Beautiful Unseen


It only took a simple song this morning

To bring knees to the floor and hands to the sky

Tears falling from a face raised

Just a song

A reminder

A necessary pause from the inescapable noise and frantic pace of a normal day


The name so sacred

So holy

That once caused hearts to tremble and lips to refuse to repeat it

The sound of a breath

The Breath of Life itself

With a song, the name once again

Twists my heart

Turns it inside out

Wringing every bit of praise from its deepest places


Ancient One

“I Am Who I Am”

Forever present, unchanging in love and power, mercy and grace

Forgive me

Forgive us

When we forget

When we struggle against the worship of the beautiful Unseen

When our full ears can’t hear the cadence of Your whisper

When our eyes fail to take in the undeniable glory of every day miracles

When our busy hands distract us from Your hands at work


I cannot say it without being changed

In perspective

In reverence

My life and breath and meaning

My hope and purpose and motivation

My God

My Father

My Savior

My Friend

My (can I even bear the words?) Groom

My Everything


Bend my knees and lift my hands

Capture me with Your vastness

Focus my eyes on the glorious invisible

And my ears on Your still, small voice

And please, oh please

Let me never be the same…

Revelation 1:8 – “I am the Alpha and the Omega–the beginning and the end,” says the Lord God. “I am the one who is, who always was, and who is still to come–the Almighty One.”

1 Corinthians 8:6 – But we know that there is only one God, the Father, who created everything, and we live for him. And there is only one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom God made everything and through whom we have been given life.

Psalm 83:18 – Then they will learn that you alone are called the LORD, that you alone are the Most High, supreme over all the earth.
