Soap Bubble

“The knowledge of nature is the way to admire the greatness of the Creator. … Everything that the most prolific imagination and highest intelligence can think out seems, when compared with reality, but a colourful, shiny soap bubble.”

(Justus von Liebig, chemist)

Self Image

“The opposite of self consciousness is not a “good” self image or self esteem. The opposite of conscious is unconscious. To lose consciousness of one’s self happens when we become more conscious or aware of God and His will than we are of self and its will. This is a work of the Spirit, accomplished progressively as we renounce our natural limitations and abandon our selves to Him” (Lisa Revere)

Sandpaper

“God always puts us around someone who is like sandpaper to smooth off our rough edges…a testing that takes place before we get promoted. If you want to lead, you must first serve in circumstances that may not be ideal and learn to behave wisely. This prepares us to be greatly used by God.” Joyce Meyer.

When I am at the beach, I enjoy collecting little pieces of driftwood, especially if they have some resemblance to an animal or a bird. This one reminded me of a crested bird.

I dried it out and used sandpaper to smooth it. That just brought out the beauty of the wood.

My Prayer

Lord God, You know exactly where my character needs work. Please help me to work with You and not against you when You use sandpaper to smooth me. Amen.

God’s Requirements

“And what does the Lord require of you except to be just, and to love [and to diligently practice] kindness (compassion) and to walk humbly with your God [setting aside any overblown sense of importance or self-righteousness]?” (Micah 6:8 AMP)

Sea Sick

The boat, in which Hudson Taylor was sailing to China, encountered a terrific storm. He wrestled with the question of whether wearing a lifebelt, according to the Captain’s instructions, showed a lack of faith in God.

Finally he penned the following, “The use of means ought not to lessen our faith in God, and our faith in God ought not to hinder our using whatever means he has given us for the accomplishment of his own purposes.”
