Hi. I am so glad you found your way to my little corner on this massive web. Hope you are encouraged while you are here. I just started a new series called Wrapped in Grace talking about what God is like and therefore who we are. I have recently done series on Using Social Media to Glorify God, Heaven and creation showing us what God is like. And if you blog, come on by on Friday and link up a post for Faith Filled Friday.
Yesterday I couldn't get by without touching on my very favorite attribute of God, His eternalness. God has no beginning and no end. And as if Him always existing isn't mind blowing enough, that means everything about Him is also without end. If we studied and made a giant list of the attributes of God for the rest of our days on earth, we would never come to the end of all His attributes. Even if we added to our list of the attributes of God for all eternity, we would still never come to the end. Wow!
And then, say we take just one attribute, like His compassion, and we spend our entire life studying, learning, discovering all there was to know about His compassion, we would never know all there was to know about His compassion, just 1 of God's attributes. Even if we studied and discovered and learned about His compassion for all eternity, we'd never know all there is to know about God's compassion.
Do you feel small? I think that is God's point. For when we feel small and see God as big it makes way for Him show off through us.
God's vastness is overwhelming, but so exciting! That means that we will always have something amazing to learn. We will never run out of ah-ha moments (Something I think I may be addicted to. Is that bad?) There is a poem that I just love where part of it says it so well, "Just when I think I know your complexities, you step into the light." We need to be wow-ed off our feet to our knees. We need to be put in our place of how big, and awesome and incredible God is, and how we are the work of His hands. We are just not it, He is! And just because we will never know all there is to know about God, that doesn't mean He hasn't shown us somethings about Himself. And it sure doesn't mean we shouldn't pursue Him. For there is always more to learn!
