Very Small

Space, Universe, Science Fiction

There are people who try to make others feel small, by boasting about their own self importance. They list their accomplishments, accolades and wealth. They display their fortunes in the shape of designer clothes, luxury jewellery and flashy cars. They like to be worshipped for being the best of the best. They want to be followed and fawned over. They take exception to any criticism and like to blame anyone but themselves.

I don’t think about people like that.

I do find myself thinking about a person who is immensely powerful beyond all comprehension, yet chooses to stoop down to listen to my silent whispering. His colossal glory staggering beyond belief, yet He only uses it to remind me that I don’t need to be afraid and that I can trust Him. He tells me to look at the stars, not to be intimidated, but to be filled with confidence when He assures me to hold His hand and He will never let go. He gives freely despite many ignoring Him. He has been criticised and slandered and has graciously endured, allowing time for accusations to be settled.

I think about what it will mean to Him to see His creation finally at peace, thriving in security and joy. He has waited for so long for this legal challenge to be answered. Soon our Father will embrace all creation and we will live without anymore fear.

I love to think about Him.

I feel very small…but in a good way…my Father is the magnificent sovereign of all the universe. He said he would allow humans to rule themselves for a limited time to answer the question of who should care for mankind, animalkind and this planet. He is near, His grand purpose is unfolding. He is coming quickly. The best of human history is ahead.

  1. As a seeker of peace in all my actions and thoughts I have come to wonder if there will ever be the peace you hope for as long as people have free will. If, faced with the Divine, the Great Spirit, God in all its magnificence people can choose an alternative path is there hope beyond the hope you and I hold in our hearts? People always seem to make the choice that you and I are baffled by don’t you think?
    Thank you, you’ve made me think. There’s another post in here somewhere I’m sure.

    1. That’s a very thought provoking question.
      I guess it is a question of whether there can be true peace at the same time as there is wickedness.
      And does free will mean no accountability for our own decisions? Or do we face a point where we learn and change or face removal of the privileges gifts we have been given…the most significant of which is of course life itself.
      These are not easy questions, as shown by human judicial systems grappling with what to call right and wrong. I think it is humbling to realize that for all that humans may feel they have achieved via education and enlightenment, they are in more of a muddle than ever.
