Be contented. Be cheerful. Do not have a murmuring spirit. But give thanks for all the blessings in your life so that God can bless you more. Have a humble spirit, so that God can exalt you. Do not seek earthly things that will perish but seek the true treasures that will last and give fulfillment
and the Lord will answer you in your times of need. Seek the Lord on your knees and pray. Worship Him in truth and in spirit.

Got it all figured out?

OK so I sit here eating some yummy frosted flakes, looking at a blank word box wondering what thoughts I should through your way today. Then all a sudden "Bamb!!!!" I know what I must say....

"Got it All Figured Out"
Confused? Me too, just kidding.

OK on with my thought....

Humans are pretty intelligent don't you think?
We understand how storms are created. We map solar systems and transplant hearts. We measure the depths of the oceans and send signals to distant planets. We... have studied the system and are learning how it works.

And, for some, the loss of mystery has led to the loss of majesty.

The more we know, the less we believe. (really think about that)

Strange, don't you think? Knowledge of the workings shouldn't negate wonder. Knowledge should stir wonder. Who has the more reason to worship than the astronomer who has seen the stars? Than the surgeon who has held a heart? than the oceanographer who has pondered the depths? The more we know, the more we should be amazed!

Ironically, the more we know, the less we worship..... We are more impressed with our discovery of the light switch than with the one who invented electricity.... Rather than worship the Creator, we worship the creation (Rom. 1:25).

No wonder there is no wonder. We've figured it all out.

Just a thought for the day.
See ya!!! :)

You are getting so good at this! I am amazed by the depth of your thoughts. Keep it up! (though it doesn't always have to be deep....take my blog for example...ha)

I love you!
