The grandeur of unutterable nearness

“I Am Who Is”
Presents a certain grandeur in God
Perhaps that’s the point
Because if
God Is
He must be all
Equally wholly unattainable
And unspeakably personal
Present tense third person singular verb
To Be
Yet dialectal so To Be
Adjectively personal

We fear His grandeur
As God
Yet we crave His love
As Father
We live in awe of Him
As Creator
And act through Him
As Love
We hope in Him
As author
So to return to Him
As His child

    1. Yes and a God Who Is must be above all things, far beyond human understanding and, AT THE SAME TIME, immediate and near beyond all human imagination. Praise God!
