Because Life is a Wonderful Mystery

by | Feb 5, 2012 | Uncategorized

I assume to know how a person can awaken from slumber, turn off an alarm clock, fry an egg over flames, taste a warm cup of coffee, only to start over again the next day. What I don’t assume is that any of these things tell a man who he is.

Life is a mystery.

We are hidden in Christ.

May you see and taste and know a piece of the mystery today as you worship Him.

Praying on this Sabbath, that you will enter into His rest, enjoy some football, smile wide in the company of those you love.

Peace my friends.

    Life is a mystery – a beautiful and precious mystery that we so often take for granted. I’m trying hard to savor all God’s blessings, even those that don’t seem like blessings at the time 😉

    God is who defines a person, all people whether they accept Him or not. We are created in His image and the more we seek God the more we understand just who we are.

    Great message, thank you!

    Upon you as well this morning.

    I don’t have a problem looking at my children and remembering how wonderfully they are made. I do however forget that I am also made in His image. On those days when I feel I’m not enough this is a wonderful reminder that I am exactly how He made me…and He is well pleased.
    I hope you enjoy your day of football also! Stopping by from Sundays

    Isn’t it fascinating how some of us use the same verses? The Lord, speaking His words to us in ways unique to each of us. Awesome.
    Yes, my photo is our new grandson, three days old in the photo. What a delight! And, a reminder that each of us is created uniquely, the Lord’s thoughts toward us beyond comprehension. His works are wonderful.
    Love that font – kind of Greek looking.

    • Redemption's Beauty

      Yes, I notice sacred echoes among those that link up most Sundays.
      I look forward to having those precious grandkids some day, even though mine are barely teenagers.
      I know, I thought that font was cool too!

    Wow Angie your thougths just left me speechless – no – our everyday routines do not define who we are!

    What a lovely peaceful post. Wishing you a Sabbath rest as well. I’m enjoying blog hopping while hubby watches the game, visiting from Jumping Tandem.

    So grateful to be “hidden”.
