Your love is deep.
Your love is high.
Your love is long.
Your love is wide.

Your love is deeper than my view of grace.
Higher than this worldly place.
Longer than this road I travel.
Wider than the gap you've filled.

I went to a new church yesterday - Crossroads Alliance in Ebensburg. it was a really different church experience, like nothing i have ever seen on a sunday morning. everybody was just doin their own thing during the worship time - wandering around, chatting with people, waving praise flags, going up to the altar, standing, kneeling, sitting, and even lying face down on the floor. and communion was just left on the table in the front, and you could go and take it at any time during the worship time. i didnt really know what to do with that, so i stayed in my pew which was marked "reserved for visitors." (i would have taken a picture, but i figured that would be a lil bit much, it was my first time there after all)

once i got past the shock of this new style, it kind of intrigued me. after all, worship isnt about what God can do for us or how it makes us feel, it is about what we have to say to God and how each individual does that differently and it was kind of nice to see that on a sunday morning, in a church setting rather than just at an evening service on a college campus.

the sermon was about the prophetic process which also intrigued me, because i dont think people really talk much about it. i'm still not sure i agree with absolutely everything that was said with regards to actual prophesy, but i felt that the general pattern was extremely practical and i saw how it worked out in the life of Joseph, and in my own life as well. God has great things planned for us, but we're not always ready for them right away, so He has to take time to teach us the things we need to know to get us to where we need to be. and the way that God gets us to trust fully in Him is to strip away all the other things we have placed our trust in. it is only after he has completely broken us and we have nothing left but Him that He starts to build us up again, and along the way we learn the things that we need to be ready to do the great things He has called us to.

I am still in the development stage. i have been shaken, broken, and brought to my knees. but God is with me, and i know that he will never leave me or forsake me, and that he's still workin on me. after all, "Greater things are still to be done in this city."

It took Him a week to make the moon and the stars, the Sun and Earth and Jupiter and Mars. How loving and patient He must be...
