The Almighty.

I wish I could always see Christ this way:

" I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse, and He who sat on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and wages war.His eyes are a flame of fire, and on His head are many diadems; and He has a name written on Him which no one knows except Himself. He is clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God. And the armies which are in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, were following Him on white horses. From His mouth comes a sharp sword, so that with it He may strike down the nations, and He will rule them with a rod of iron; and He treads the wine press of the fierce wrath of God, the Almighty. And on His robe and on His thigh He has a name written, "KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS."Then I saw an angel standing in the sun, and he cried out with a loud voice, saying to all the birds which fly in midheaven, "Come, assemble for the great supper of God,so that you may eat the flesh of kings and the flesh of commanders and the flesh of mighty men and the flesh of horses and of those who sit on them and the flesh of all men, both free men and slaves, and small and great." And I saw the beast and the kings of the earth and their armies assembled to make war against Him who sat on the horse and against His army.

And the beast was seized, and with him the false prophet who performed the signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image; these two were thrown alive into the lake of fire which burns with brimstone.And the rest were killed with the sword which came from the mouth of Him who sat on the horse, and all the birds were filled with their flesh." Revelation 19:11-21

I make God so small so often.
I don't see Him as the King returning in His glory.
Often I forget that He still rules the universe.
And I forget that He rules my life.
I am prone to think that the people in this world are so big,
and I start to think that God is weak.
My Christianity becomes weak
and I become ashamed to speak up about Christ
but..
"He's not a baby in the manger no more
He's not a broken man on the cross
He didn't stay in the grave
and He's not staying in heaven forever..."

God is in control.
He is Almighty.
He is God.
and I resolve to not rob Him of His glory in my view of Him.
