A is for Awed by God

A is for Awed by God
Our David loves God.  This love for God is not his own.  He was not born that way.  He was not forced to love Him.  It is a gift from God through the wonderful, undeserved gift of God's GRACE for David through Jesus Christ.

   1 John 4:7-12 (New International Version)
   God's Love and Ours

    7Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. 8Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. 9This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son[a] into the world that we might live through him. 10This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for[b] our sins. 11Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. 12No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.
This is the wonderful testimony of David Lee Cochran when he received the gift of God's love and became part of God's family forever:         
On July 12, 2006 David and Mommy were discussing colors one morning while Mommy was getting ready for the day.  He wondered what colors Mommy likes and Mommy answered with several colors that she likes to wear, one of them being black.  David responded, “I don’t like black/dark because it reminds me of a sin heart. I have a dirty sin heart.”  Mommy proceeded to ask him if he wanted a clean heart and David said, “Yes!”  Mommy asked if he wanted to wait for Daddy to come home so we could pray together but David said, “I want a clean heart right now.”  So, that morning David told Jesus he had a dirty sin heart and he wanted a clean heart so he could go to heaven with God and Jesus someday.  Now David is part of God’s family!

Here is the first song David learned to sing: Our God is an Awesome God. 
Lyrics to Our God Is An Awesome God By: Rich Mullins
Hear it sung by Michael W. Smith

When He rolls up His sleeves
He ain't just putting on the ritz
(Our God is an awesome God)

There's thunder in His footsteps
And lightning in His fists
(Our God is an awesome God)

And the Lord wasn't joking
When He kicked 'em out of Eden
It wasn't for no reason
That He shed His blood
His return is very close
And so you better be believing that
Our God is an awesome God

Our God is an awesome God
He reigns from heaven above
With wisdom, power, and love
Our God is an awesome God

Our God is an awesome God
He reigns from heaven above
With wisdom, power, and love
Our God is an awesome God

And when the sky was starless
In the void of the night
(Our God is an awesome God)

He spoke into the darkness
And created the light
(Our God is an awesome God)

Judgement and wrath
He poured out on Sodom
Mercy and grace
He gave us at the cross
I hope that we have not
Too quickly forgotten that
Our God is an awesome God

Our God is an awesome God
He reigns from heaven above
With wisdom, power, and love
Our God is an awesome God

Our God is an awesome God
He reigns from heaven above
With wisdom, power, and love
Our God is an awesome God

Our God is an awesome God
He reigns from heaven above
With wisdom, power, and love
Our God is an awesome God

Our God is an awesome God
He reigns from heaven above
With wisdom, power, and love
Our God is an awesome God

Our God is an awesome God
He reigns from heaven above
With wisdom, power, and love
Our God is an awesome God

Our God is an awesome God
Our God is an awesome God

I love to see how David is awed by God.  Whether he is hearing a story about God from the Bible, marveling at His creatures (like roly polies), praying for God to heal a boo boo, noticing the imprint of a fern on our slate floor and bringing a live example from our front yard to match, describing the shapes of the clouds, wondering about how awesome heaven will be, or singing "Our God is an Awesome God", our David is awed by God.  That touches me, challenges me, and refreshes my soul.  Thank you, Lord, for our precious David!
