Terrifying Presence

A burning bush moment

So many encounters
None like tonight's.

The air grew heavy
Weighing down on me
My limbs numb

An otherness upon me
Pinned down
Breathing is difficult

Perhaps this is how Daniel felt
Prostrate before God

For the first time
I glimpse at how awesome
How terrifying, how petrifying
God is

I could be snuffed out in a moment
Not just small but utterly insignificant
Nothinq, less than nothing
Terrified but cannot run

Great ls The Lord
Awesome. Majestic.

I have no words even to repent
Prostrate is not low enough!
O that the ground would open and swallow me!

May I always live in reverent fear of my God!
