mountains, and seeing the world from above. So the photo I took yesterday of misty mountains taken from the air above Cyprus, reminds me of the awe I felt as I looked down on this scene.
I wonder how we’d respond to the awesome singing of the angels as they awaited and announced the birth of the God-man, come to bring an awesome peace to all men and women “with whom he is pleased”.
My reading this morning suggests that this Christmas, we “make an attempt to regain those awe-inspiring moments with God… Don’t let your relationship with him be ordinary, but rather make it extraordinary”.
Today I’m going to look for things that create a sense of awe and thankfulness, and try to remember to praise God for it.
Will you come back and tell me how you enjoyed awesome today?
