for the place where thou standest is holy ground."
Acts 7:33 KJV

"Filled with wonder, awe struck wonder, 
At the mention of Your name. 
Jesus Your name is power, 
Breath and living water, 
Such a marv'lous mystery." 
(Revelation Song Lyrics)

Isn't it just wonderful when The Lord jiggles you awake at 2:00 AM just to spend time with you?  It is 3:10AM now and I just had to pen some of my ponderings.  

Above are a portion of the lyrics to the "Revelation" Song.  I have shared with friends the fact that the last few Sundays in our worship service... I have set and wept at the mere thought of what I see The Lord doing around me.  Things that I have prayed about for years being transformed before my very eyes, not because of me... but probably in spite of me and my feeble attempts to make them happen.  Usually when I am awakened at this hour I feel lead to pray for special needs that I have been made aware of, or people who God places on my mind at that given time.  Tonight I did that very thing but then just sat back in "AWE" and praise of the mighty God that I love and serve.
I never want to lose the "WONDER"!

wonder  [ wúndər ]  amazed admiration or awe - something marvelous: a miracle or other cause of intense admiration - extraordinarily good: exciting admiration or amazement by virtue of being outstandingly good, effective, or unusual

Many, O Lord my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done, and thy thoughts which are to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee: if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered.  (Psalm 40:5)


  1. Thank-you. Sometime our trouble's blind us to that which we know is so true.They knowledge which we know that someone besides us knew before we drew our first breath.What strength we would need to fight our battles.

    1. Dear Anonymous... thank you so much for your comment and for reading my musings from a long sleepless night. It is like Peter walking on the water: when we have our eyes fixed on our Savior we tread on our troubles... but as soon as our gaze is fixed on the trouble - we begin to sink in despair. I have used this verse before in an earlier blog post but feel it is so fitting here:
      "When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee. Fear not: for I am with thee:" (Isaiah 43: 2 & 5a)
      Blessings, Sylvia
