Do We Forget To Tremble?

There’s an older song by Nichole Nordeman called “Tremble.” I have loved it from the very moment I heard the song. It remains on my IPOD and has been on my “favorites” list for years.

She talks about how it’s so easy for us to become so caught up in the daily-ness of life down here that we get too casual with God. We forget how Holy, how divine, and how sacred He is. We forget to tremble.

One of my favorite lines is, “What a shame to think I’d appear so cavalier in the matter of salvation.”

I think it’s so easy to make ourselves bigger in our own eyes than we really are. And it’s so easy to make God smaller than He is.

Too easy.

My heart’s desire is that God will never let me grow too casual or too cavalier about Him. About my faith. I want to be sensitive to everything in life – everything around me and filter it as God’s child.

I want to remember that it’s a privilege to hear Him speak to me – to call my name and to choose me.

“oh let me not forget to tremble.”
