Cast Up A Highway



                                        AWESOME GOD


Sometimes the terrible awesomeness of God hits me and sends me reeling into deep meditation. It always carries its reward of a new closeness with my God. It happened this morning. In the beginning I was distracted with my mind wandering here and yon. Then I ‘woke up’ and commanded it to return. God is so good! Holy Spirit began to lead me in prayer.

Sorry, my Lord. I come to our meeting this morning with scattered thoughts; help me, Lord, to rein them in. That You even desire to meet with me is so amazing! Deep breath. Moses asked God, “what shall I say when they ask 'Who sent me’?” You responded, “Say the Great I AM sent me.” You, God, are not hemmed in by time. For You there is no ‘was, will be’, there is only I AM. Before You I bow down my heart, my 'who I am' I submit to You; help me become who You created me to be.

Exodus 3:13-14 (AMP)

13 And Moses said to God, Behold, when I come to the Israelites and say to them, The God of your fathers has sent me to you, and they say to me, What is His name? What shall I say to them? 14 And God said to Moses, I Am Who I Am and What I Am, and I Will Be What I Will Be; and He said, You shall say this to the Israelites: I Am has sent me to you!

  • Footnotes: Exodus 3:15 To know the name of God is to witness the manifestation of those attributes and apprehend that character which the name denotes.

Can you feel the depth of that name? 'I AM' signifies so much ~ timelessness, absolute love, supreme power, unimaginable expansion ~ an incomprehensible being, totally surrounding. There simply are not words to express the grandness of Who our God is. HIS LOVE FOR US  S SO APPARENT IN HIS WORD!

Psalm 91:14 (AMP)

Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness—trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never].

Isaiah 52:6 (AMP)

Therefore My people shall know what My name is and what it means; therefore they shall know in that day that I am He who speaks; behold, I Am!

Indeed my God! You are the great I AM! This measures so deep and so high and so wide. You revealed Your staggering magnificence to David, and it comes out here:

Psalm 139:1-10

O Lord, you have examined my heart

and know everything about me.

2 You know when I sit down or stand up.

You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.

Even when it’s my mind traveling on tangents.

3 You see me when I travel and when I rest at home.

You know everything I do.

4 You know what I am going to say

even before I say it, Lord.

5 You go before me and follow me.

You place your hand of blessing on my head.

6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,

too great for me to understand!

7 I can never escape from your Spirit!

I can never get away from your presence!

8 If I go up to heaven, you are there;

if I go down to the grave, you are there.

9 If I ride the wings of the morning,

if I dwell by the farthest oceans,

10 even there your hand will guide me,

and your strength will support me.

You are always with me. 

You will guide me.

You will always be my support. Your strength

upholds me, protects me, supports me.

Lord, You are so good! What a privilege to know You! Thank You that You continue to grow me closer to You. Thank You! I love being together with You, my Lord.

Greenest of green greeted me as I awoke that first morning in Alabama. Forest of trees are all around. The house had an excellent screened in porch where we enjoyed breakfast amidst birdsong each morning. One mockingbird greeted my friend with “judyjudyjudy” repeatedly. A lovely peaceful world to break from the hilarity of life. Breathe deeply and relax.


Then it was back to Denver where the semi-desert region lacked the lush green. However, Spring is just beginning and after it finally wins the battle with winter, we will have warm sunny days as it unfolds; then softly flowing breezes will caress my face as I walk and warm sunshine fill my heart with its light and love. It reminds me of my Lord with His gentle strength. My heart rejoices as I delight in the trees dressed in white and pink blossoms, and gardens coming alive again with red and yellow tulips, joyful daffodils, sweet smelling purple lilacs, pansies turning their vibrant faces to the sun. Spring! New life! However, tomorrow it will snow and temps will dip to near freezing; sadly, winter has not given up yet. So we can only be patient till the days of Spring's full victory.


You know I get so psyched waiting for Spring, that one day there is snow on the ground, I cry aghast “Christmas in May? No!” However, in reality, this is Colorado, and we do love it! Right? And there is something about rain and snow that refreshes and washes away the grime. We don’t get a lot of it here, so when it does come, it is refreshing, and we do need it. As I was driving down the street, I glanced at the mountains and they were green, green! Beautiful!


God is so good! He replenishes our souls with the things He knows we need. Each season brings His gifts for our enjoyment. Thank You loving Lord!
