hushed and awed

I saw King Kong today.

Just an ape
No…a computer generated image

Until he moves his arm just in time for the dinosaur to rip through it rather than the girl he holds in his hand.

That’s when my heart changed.

What is it about sacrifice for someone, that is so beautiful...

That draws our hearts to the one who gives for us. To the one who is viciously protective and passionate. So many trudge along in life without ever dreaming it is real. They go to the movies and feel as if their hearts would break for the want of it, and then go get a hambuger at Mcdonalds's. Feelings gone, hope gone, life goes on. It IS real. You are real. I want to be near You. I want to hide beneath Your shadow and be safe forever. Yahweh. You have thrown yourself before the beast of sin for me. You have let it rip You to shreds while You covered me with the palm of Your hand to keep me safe. You let it tear until we thought all hope was lost. And then…

from the ashes a fire was woken, restored was body broken, not all hope was lost. From sorrow now all can sing…THE CROWNLESS, BEHOLD, HE IS KING! *


*a Tolkien poem I tweaked a little...
