Quack.. Quack

"The way we live is our witness, the rest is just religious
talk. "

Mmmkay, I dont know, this just sorta came to me when I was doing my
quiet time. ... read up.. enjoy. It might not mean as much
to you as it did me.


"All of us who are mature should take such a view of
things. And if on some point you think differently, that
too God will make clear to you. Only let us live up to what
we have already attained. "
Philipians 3:15-16

"Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me
to attain."
Psalm 139:6

Basically what those things are saying is that you should
be mature in your faith, yet at the same time don't worry
about what is to come because that is God's job. You can
only live up to what you have already accomplished.

Now, I know youve heard this verse before, I've heard it
before, but I thought about it in a deeper sense, like what
it really means:

"Your word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my
path. "
Psalm 119:105

See,Michelle Said : I picture that like its completely dark, pitch
way dark! The only light you see is like this bright, hmm,
one of those bright interrrogation type lights... and its
only shining on your feet. All you can see is this light on
where your feet are now. You can't see where you're going
because God doesn't want you to know that set. Such
knowledge is too wonderful for you, remember? When God
wants you to take the next step, He'll shine his light a
little further on your path. Think about this, if one year
ago, you knew where you would be now.. the things you have
now and didn't have then or don't have now but had then,
would you have followed God's path to get you there? Or
would you have taken a shorter route, or maybe tried a
different route to save you troubles?

"Even the darkness will not be dark to you, the night will
shine like the day for darkness is as light to you."
Psalm 139:12

See, its all about light to God. You and me, we're
small, all we can see is the small picture, whats giong on
now, all we can see is the light on our feet to show us
that where we are right now, is in a puddle of mud. And we
think of this as darkness because we see it isnt good to
us. But GOd? God is BIG! He is all knowing and ALL SEEING.
He can see the big picture, He knows that the puddle of mud
we're standing in right now... okay I think I lost where I
was going with the mud. But He knows that where we are
right now, as dark as it may be to us, our 'trials' but GOd
can also see what is yet to come, and the good that will
come out of this mud. He knows what the next step is even
though we don't.

"... All the days ordained for me were written in your book
before one of them came to be."
Psalm 139:16

"Don't worry about tomorrow for tomorrow will worry about
itself. Today has enough troubles of its own."
Matthew 6:34
