Job 9:9-19 Good News Translation (GNT)
9 God hung the stars in the sky—the Dipper,
Orion, the Pleiades, and the stars of the south.
10 We cannot understand the great things he does,
and to his miracles there is no end.
God created from the very beginning of time. In Genesis, he took the time to create and change the world. He saw that darkness wasn't good and he created light. Through generations of time, people have tried to figure out things and make things better. History is set into motion for a purpose. We can look back to see how far we have come.
I was talking to my son the other night about telephones. When I was a kid, we had a daily telephone. You put your finger in the hole and turned the daily around for what number you wanted. I was so excited when the push button phone came out. Wow, you now only need to push a button for a number. Skipping forward to the year 2016 and there are phones we carry in our hands where we go. We need only to speak into it and call someone by name. No cords, no daily and it travels wherever we go. What I am trying to say, in generations past it was different and there is always room for improvement.
God has always been like the improved cell phone. Only one call away, no cords, no limits and you only need to speak his name. Wow, such a major connections forever and he travels with you.
My soul cries out for more of God
I know that God hung the stars in the sky and I know the he created me. My purpose has changed over the years and yet the deep down desire remains the same. I've been through a lot of things in life and I've seen my own life grow. I look back to the year 2004 and the vacation that changed my life. I said yes to God and knew that I had another chance to do my best to lead others. In the waters of Cabo, I believe that God baptized my soul.
I knew that God had called me to teach women, but I was scared inside. I had been spoken harshly too and those words replied. Yet, I knew that God called me and he restores lives. I had a choice to cast off those words and press forward. My choice became one of teaching and writing. I found that writing was a outlet of everything I knew and my soul feels refreshed daily. It's not only for me, but those who read my blog.
Through generations, people have stopped going to church because of several reasons. One most popular is one of getting hurt, another is not wanting to go alone or another is not wanting to be judged. If we could only remember that the ONE reason we go to church is for God. It is for Jesus who died for each of us and wants us to know how love in a greater way.
This God I am talking bout saves us from ourselves. He sets things into motion and he created you for a greater purpose. Just like the stars in the sky or the sun that comes up on a new day. Everything falls into place, but daily things change. We need our soul on a solid foundation of God. Reading his word, planting hope, sharing life with others and continuing to allow God to use our lives. Just one smile goes a long way, a text message of hope and connecting on new levels. Just as the new day arises, so does new beginnings.
