“No one laughs at God when their airplane starts to uncontrollably shake, no one’s laughing at God when the last sight they’ll ever see is a pair of hateful eyes… No ones laughing at God when they’re saying their goodbyes.”
Over the last few weeks I’ve thought long and hard about this question, it has been heavy on my heart. Why is it that so many deem God unnecessary in the world today? Perhaps because we are comfortable with life’s distractions and see no need for a Savior. Life’s distractions don’t foster deeper thinking, instead, I believe we have become so consumed with stuff, so much so that we don’t even think about the incredible intricacy of life itself, of our very existence. Am I just a spontaneous collection of nothingness built from nothingness and bound for nothingness? Every intricate cell in my body from my head to my toes tells a different story– pointing to the ONE who is Higher than I. We have come to accept the magnificence of every day life– “how beautiful and rare it is, to even exist.” It seems we have replaced this beauty, this complex, unfathomable beauty for normalcy. Replacing God with meaningless distractions and not even stopping to ask ourselves, “what on Earth am I doing here?” Perhaps this world just doesn’t care to know anymore. It’s as if every thing else has been placed first, and somehow we call this process of moving away from God… progress. Looking at our society today, progress is apparently a downward curve. The world is aching, let us not have to experience even more heartache before we finally realize the trajectory of our lives will only end in tragedy without God. My heart breaks at the turmoil within this nation. I pray that we as a nation will pull the wool from our eyes and realize that there is only One who can save this broken world, and His name is Jesus Christ and he reigns today, tomorrow and forever.
“The universe is a mighty big place. Encompassing all of the millions of stars in untold millions of galaxies, the universe extends for trillions and trillions of miles. The heavens declare the glory of God and show how much bigger our God is who set these stars in place. We cannot fathom the vastness of space nor can we fathom the love of God who sent his Son to die and pay the penalty for our sins.”
