Indescribable

This is a post I drafted on January 8th. It was prompted by my spirit being so deeply moved in church by the song "Indescribable". I remember the previous weeks had been difficult beginnning with December 31st being my beloved's birthday and to me a "couples" holiday. Then, the first week of January was stressful at work as the week prior to classes starting is always difficult for my office. (I work at a college.) So, that Sunday I remember I just raised my heart to praise Him when this song was sung. I came home after church that day and drafted my own description of God using some of the words in the song (indescribable, uncontainable, incomparable, and unchangeable). Other than that, this is what flowed from my heart. I want to make it my ring tone but haven't yet. Tonzr.com is not working with my Verizon. (Any free ring tone sites? Let me know.)

Indescribable
He can't be described in a way to do Him justice.
We can't put into words all that He is.
All that He does, gives, and is can't be scripted.


Unimaginable/Unfathomable
What He does for us is more than we could ever imagine. (Eph. 3:20)
God makes the most impossible odds into amazing miracles.
He makes good out of the worst of the worse.
Only He could cause an atheist to proclaim Christ as Lord.

Unexplainable
Every prayer, every word uttered, is heard by God at the same time.
All of creation, earth, stars and galaxies are His doing.
He knows every hair on our heads.
He has told every lightning bolt where to go.

His depth of love is unexplainable.

Uncontainable
His power and love cannot be contained.
His majesty is too large.
What He can do is not restricted.
His devotion cannot escape us.
His Spirit cannot be contained in His children.
He cannot contain His forgiveness but gives it freely.

Incomparable
He cannot be compared to anything else.
His love cannot be measured by any other.
His ways out scale any plan of ours.
His faithfulness is without compare.
His forgiveness is pure, unlike another.


Unchangeable
He is the same today, tomorrow, and forever.
His character remains through and through.
His love is steady when we are not.
His forgiveness is never ending, never changing.


In Awe of All He Is,

This is a beautiful song, one of my faves. These words, knowing the place in your heart from which they came...they just make my heart hurt and happy at the same time.

He Is your Beloved, Paula.

Things are so busy for me right now...I'm really missing connecting with you more! Need to try harder to make more time.

Sending love,

This is just beautiful, Paula! What a great reminder to us all of how "indescriblable" our Lord truly is.

Have a great weekend!

Sheryl said...

Great words. He truly is indescribable, isn't He? But you did a great job of putting words to all He is.

Paula... Thank you so much for these pearls of wisdom and encouragement. You’ve given me something to hold on to with this post... believing in a ‘God who can, and who does’ because he is indeed INDESCRIBABLE! Amen!

Beautiful! He is all that to everyone, everyday. How sad tht there are those who don't claim this wonderful gift with all it's blessings.

Great post Paula. I love this song. It's one of my favorites.

About Kenny G....it really may not have been his rule (about only signing merchandise). I feel kinda bad about writing that now. I just felt kinda dumb. :(
My co-worker said the same thing about me taking one of my old cd's. That would have been funny huh?
I had no idea he would actually be at the back signing them. It really was a great concert.

I know what you mean about 101 things to pack! It can be a chore.
I knew I was gonna just get up early and go straight home the next morning so I didn't take a whole lot.

I'm keeping you in my thoughts & prayers Paula.
Hope you have a really good week.

Love,
Valerie
