awe-full

AWE-FULL

Great and holy God

awe and reverence

fear and trembling

do not come easily to us

for we are not Old Testament Jews

or Moses

or mystics

or sensitive enough.

Forgive us

for slouching into Your presence with little expectation

and less awe than we would eagerly give a visiting dignitary.

We need

neither Jehovah nor a buddy-

neither “the Great and Powerful Oz” nor “the man upstairs.”

Help us

to want what we need…

You

God

and may the altar of our hearts

tremble with delight

at

Your visitation

amen.
