A Nugget From My Spiritual Journey...March 2016


Many reminders have come my way lately of how great and infinitely loving, caring and dependable God is!

…Through a new look at long-familiar Scripture passages:

In a new Bible study, SEAMLESS, by Angie Smith (which I highly recommend) we are reminded of how God established the nation of Israel and the lineage and redemptive life of Christ. We see a God of details, dependable promise-keeping character, absolute holiness, and infinite and consistent love (which sometimes requires, yes, judgment). 

…Through, believe it or not, posts on social media:

Oddly, the absolute beauty and precision of Creation show up daily on social media posts. Astounding photos from the plant and animal kingdoms and from the vast variety of topography across the planet are mind-boggling. The mathematical beauty and explosion of creativity shown are in-your-face reminders of the matchless awesomeness of the Creator and of His infinite care in sustaining every single molecule of it! Just today, even a post about a mathematical chart made my mind immediately race to the amazing precision of God!

…Through the world around me:

I can’t look out the window or walk out the door without seeing the God of all of Creation. I am thankful for parents who taught me to do that. The beautiful Oklahoma sunsets we have…the constant changes in weather…the differences we see as we travel…all “yell” God!

…Through the current political scenarios that consume our TV airways every day:

There is much to remind us, in both the Old and New Testaments, that God allows and uses governments and rulers—even evil ones. But, the righteous are not without hope. Read Psalm 37 and find contrasts between the righteous and the wicked.

 …Through the “peace that passes all understanding,” by trusting the God of all, Who is in ME. The God of those Old Testament people is MY God. The God of the early believers in the New Testament is MY God. They were not super-saints with exclusive rights. They were sinners, saved by grace, just like ME. Believers in the Bible and ME…we are ALL redeemed by the same faithful, consistent, almighty, miraculous, loving God and He uses us all. (Hebrews 13:8)
