Can you try to comprehend His infinite knowledge in knowing and understanding each and every person on this entire earth?
In creating each one with a different heritage, a different back-story, a different personality, a different fingerprint?
In keeping track each moment of their every thought, of how each story intertwines with the others, the consequences of each small action, and bringing all these millions upon millions of stories together into an ending that has already been written?
But isn't He amazing?

So... yesterday I'm sitting at my desk, catching up on the world after being without internet for four days (minus Sunday, which day I happened to be packing and moving, and the two hours I was on-line on Tuesday - I walked a mile for wi-fi that day).
Finally just beginning to feel re-connected, when I am invited to go for a walk.
Ok, so it might be interesting to explore the neighborhood.
I need the exercise.
But I have e-mails to answer, blogs to catch up on, physics to read...
Well, fine, thirty minutes, max.
Off we go.
Down the sidewalk, past the houses...
I hate walking in town, but this isn't too terrible.
My little brother manages to lose himself before we've gone a block, but before we've gone four he has caught up to us, red-faced and panting...
Cross a busy intersection.
The sprinkling rain turns into almost-rain-drops and then dies away again...
Cross another busy intersection.
There's a path up ahead, winding down beneath overhanging trees.
it's a little bit of paradise, hidden between the houses and roads
it's a wilderness inside the town...
it's so beautiful it almost hurts
To think I nearly missed seeing it because I wanted to be on my computer!
We ended up walking for about an hour, and I was kicking myself for not bringing a camera. (I'm going back, don't worry!)
Thinking about it tonight, I realized something.
I'm sitting here, perfectly contented with my life, quite busy, quite happy, and I don't need to be bothered, thanks.
But God is saying "Come walk with Me. I want to show you something."
And I put it off, find more reasons why I really don't need to, and even though I know there could be a few benefits... why bother?
I have no idea what I'm missing. All He wants is for me to give Him my life, all of it. To follow Him to the end of the earth and back. It will be like nothing I've ever seen. It will be a journey filled with such incredible wonder, glory, majesty, and beauty that I cannot imagine it. It will be to walk side by side with my Creator, my Savior, my Lover, my Lord - to serve Him and know Him and love Him.
What is holding me back from this?
Seeking Him in wonder,
