After a long drive from Colorado we had the opportunity to make the short drive from Prescott, AZ to visit the Grand Canyon. My wife, Elissa, who is a worship leader, song writer, artist, and author had this insight to share. This video is featured on her website www.sonflowerz.com along with other videos and beautiful encouragement on her blog.
The music is original. I wanted a soundscape that conveyed how I felt beholding such a marvel... and the Grand Canyon.
We are meant to delight in the fingerprints of God.
The depth of the canyon made me feel small, the mystery of why it looks just the way it does left so many questions. My approach to God the Father should be so filled with awe and fear. When we are made to feel small we see the beginning of 'the Fear of the Lord', or the awe and respect He deserves. I will never wrap my mind around God, understand just what I am beholding, my eyes can't take Him in. When I see my wife encouraging girls and opening the word, I see the same fingerprints of wonder that baffle me.
There is a depth put inside of us, who are filled with the Spirit, that baffles the beholder.
Let the gold of the Holy Spirit show by scuffing off the graffiti we call our dignity.
