Great and holy God
awe and reverence
fear and trembling
do not come easily to us
for we are not Old Testament Jews
or sensitive enough.
for slouching into Your presence with little expectation
and less awe than we would eagerly give a visiting dignitary.
neither Jehovah nor a buddy-
neither “the Great and Powerful Oz” nor “the man upstairs.”
to want what we need…
and may the altar of our hearts
tremble with delight
– Fredrick Ohler
