Watching the Spirit Move




All around us.

Every day.

I see Him in the resolve I never knew existed in my grown son. He shines in the courage, faithfulness and trust of my dear mother-in-law. I almost hold my breath as He draws near to a woman willing to feel the pain of her past because her heart wants more of Him.

And I am in awe. He redeems tears. He holds hearts tenderly. He speaks softly. He turns meager human effort into the supernatural.

I am sucked in. I want to shake everyone around me and say, "Do you see it? Do you feel it? Can you believe it?" I can't look away. My eyes mist, yet a smile won't leave my face. I am mesmerized by His presence and my heart is pierced with one thought.

Who am I, that I get to sit so close?

Everything in me wants to sing,

There is none like You.
No one else can touch my heart like You do.
I could search for all eternity long and find
there is none like You.

I see You, Lord, and I am moved.
