If you need a big God...

Sometimes we just need to know that God is big.

That He is bigger than today, bigger than right now. Because sometimes there are just no words and really, the only thing to say is His name: Jesus.

The One who holds all things together by his word. Sustains all things...with a breath.

What He says is what is true and this matters on days when you can't tell right side up from upside down. Because when this earth quakes, He isn't shaken. 

Jesus. Who loved us to the end. Full of Truth.
Jesus. Who sits now, fully finished, with full authority. Full of power.
Jesus. Ever hearing, ever interceding. Full of compassion.
Jesus. Ever calling, ever offering. Full of grace.

Offering one blessing after another.


The one who says, "I am the light of the world."
The one who says, "I am the bread of life."
The one who says, "If anyone is thirsty let him come to me and drink."
The one who says, "Before Abraham was born, I AM."
The one who says, "Did I not tell you that if you believed, you would see the glory of God?"

These are big things, I know. That's a lot of Jesus talk, you say.

But some days we look up and it seems like the whole place has gone dark. Like today ... when friends are moving cross country and parents and kids aren't speaking and illness is winning and a mother is trying to get out of bed- to bury a child.

Some days, we just need to know He is who He says He is ... we need to say it over and over and over again.  This one word.


Because some days it's all we've got.
And in feeble faith we lift up a shaky, frail hand and believe that it ...that He ...
has always been enough.

And He will be again today.
