I find myself searching….
searching for words that come anywhere close
to describing You
I repeat so many of the same descriptors
over and over
and over and over
and they always seem to want for more.
And You are all those things
My mouth and mind get frustrated
that I can’t come up with more
to describe You and how much I think of You.
To worship you.
And then I remember
how in Your Word
it says that the the winged ones surround Your throne
repeating “Hoy, Holy, Holy…”
over and over
and over and over
A repetition of what and who You are.
And I think about the repetitious worship
of the mysterious ones in heaven
and it seems to me
that there just aren’t enough words
to describe perfect Divinity
to ascribe perfect worth to You
and we repeat and we repeat
for all eternity
and our minds are blown
trying to fathom

…I saw the Lord. He was sitting on a lofty throne, and the train of his robe filled the Temple. Attending him were mighty seraphim, each having six wings. With two wings they covered their faces, with two they covered their feet, and with two they flew. They were calling out to each other,
‘Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of Heaven’s Armies!
The whole earth is filled with his glory!’
Their voices shook the Temple to its foundations, and the entire building was filled with smoke.
– Isaiah 6:1-3 (NLT)
…I saw a throne in heaven and someone sitting on it. The one sitting on the throne was as brilliant as gemstones—like jasper and carnelian. And the glow of an emerald circled his throne like a rainbow. Twenty-four thrones surrounded him, and twenty-four elders sat on them. They were all clothed in white and had gold crowns on their heads. From the throne came flashes of lightning and the rumble of thunder. And in front of the throne were seven torches with burning flames. This is the sevenfold Spirit[b] of God. In front of the throne was a shiny sea of glass, sparkling like crystal.
In the center and around the throne were four living beings, each covered with eyes, front and back. The first of these living beings was like a lion; the second was like an ox; the third had a human face; and the fourth was like an eagle in flight. Each of these living beings had six wings, and their wings were covered all over with eyes, inside and out. Day after day and night after night they keep on saying,
“Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God, the Almighty—
the one who always was, who is, and who is still to come.”
Whenever the living beings give glory and honor and thanks to the one sitting on the throne (the one who lives forever and ever), the twenty-four elders fall down and worship the one sitting on the throne (the one who lives forever and ever). And they lay their crowns before the throne and say,
“You are worthy, O Lord our God,
to receive glory and honor and power.
For you created all things,
and they exist because you created what you pleased.”
– Revelation 4:2-11 (NLT)

The expansion of our personal understanding comes from recognising that God is not only majestic but very real in our lives (James 4:8-10) 8 Draw close to God, and he will draw close to you… the comforting assurance that our search is rewarded when we search for him and the words are given us.
Thank you for the comment, trotter387. You are very right.
I am thankfully not searching for God, but find myself searching for the words to describe His awesomeness.
