Inspired by Psalms 19:1 and the song So Will I (100 Billion X) by Hillsong United

Waiting for Radiance

June 20, 2020



I am called to my window to look
Time after time I trust blindly
After several seemingly pointless gazes
My knees go weak beneath me
I lie in my room and realize
Everything I saw was the miracle

I get up once more and peer around curtains
The sun becomes this brilliant thing
It glints off of cars and dew
I marvel at the splendor of light
And feel safe in the One telling it to shine

    replying: the verse we read in class (this is just an example not an actual verse lol): Glory be in His name, the Almighty, for He shall deliver you from sinful tongues.
    the verse i see online: The Big One protect you from the mean mean voices of big bad devil.

    replying: awww the first dress sounds so cute since it was a gift from your cousin but “The other dress is its polar opposite; a seafoam blue-green knee length beauty with simple ruffle and lace detailing“ WHAT THE HECK THAT SOUNDS GORGEOUS. *cries in fashion loving*
    oh my gosh the correcting other kids cracked me up. i went to a baptist elementary school so we did recitations of verses every week and kids would misread stuff all the time...FOR 31 OR SO KIDS. i went on a field trip once (with the same class LOL) and we cooked a pretzel but we each took turns reading the recipe book to the class and halfway through my teacher was like “ok stop let’s let sunny finish the rest of it so we can roll the dough” LOL
    also i’m not sure which translation we read but I remember liking the one my elementary school used and then looking up one of my favorite verses online and it being SO UGLY cause it was a diff translation version LOL

    Hey, quick question! So, I've been using the dictionary of obscure sorrows for some inspiration and I saw on their website in a post from ten years ago that they were making an actual book. Do you know anything about that? I looked it up but couldn't find it. If there is one, I'd so love to get it!
