God with us.”

I turned the radio down, driving in silence.
I had to think about this.

How amazing this would have sounded to God’s
    chosen people, living under the burden of the law.
        Living on this side of the curtain.

God with us. 
      Not over us, like a dictator, but with us, walking among us.
   Strong, wise hands leading us along.
            The fragrance of His presence, the joy of His smile.
       The miracle of being pursued by the Creator and ultimate Lover.

A few songs later, and again—Emmanuel!

There on the dark, snowy road I stopped. And I sang.

God, the One with us—no words exist to say how awesome You are!
