I see the work of Your Hands
Galaxies spin in a Heavenly dance of God
All that You are is so overwhelming

I hear the sound of Your voice
All at once it’s a gentle and thundering noise oh God
All that You are is so overwhelming

I delight myself in You
Captivated by Your beauty
I’m overwhelmed, I’m overwhelmed by You

God, I run into Your arms
Unashamed because of mercy
I’m overwhelmed, I’m overwhelmed by you

I know the power of Your Cross
Forgiven and free forever You’ll be my God

“Overwhelmed” by Big Daddy Weave, Contemporary Christian artist

This song sums up exactly how I feel about God. He is so overwhelming! I am constantly in awe of our God. I am overwhelmed by His timing and grace. He overwhelms me with the joy that he brings to my heart after I spend time in prayer and in His word. I am overwhelmed by the fact that every time I read His word it hits me differently than the last time I read the same verse. His word is living and active. Isn’t that overwhelming? He overwhelms me as I continue to be amazed when I see the Holy Spirit at work or how I get chills when I hear a story that so clearly has God’s hand all over it. The peace that washes over me when I am stressed and there is no other explanation than God, overwhelms me. When I think about the fact that he died a brutal death on the cross for me, I am overwhelmed. It overwhelms me to think because I am saved by grace that every time I go to Him and repent, I am forgiven. No questions asked, just forgiven. The fact that I, in no way, deserve His grace and he gives it anyway, overwhelms me. God loves me and that in itself is overwhelming. Every aspect of our mighty and wonderful God is overwhelming. I hope today you are blessed to be overwhelmed by our loving God.

 “When I think of all this, I fall to my knees and pray to the Father, the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth. I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through the Spirit. Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God. “ Ephesians 3:14-19

Overwhelming? I think so.


Gracious God, I pray that every day we will be overwhelmed by your love and power. In Your Name, Amen
