We are so casual with our words and do not even really think of the meaning. Think of the word awesome.  That you would stand in awe of someone.   That someone or something would have to be totally beyond any other words.  Almost breath taking, to stop and have to stand and be amazed and wondered at the totally wonder.  The pictures of the universe could be one of those things I might stand in awe of or even the night sky on a clear night up in the mountains when the stars are so bright and seem so close you could reach up and touch them.  A sunset with the many colors, the paintings of God.  For truly only a creative marvelous God can create the starts and sunsets. 

And then I do something as mundane as getting conference rooms set up for a 6 month team and the manager says “thank you, your awesome”.  Or after helping a co-worker accomplish something on the computer they were having trouble with they say “Thanks your awesome, K”.  I cannot receive that high of a compliment, because I am nothing that someone would “stand in awe of me”.  So, I have made my reply to be “no there is only One who is awesome”.  What is even special is that now my supervisor hears someone say that and he even says “no, only one is awesome”.  I love it.  There are so many other words you can tell someone, “your amazing”, “your wonderful” are some examples.  We should save the word Awesome for the one and only one who is truly AWESOME.  I woke up this morning and aske the Lord to help me write this and the chorus to the song we used to sing come up in my spirit.  I stand in awe of you.  If you are not familiar with with the song I suggest you find it and listen to it. I have included the words at the end of today’s blog. Listen in the quite where you can truly experience the awesome presence of God as you worship.  Only one is Awesome.

I Stand In Awe of You

You are beautiful beyond description
Too marvelous for words
Too wonderful for comprehension
Like nothing ever seen or heard
Who can grasp you infinite wisdom
Who can fathom the depth of your love
You are beautiful beyond description
Majesty enthroned above

And I stand, I stand in awe of you
I stand, I stand in awe of you
Holy God to whom all praise is due
I stand in awe of you
