How do you describe what seems indescribable?
This is my sixth experience of Saturday Night Adoration at a Steubenville conference, and every time I try to describe the time, and every time words fail me. After some reflection, I realize that this inability to voice my encounters with Christ are normal. I am human, of course I can’t properly communicate a non-human encounter. I believe that each and every person in this arena tonight will agree.
But this is the beauty of Christ. Where words fail, God speaks. He reveals Himself to us in a way that we can receive and whether or not we can understand the encounter at the time, we know He is there. He understands that we, in our finite human capacity, need to encounter Him on our own level. He comes to each and every one of us in our own unique way, whether He brings us to our knees in tears, or He calms the seemingly unending storms within our hearts. He knows our hearts better than we ever will know them, so he speaks to each one individually because He is all-loving AND all-powerful.
