God is the Great Rubik’s Cube Solver

I have never really gotten these Rubik’s cube things. I have played with several over the years, but never got around to solving one. I always saw people moving them so fast, and they must know some trick, because I really had to plan ahead and make calculated moves, like it was chess and I couldn’t go back if I regretted a move I made. I went slow, trying to see the end of the game, when each side would only have one color. 

This is the Lord. He is the best at solving Rubik’s Cubes.  Continue reading God is the Great Rubik’s Cube Solver

When I was growing up, there must’ve been some sort of national initiative for science programs for younger students, because everyone I knew had to do a Science Fair project 4th and 5th grade. For 5th grade, you had to do a circuits project, so I did something with dog breeds. But the real fun was actually with the soldering iron. Continue reading God is the Great Soldering Iron Wielder

God is the Great Igneous Rock Maker

My father almost became a geologist, so clearly I have a lot of expertise to be writing on this topic. I practically hold the degree. There’s two types of rock, at the end of the day. 

Sedimentary rock is almost always derivative of other rocks. Igneous rocks like granite are broken down into small pieces, transported downstream to the sea, where they form sediment beds and then under immense pressure from all that weight, it turns into rock. These sedimentary rocks are made out of particles of other rocks – so they are a patchwork of other identities. 

The other type of rock is igneous, made from a volcanic eruption, lava spewing and spilling out, and cooling to become rock. Igneous rock forms from molten rock, so picture a 1500-2000F degree, sudden, violent explosion…. it’s a fiery way to be born.  Continue reading God is the Great Igneous Rock Maker 

hope is not in the “seems” of life

 

The saying is that hindsight is 20/20. I wish my present point of view was similarly clear.

I have walked with Him just long enough now to know He is doing something.

He is good, His plan is the best, His ways are perfect, and I need to trust Him, even when I fall to my knees and cry out, Lord, why?

The Lord is hilarious sometimes.
