it's jesus

it's that giggle you can't hold back.
that shake of your head that says, "how could this be real?"
it's the awkward way your arms move up and down and all around because they can't just hang by your side- they have to do something.
it's how you lift your hands and cover your face and bow down low and let sweet Jesus sing over you. sing over you.

it's the presence of God, my friends.

have you ever experienced it? you'd know it if you did. and you wouldn't forget it. and if you were honest with yourself, no matter how badly you'd rather not "go there", you want to experience it again. He just does that to you.

i close my eyes and lift my head to heaven and wonder. i wonder how will we survive being face-to-face with Him for all of eternity? 

because in the spiritual and physical presence of my Maker, i surely will explode. won't i? i cannot think of what on earth will hold me together. but then, i suppose that's why we won't explode, because we won't be on this earth.

why does Jesus let us have that giggle? that giddiness? that overwhelming sensation of joy and love and awe all at once? why does He sing over us a sweet lullaby of love as we are, at the very same time, singing to Him? how does that work? what is holding me together and why am i not shattered and melting on the floor, a pile of Divine love-stricken mess?

For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, 
so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.

oh my stars.

let Him sing over you tonight.
cry. laugh. swing your arms. shake your head. cover your face. dance.
and rest assured: you won't explode, but it's definitely ok to feel like you will.
