Here is a non-fiction piece I wrote. I typically just write poetry on this blog but I am trying expand my horizons. I hope you enjoy this and I welcome any comments or feedback. 🙂
Lord, I love You. You are the Creator of Everything. Everyone knows You created the birds and the bees. But what about the sonic sounds in the air or the ultraviolet light? I am forever mesmerized and captured by Your infinite mind and grace.
Everyone knows there are 7 billion people on the planet, but did you know there are more who ever existed than are on the Earth now? Science estimates that 107 people who ever lived. There are 15 dead people for every living person. (Credit: http://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-16870579.) Wow! The Bible says in Ephesians 1:4-6, “Even as He chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before Him. In love He predestined us for adoption to Himself as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of His will, to the praise of His glorious grace, with which He has blessed us in the Beloved.” (ESV).
We can give Him our love, because He understands us. I believe He is a good God. Supposedly, an evil supreme being could create so many people for their own glory! This wretched creator wants them to worship him only! While God does intend for us to worship Him to glorify Him, He keeps our best interests at heart. On the other hand, an evil creator would want worship and not care about the details of our lives like our Lord Jesus does. There are tons of relationships in the world that are based on vanity and selfishness. People who care too much about their reputation and not the other person’s feelings. God is a wise God. And wisdom includes maturity. While humans are still learning how to be sincere to others through honesty, openness, setting boundaries, etc. It takes time, energy, and patient. God has endless supply of those qualities! We are frail human beings, continuously growing. But we serve a compassionate, slow to anger Father!
Give Him the glory today!
Let’s say this prayer together:
Dear Lord, I love You. Thank You for sending Your Son, Jesus to die on the cross for our sins. Please help to remind me that everything You do is for our good in mind. I want to love You more and give You everything. It’s by surrendering everything to You that I am completely alive. I love You, Lord and thanks again for all things. 🙂
