"Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting." Psalm 139:23-24
Life is totally complicated.
Last night, I went, with a few friends, to 7:22, (Andy Stanley's church in Alpharetta, GA). Stuart Hall spoke and did an awesome job. He was in the middle of a three-part series called "All Most God" about God's infiniteness. He did an incredible job. He used a beautiful parallel of a cardboard box, and how that represents are skewed and small frame of reference, and contrasted that to the infiniteness that is God Almighty. "He sits enthroned above the circle of the earth, and it's people are like grasshoppers. He stretches out the heavens like a canopy, and spreads them out like a tent to live in." (Isa 40:22) ""To whom will you compare me? Or who is my equal?" says the Holy One." (Isa 40:25)
With that said... I've struggled in recent months about trying to really grasp the magnitude of who God is, and how big He is. But, it remains that He.Just.Is. And my trying to grasp it is futile, I just have to trust.
I am totally struggling with stuff these days too... prayer,... friends acting stupid,... personal junk... Hawaii... but I keep coming back to what God's already done in my life, and how cool that is. And my faith gets a jolt. My heart gets more excited. I can't change my friends, I can't prevent storms, but I'm trying to have a good attitude in it all.
I guess that makes my "unofficial" Works for me Wednesday is Jesus. Jesus works for me.
