I don't know how to articulate it much.....I seek them with this song in my heart at all times....(one of my favorites)....

I realize that no one asked me but....

You simply can't ponder how it all works until it all makes sense.
You have to acknowledge the fact that you believe....
because His ways are above our ways.
It's simply impossible to understand it all -- first.

It takes faith... and making a choice.

Kind of like when you meet someone and feel drawn to them. You choose to get to know them more. You choose to give them your time.
You choose to spend time getting to know them. It's impossible to know everything about someone and thoroughly understand them before you decide to have a relationship with them. That takes time and trust.

But, the first thing you have to do to have a relationship is to decide that's what you want to do...

It really is a love relationship.

We can draw near to Him when we worship Him....

This is one of my favorite worship leaders and some of my favorite songs.

Worship and praise can bring you into the very presence of God...

Take gentle care, June 7th.

God bless you!

True. The geese themselves are not a good representation of the One who created them...

but, watching the migratory patterns of geese and the beauty of the seasons gives us some idea of His mind, His power, His ability to sustain us....
More importantly, we can see clearly that the things He puts into motion don't change... they continue in the pattern He designed forever....
until He calls them home.

He is the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end.

God never changes.
