Not in charge of the Universe

March 15th, 2009 at 01:46 am

Our minister recently resigned and we are looking for a new one. In the meantime we are having a variety of services. This morning we had a DVD called Indescribable, with pictures from the Hubble space telescope. Awesome, and certainly puts my troubles in perspective. It's good to be reminded I don't have to worry about running the Universe, God is doing a fine job, so I can certainly put my trust in Him for my future.

I makes my little plans and dreams my little dreams, but who can tell what the morrow will bring? Even if I never get to be fully Financially Independent, it's still good to remember I have never been without food and clothes to wear. I'm not going to give up planning and dreaming, but I'm not going to obsess with worry over the future either. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereoff.

    I wonder if anyone ever just stares at the stars anymore just to awe.

    Very wise insights, indeed. And I loved your poem. Truly it is the relationships in our lives that are our greatest treasures.

    Here is a a great little quote I like to consider whenever I get the notion that the Universe isn't following my storyline:

    "What if you could be
    as happy as you can be

    and not be getting what you want?"

    Late last night I watched a program on TV about nature in the Kalahari. It focused on the animals. I'm not much of an animal appreciating person, but I went to bed amazed and happy. There is so much good and amazing out there that has nothing to do with me, or any other human beings.
