The scripture for today, December 24, is Luke 12:24 as found in the New Testament of the Bible: “Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds!”
Ah, my God, I live in an era of airplanes and rockets, televisions and computers. They are mind-boggling how they work. Just how do people doing things together jump into a tiny wire, travel hundreds of miles, and pop up out of that wire as a picture on my TV screen? And to think you are so far above the most technical thing mankind has invented. I can only begin to grasp your power ~ a universe with two trillion galaxies. I cannot fathom just one galaxy. My mind becomes dizzy just in the trying. So, I give up and smile and know you are smiling too. Someday I will understand. Someday.
My Creator and Maker, you love me as your child. I look up to you in awe and try to follow in your footsteps and be like you. But your footsteps are so large. I flounder and often have to take many steps to your one and trip along the way. You just smile and take my hand. Someday I will face the journey you are leading me on. I have no fear of death, for there awaits me no punishment, only more exciting things and a sweet forever with you. Thank you.
