are always limited. They are flawed.
My thoughts, no matter how lofty, grand, or loving--they are never enough to meet the least of God's thoughts.
neither are your ways my ways,”
declares the Lord.
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts." Isaiah 55:8-9
Ultimately, even the most sacrificial thoughts I have still need God's purifying touch. The most descriptive word, the most profound phrase, the most knowledgeable statement I utter is nonsense in comparison to the wisdom of God. Each of my acts, no matter how kind, generous, or merciful, are far less than the perfection of God's. In this I know, it is God who seeks the best for others. It is God who reaches beyond the stars, above the universe, and whispers this earth into being. His word will never come back empty...void...without power. His thoughts will reign higher than the great beyond man seeks to explore. And for all this I am grateful to know that life is not up to me, struggles are not mine to fix, questions are not mine to answer, turmoil is not mine to still. In Christ I have my peace...in Him I rest. selahV
