Where is God?

Our thoughts are many and they are frequent.  We engage in various types of thinking throughout the day.

Thoughts of the morning rush:  How am I going to pay this creditor today? Can my child not get out of bed on time at least one day this year? I wonder if my boss will approve of my presentation. I really need the promotion and the raise to go with it. I hope no one else takes credit for my work today. 

Thoughts of the midday: I must leave work by 5pm to get the kids from daycare and not be charged for extra time. Wait, what are we having for dinner tonight? I don't think I can keep up this diet any longer. I wish she would stop bombarding us with her jewelry catalogs at lunch every day. How can I advance at work and get my boss to notice me? Maybe I'll stay late tonight and really put forth an effort. 

Thoughts of the evening: Figured out dinner, now I need to get all the lunches ready for tomorrow. Maybe I'll just give the kids money and they can buy their lunch. This house is a mess. I need to go to bed. Oh that's right, we promised each other we would spend time watching one of our favorite movies tonight. I hope work goes better tomorrow -- I'm just sick over the whole thing.

In the midst of our day, we will likely at some point feel pressure, uncertainty, stress, worry, or on the flip-side we may be fully enjoying all that life seems to be offering us right now without a care in the world. Whatever your circumstances might be at the present -- Where is God?  Do you intentionally make Him part of your thoughts and by extension, part of your life? After all--


It is He who made the earth by His power,
Who established the world by His wisdom;
And by His understanding He has stretched out the heavens.
Jeremiah 10:12
Rest assured -- intentionally focusing on Who God Is in the midst of your day will be life changing!

Tired of the TO DO Lists?

The Great Grind: If you're anything like me, your life is filled to overflowing with the necessities and then some!  I'm sure you have a life filled with the daily grind of shopping, cooking, cleaning, working, going to the Doctor, going to the bank, running to the pharmacy, taking care of the sick pet, thinking of meals for the upcoming week, taking care of the children, and if you home school your children - lesson planning, grading, teaching, gathering material and then there's paying the bills, cutting coupons to save money, and oh yes, the beloved laundry!  And the defining moment when you realize you do not have any clean underwear for the next morning...ugh.

Part 2 ~ Miracles: Impossible?

And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall name Him Jesus.  Luke 1:31 Miracles: Impossible? Remembering David Hume's definition of a miracle from the last post: "[a] violation of the laws of nature; and because firm and unalterable experience has established these laws, the case against a miracle is--just because it is a miracle--as complete as any argument from experience can possibly be imagined to be." 1 If we take a look at Hume's definition of miracle, at first glance, it would seem as if he is declaring miracles to be an impossibility because they cannot violate the laws of nature. Is this really what Hume is attempting to argue? Hume taught "that what we call the laws of nature are simply an account of what has happened up to the present plus a belief that the future will continue to be like the past."2 According to Hume, we observe what has happened and we believe, or shall we say, take a step of faith to believe that wha…

Close Calls

For what great nation is there that has a god so near to it as is the Lord our God whenever we call on Him? Deuteronomy 4:7
Sound of the fury or two terriers. There was a time when we had two terriers who were not always fond of each other. Though they were small, they were feisty. I was walking through the kitchen one day when the one terrier upon seeing the other, decided that this was her time to shine and leave her mark. The pearly whites of her teeth began to gleam as she lifted her lip in utter disdain and latched on to her "companion" and would not let go. The usual verbal threats masked in the growling and snarling were not part of this fight; however, the sheer determination to defeat the opponent and win were certain. To say that I was concerned was an understatement. After quite a while of trying to pry the dogs apart and loosen the clenched teeth without success, I finally blurted out, "Jesus, help us!" It was at this exact moment that the one dog release…
