pondering shmondering

Ok, ok. I haven't posted in a little bit. But truthfully, something's been weighing on my heart, and when I say that, I mean it in a good way. I've been thinking, what's one of the things that blows my mind the most about God? Here it is:
His crazy crazy love. I think about all that is on this earth that God created, and how beautiful and mysterious some things are. So many elements of the earth intrigue me; things like Niagra Falls, the mountains, a sunset, the redwood trees, whale sharks, etc.

But...He is jealous for me. ME. I can't help but compare myself to everything that I listed above and see that there really is no comparison. We are dust.

But we are His desire.

He pursues us with no end just hoping that we will look at Him -- only if for a minute. Even if no one in this world will love or accept me, He will. And it breaks my heart that I turn from Him everyday when He is working 24/7 to do the opposite.

I don't really understand why He craves our love when I'm just an insect next to everything else created...but I guess I don't really have to. I'm just happy things are that way.

If anyone wants to tell me what blows their mind the most, I really wanna hear it.


  1. ps. - is it bad that i never give cred for the photos i post? you guys know i obviously didn't take this...

  2. its not bad, but you may want to find a way to include a sort of disclaimer, to be on the safe side.
    one thing that amazes me about god is his quiet presence. some of the most incredible personal moments ive had with him were just a quiet realization that HE was with ME, at that very moment.

  3. the presence of God that i feel in sunsets. i just posted a picture of todays actually :) each time i watch the sun go down i feel as though i am catching a glimps of the briliant light that surrounds His throne. i feel like he paints a picture just for me every day. ahhh! love it!

  4. God's loyalty always blows me away. I so often forget that I have the most powerful thing in the universe and beyond at my disposal yet forget, or decide not to use it. But.... those few times I DO decide to, my prayers are answered.
