He Takes My Breath Away

himWhat is it that happens when I contemplate Christ crucified?

Something in me- deep in my being, my soul- is activated. I no longer experience fear, worry, and passing things weighing me down. Somehow I am lifted above that because my heart is captivated.

Everything in me is magnetically attracted to Him- to that experience of Him crucified- that everything that before consumed me is somehow extracted from me and absorbed by Him.

He leaves me speechless- His love outpoured- then soaks me, washes me, and makes all things new.

Somehow, through this, all in me is ordered and finds its place before Him. Here I find the assurance of all grace and love.

He takes my breath away.
