Keep the Iowa Standard Going!
God’s immediate immensity overwhelms me. He’s present everywhere and yet He’s present to me. There are more planets, and stars, and galaxies than we have a number to describe. God created them all. He upholds them by the power of His word. And yet He touched me. He touched me and now I’m no longer the same.
The God shaped hole in my life ached for Him even when I denied Him. Stumbling like a blind man in a world filled with light I couldn’t see what was around me and I couldn’t see where I was going. Landing in a ditch I thought the fetid water was clear and the over grown wilderness of weeds was a garden. Then He touched me and oh what joy filled my soul.
Raising me up from my graveyard of sin He gave me a new life, gave me my soulmate as a wife, and allowed me to work in His garden. And since I’ve met this blessed savior, since he’s cleansed and made me whole I’ll never cease to praise him I’ll shout it while eternity rolls, “He touched me, Oh He touched me, and oh the joy that floods my soul! Something happened and now I know He touched me and made me whole.”
