Our Word for the Day is      A-W-E-S-O-M-E

It is a commonly used word of teenagers (and others who wished they were) when

someone is S-O impressed or just can’t find a better word to describe A-W-E of the

excitement.  S-O what do W-E do?  W-E merely substitute “A-W-E-S-O-M-Ewhich

is a great example of undermining its real import.  Admit it, not just S-O-M-E of us

do it but that includes M-E as well; rather than shortchanging who is listening, stop

and consider where and when “A”W-E-S-O-M-E

Might this be another case where a word gets overused and it sticks, e.g. extremely

shocking; horrific: however, awful, bloody images is its correct use,   “She is awful

pretty (?)” can be confusing and contradictory.  It’s sometimes tough to find the

right word because A-W-E  should carry the feeling of “reverence” and “respect”

mixed with “fear” and “wonder.”  “Fear of the Lord” is the beginning of wisdom and

Jesus is said to have performed many miracles or “signs and wonders” as a way of

reflecting his deity.  Therefore, Jesus is A-W-E-S-O-M-E because He is The Author:

Creation is A-W-E-S-O-M-E  because it is endless and beyond comprehension; what

is truly A-W-E-S-O-M-E should be reserved for Creation’s Creator, The Son of GOD.

Father, what a privilege W-E have in bringing our prayer into your A-W-E-S-O-M-E  Presence seeking your wisdom and mercy.  As a child needs to listen, we are blessed and experience your grace.  Through the Son, we pray: Jesus Help Us.
