God’s glory is on tour in the skies, God-craft on exhibit across the horizon.  …their words aren’t heard, their voices aren’t recorded, but their silence fills the earth: unspoken truth is spoken everywhere.

-psalm 19

the more i learn, the more i am convinced that we live our lives blinded to the miraculous.  that we live cocooned inside of our preconceived notions.  notions that require us to be good enough, righteous enough, or holy enough to earn the love of  this being we called God.

notions that have, for the large majority of our lives, defined us.  they control our habits, tell us what to buy and how to dress.  notions that say that “good christians dont ____“.  notions that control, that we allow to control.

i think we had it right, growing up.  when the biggest questions we ever asked was whose house we’d play at the next day.  when gi joes, legos and starwars equaled life.  when love wasnt something we questioned, or wondered about.  when we knew we were loved.  when we knew our value because we didnt know anything else.

i dont want to live inside of these notions.  of believing that miracles are the result of something i have to do.  that grace must be earned, that unconditional love is conditional.  i dont want to live fenced inside of these false beliefs.  these controlling pretenses.

and i think thats that He’s been after all along.

to get us to step outside of our barriers.  to stop trying to earn what He’s already paid the price for.  to believe, that this unconditional love, is unconditional.

and that whispered inside this silent fullness, exists something ancient.  something we knew at one time, something that we know must still exist because our hearts still yearn for it.  something that we know if only because we see the lack of it in our lives.  we hear the echoes as it call to our souls.  it calls for us to to believe that unspoken truth is spoken everywhere.

and that this truth is simple.  it is ancient.  and it is beautiful.

He will never let us go.  ever.
