Reflection - Creation and purpose

I believe in God. I believe He created the world and everything in it. He could have done it in 6 days or He could have done it through the process of evolution. It doesn't matter. Still - He did it. He took nothing - and He created everything I know.


I believe that he created me out of love - to KNOW Him, LOVE Him and SERVE Him in this world and to be happy with Him in the next. (Baltimore Catechism)  He has a purpose for my life and no one can fill it but me. It is not necessary for me to know what that purpose is. If I seek Him with a sincere heart, He will accomplish all that He intends to accomplish through me.


I believe it is better that I do not understand His way. If I know what it is that He wants me to accomplish, in my eagerness to please Him, I will rush in and do things MY way and on MY time table!


"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways," declares the Lord. "As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts."

(Isaiah 55:8-9)


Yes, I am a child of the Most High God! I will stay close to Him and He will accomplish His purpose in Me though I know nothing of what He is doing! And that is okay with me - because life isn't really about me - it's all about Him!
