I miss the wonders of God all the time. I tend to be so self-involved that I fail to look up and behold the majesty of the One who loves me so much He redeemed me. “I Stand In Awe” by Christ Tomlin and Nicole Serrano inspires me to consider God in all his glory and discover more about Him in Scripture.
