Awesome has somewhat been relegated to simply describing excitement, as in when one beats a level in a video game or, likes the way a certain pair of shoes looks. It’s meaning watered down to a verb in the likes of ‘wow’ or ‘cool’, over the years by generations. Not intentionally, it’s just something that happens. Now I’m guilt of this too. Though since first writing this, I have used it in place of “oh, man that’s neat” less and less. If you do it, no biggie. I’m just sayin’. Let’s get back to using the proper words at the proper times. Ya dig? In it’s truest sense, it means Awe-inspiring, completely and utterly filled beyond understanding, with ‘awe.’ What is awe? Simply but yet only meaning, literally, mouth agape, eyes focused, unable to breath, to even comprehend what the viewer is looking upon. He or she is ‘in awe.’ There is only one who can conjure up this involuntary action where absolute quiet, incomprehension and ultimate meekness join together.
JESUS CHRIST, YOU ARE AWESOME.
