I am so excited to introduce my first guest blogger. His name is T.J. Brand and he is going to go far and do great things. I really believe that. He has a deep, deep soul and I am thankful to God that He has given the opportunity to become his friend.
Enough of me.
People have been on a constant question be close to God since the beginning. Almost every culture to ever grace this planet with its presence has tried in one way or another to understand why He does what He does.
People who have felt loss feel this need more strongly.
Maybe that is why, as human beings, we explore. We want to set foot in places that have never before been visited in an effort to touch God and see wonders of His creation that have not yet been seen.
I am reminded of George Mallory. Mallory was possibly the first man to have reached the summit of Mt. Everest. I say possibly due to the fact that it is not certain he ever made it. There is evidence and opinion supporting both sides of the argument.
That, however,is not my point.
This man gave the better part of his life to conquering the greatest peaks on the planet. Why? It wasn’t in appreciation of God’s works; he didn’t believe in God.
It seems to be in a quest for clarity.
What does it all mean?
What is with all the injustice?
And what in the world is so interesting about the Kardashians?
I am going to throw a passage from the Bible at you that you have probably read a hundred times. I, however, make it a point to read it every morning.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your way acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.
It helps me to remember a lesson it was hard for me to learn: trust in Him no matter the circumstances.
There’s a lot we will never understand.
I’m sure you’ve heard this before.
And I’m not saying this to make you feel small and out of control.
We all have a choice. I’m saying this to the people that have made the choice to follow God. This is to encourage you. I for one feel more secure knowing that there is someone much smarter than me guiding me day to day.
