Words of Healing “Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away” – Jesus (Matt 24:35).

I Stand in Awe

I sit here at work, looking at my hand writing, the pen that I use, and thinking about the mind that is organizing it into words. Life is a mystery, a wonder. I stand in awe of any existence at all. Not only do I marvel about "Where I come from," but of the reality of an Eternal God. The thought of my own existence, my "self-awareness," and the world in which I live and the beauty that it contains, and that, only a foreshadowing of what is to come, of what God has prepared.

I see why things such as Christian Science1 become religions, because the thought of existence is so mind boggling and incomprehensible that once you start really thinking about it, almost anything seems possible. I think of all the accomplishments that man has made, and yet it still cannot compete with the wonders of the Universe. The Universe, such vastness that we cannot even see all of it, nor can we even travel far beyond the safety of our own earth, which is insignificantly small in the vastness of the Universe. It is no surprise to me that some people would worship "Mother Nature," for nature is truly magnificent and wonderful.

But then, to set your mind on God, and His Eternal existence. He is "I AM THAT I AM, Who was, who is, and who is to come, THE ALMIGHTY!" To think of a "Being" that was never created, and created all that is, every dimension, quantum physics itself, and the thought is even more incomprehensible. To try to imagine how "big" God is, as if trying to count how many numbers infinity holds. Who can fathom infinity, when man can barely fathom billions and billions. Mankind has such a hard time understanding "billions" that Carl Sagan when speaking would constantly say "billions and billions," emphasizing it with his tone of voice so that people would realize that it's not the same as "millions" but rather is a "thousands of millions." Yet, even "millions" I find hard to fathom, for if I started counting to a million, it would take me years before I finished--I might die before I could finish counting.

It does not surprise me that people find it hard to believe in such a God that created all that is, because I can barely believe that I am standing here, and mankind has a tendency to fear what it cannot understand. Nature, even in all its wonders and mysteries, can be defined. However, how do you define an infinite, omnipresent, omnipotent, omniscient God, who with a word spoke the worlds into existence and measured the universe with "his hand" (Isa 40:12).

Even all that I have written sounds like mere jibberish as I Stand In Awe of the "I AM."


FootNotes

1) Christian Science, considered a cult by Christians, believes--to my understanding--that there is no physical world...that the physical world is a creation of our consciousness, and that by fully understanding this, you can release yourself from the trappings of the physical world.
