new post

So, when i hit the NEW POST button, I had no idea what I was going to write about.
I still don't know.

*pauses for a few minutes, thinking*

Usually when I don't know what to write about, it's because there are so many options. And it's easy to default to writing something to the effect of how good God is. I don't think this is a bad thing.

I love creativity. I love how every single person in the world right now is unique and different than everyone else in so many ways. I love that God designed it that way. He made us creative because he is creative and we are made in his image. Ok, seriously. We are made in the image of the creator of this whole universe!? We are pretty special and he thinks so, even when we are told otherwise or don't believe it ourselves. I'm not trying to build you up here, thinking you are all great because of something you have done. No, You are great because of who he is, and the detail he put into creating you exactly how you are.

I also love that there is so much mystery in the world, all around us. We are so oblivious. God isn't.
The detail in a dragonfly's design. The tiny strands of thread that make up a piece of clothing. The invisible waves of sound. The human body alone is such an incredible illustration of his attention to detail, not to mention every animal, plant, and the perfect way the solar system is set up!

I have been learning lately how to enjoy things just for the sake of enjoying them, because God made them. I'm trying to just be and not worry about things I don't have any control over. I want Jesus to be my everything, and I know he is enough. The fact that he sees all of my flaws and still loves me is pretty amazing and a good enough reason in itself to be wholly his! I believe he loves the little quirky things in all of us. He put them there. Like the fact that i'm collecting peach pits? How about an over-obession with old things? Or a secret admiration for cowboys? It's things like these (but not these, because i just told you…(haha) that only God knows, and only he needs to know. I'm realizing that he is enough, and it's so freeing- he is my savior and my deliverer.

Look for detail today. And enjoy his creation. Oh, also- be quirky :)

thanks for reading.

    I thought i was the only one who secretly admired cowboys. I am convinced that my grandpa was a cowboy. Which is why he was so fantastic.
    I love the way you write, and i love this song.
