O, Lord my God, I am amazedó
That One who walks on the wings of the wind
Has deigned to walk with man.
You walked in the garden with Adam and Eve,
And You walked and talked with Enoch.
You promised to Your people, Israel,
That You would walk among them and be their God.
And when You came to earth in human form,
You walked from place to place,
Teaching, healing, and performing miracles.
You walked unharmed on stormy seas
To meet with your disciples.
You walked through crowds,
Unseen by those who sought you.
And following your resurrection,
You walked through doors unopened
To meet with your close friends.
You walked unrecognized by two who traveled
On the road to Emmaus
Until their eyes were opened.
I bow in praise to You, Almighty God,
Who walks still with those who love You.
You carry their burdens and share their griefs
And guide them in Your truths through Your Word.
I place both palms beside my face in wonder
That You would walk with me.

I'm right there with you in amazement! -- I think this will continue throughout eternity. <3 This description of God is so beautiful, "One who walks on the wings of the wind." I love your praise poem.

Exquisite. Thoroughly engrossing . . .

A beautiful job of capturing the amazing fullness of the presence of God throughout all of the moments you highlight. It's funny how we, as Christians, speak so often of our "walk" with God, when it is, and always has been, He who walked with us.

Great work!
