I’m listening to the live version of “Our God Reigns” * cranked as high as my system will go… and it is not loud enough!
I’ve invited the angelic armies to join me in worship… for the Rockies to raise their voice, for rocks and trees…for all of Creation to join the chorus… and it’s still not loud enough!
I’ve listened to it three times now and am in tears. I am incapable of giving God the praise He is due. Worthy of. Justly deserves.
Perhaps that’s my greatest short coming… worshipping Him fully. I mean it… there are so many things I fall short of, yet it may be that none is graver than curbing my full heart’s adulation.
I know grace, I know I’m forgiven, cleansed, His, the beloved… and I know, I know… but in this moment of adoration I simply cannot express all that’s in my heart to Him... and it is that which I most want to do!
I fall silent.
The song ends with the live audience applauding… and it is not loud enough, not long enough.
