"For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways, declares the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts." Isa 55:8,9On another, yet related, note, I am always struggling with a lack of commitment in my time with God. Our pastor said a few things yesterday that struck me...
"When our lives are designed for comfort, they no longer bear the name of The Designer."
"When we take our eyes off Jesus and concentrate on our circumstances, we begin to drown." (speaking from the text where Peter walks on water out to Jesus)
The one that struck me the hardest was a quote that he borrowed from Dale Bruner: "Human extremity is the frequent meeting place with God."
So, I don't know why my life has taken a few detours, I may never know. What I do know, is that my "human extremity" has forced me to engage in quite a few conversations with my God and Creator, and that is enough.
