"You must love all that God has created, both His entire world and each tiny little sand grain of it, then your mind will open itself to an all embracing love." Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Waiting On A Mirical

God is in the business of making miracles happen every moment of the day.  We live in a nation where people don't really think they need God... people are pretty self sufficient... yea we all have bad day's and mishaps, but really... for those who've got a job, a family, a decent vehicle and the basic necessities of life, you're OK... right?

What about those who live in third world nations... those areas that are war torn... famine and sickness surrounds these people... some of them have the opportunity through missionaries to come to know the Lord, while others linger around idol's never knowing the one true God.

We as a 'civilized' culture, and I say that loosely, can pretty much take care of ourselves.  Yes there are those who have experienced the natural disasters of floods, tornado's and such, but overall we've got it pretty good.  There are grocery stores and what ever you want stores on every corner... not so much where we live in the country... but you get the point. 

When do we as a nation get to the point where we realize that we do need God?  That He is control of everything... even our trivial little lives?  We are so little in the big scheme of things... yet we think we are so very important.  It reminds me of the Titanic... the proud captain said that even God Himself couldn't sink that ship... well we all know what happened.  I don't think God is cruel for allowing that to happen... but His Word is true and 'pride does go before destruction'...

Let us truly look on our self and realize that life is but a breath and at any given moment we can simply be gone as a vapor... as the wise Ecclesiastes writer wrote... 'life is all vanity'...

Until next time,
