Random: without definite aim, reason, or pattern.
There is no rhyme or reason, aim or pattern, just words falling from my fingertips glossed over in prayer, prayers that you draw near to the God Who draws near to you and loves you no matter what church or state says. Words. Simple enough to be understood, strong enough to make a heart break, or make a heart blossom.
Life begins at the point where my comfort zone ends.
God’s greatest gift is unconditional love. God’s greatest promise is eternal Presence.
If I am unable to see God in the profane as much as I do in the profound, then I am missing half the story.
Worry is the activity of a mind (not heart) which does not believe or understand its’ connection to God.
Remember this every time you meet someone, especially someone you do not like or agree with: everyone has a past (everyone!); everyone has a story; and everyone is on a Journey. And at the end of the day, what I do not like about you is just a reflection back to me of what I do not like about myself.
God is present in all circumstances…all of them. There is divine purpose behind everything, all things, and therefore Divine Presence in everything. So as painful and hard as it is to grasp, all things and all circumstances stand with the will of God. It is hard to grasp that when looking at the pain of loss, death, violation, poverty, abuse and violence. But in truth, God has given us all the power, presence and perseverance we need to prevent and end these, but we have not employed these gifts to their higher purpose. Remember, there are no victims and there are no villains and in the end of all time, everything will be swallowed up in Love and Mercy.
Prayer is a conversation with God which leads to a friendship with God which in turn leads to deeper communion with God which ends in total union with God.
Still random. Still musing.
Here are three things I have surmised in my 47 years of life on earth:
- God rarely operates with my (or any person’s) frame of reference;
- God does not operate under any timetables, because God is infinite and eternal and time is a human construct to try and capture and quantify time and space, here and there.
- God operates in the place and space of ‘no time’ so every time is the perfect time, all time with God is Now.
That one hurt my brain.
And finally, God’s ways are not our ways; and, God is way more comfortable with chaos than we are, because we experience chaos as the subjects of it, and God experiences chaos as the Object of it. So, to think that God is going to do anything within the neat confines of finite flesh and blood, limited capabilities, understanding and comprehension, and do so within a scripted frame of reference using societal norms is simply preposterous, asinine and absurd.
Done for now.
P.S. Grace is Absurd.
