Meet Thea. All around energizer bunny. At least when I first met her she was. Marriage and motherhood have tempered her and smoothened her sharp edges. She is smart, witty and incredibly articulate. She is guest blogging for me this week. Let her know how much you appreciate her words.
If you pause to consider Him for a moment… He is God... His hand spans the breadth of the universe. So, in the grand scheme of creation, what about me touches His heart?? For that matter what is it about YOU?? The fact that He is so interested in His creation perplexes me and drives me to want to understand Him. He wants to reveal Himself…to me?? Whether you like Oprah or think she’s nuts, I bet if she invited you to lunch, you’d be curious enough to show up, wouldn’t you? I mean come on, it’s Oprah – why would she be interested in you!? Yet, we tend to casually view God's interest in us as some how deserved and, well, irrelevant.
I don't want to know God just because I NEED Him and believe me - I NEED HIM!!! Come over to my house mid-day: The pot pourri of diapers, unwashed hair, and toys strewn about the house will prove it to you! Other people's opinions of who He is don't satisfy my curiosity or my desire to know Him. I need to know for myself. It’s such a different perspective on what we are usually told…to read your Bible, pray every day and you’ll “grow, grow, grow” – great principle behind the song but – the song is about you, isn’t it?? I don’t want it to be about me…when it is...things get foggy. I am intrigued… why is the God of Heaven, Earth and everything beyond interested in me...really?
