O happy day!

O happy day!

When Jesus washed.

Washed my sins away.

Sister Act 1 & 2 will always give me goosebumps.

I dont understand how we can continue to live like this, when the greatest thing on earth has happened to us. Do you ever read scripture and think...oh my God...what the? And sort of have this moment where your life on earth completely fades and you're lost in a sense of ecstasy about what God has done for us?

I do.

Do you put the Bible down, and then a few minutes later revert to the mess of your life, with all of its supposed burdens and harsh realities to overcome?

I do.


Do you live with this joy at the back of your mind and lean on it when hard times come?

I do.

Do you live in flashes and daydreams, impulses and gists of excitement-like your soul is ebbing and flowing through life and scripture, trying to negotiate and make sense of the two?

I do.

It's so strange. How to reconceptualize the mind? Mmm. One day I'll be gone...some sort of lost memory. And finally get to see if what I believed in was true. How do you do this, and not explode from the overload?
