God is not how you expect Him to be

Early Sunday -  finding the words.

the prayer of Isaiah the prophet went something like this:

"Please God that You would open the skies and visit us,
even if it means we have a terrible earthquake, because this world can not stand your holiness.

"Make your name known, not only to those who seek you but to your enemies,
even if it appears to us like a out of control forest fire, light up our world
so that All people will know that you are here, right now.

"We expected one thing from you, and you are doing another.
your works are always a shock and surprise to us because we
have so little understanding of your Holiness, mercy and grace.

"No one is like you, we can not perceive neither comprehend the vastness of
Your goodness toward us. If we will study your ways, do your works, and rejoice in justice,
You will meet us and act on behalf of us.

"All day long we sin and our sin clings to us and makes us stink;
There is no vitality left in us because of the captivity of our wickedness.
We do not even remember You to ask forgiveness because our mind is dulled and dark.

But now, Oh Lord, You are our Father.
We are the clay and You, our potter;
Al of us are the work of Your hand.
