Another thought for the day…

1 Thessalonians 5:16-24 

Always be joyful. Never stop praying. Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus. 

Do not stifle the Holy Spirit. Do not scoff at prophecies, but test everything that is said. 

Hold on to what is good. Stay away from every kind of evil. 

Now may the God of peace make you holy in every way, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless until our Lord Jesus Christ comes again. 

God will make this happen, for he who calls you is faithful.

Invictus

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

William Ernest Henley

Chaos Monster and Sun God

In my last three posts (plus an earlier post) I have looked at ways that we may see that biological evolution points to God as the creator, perhaps in ways that many would find unexpected.

Purpose for everything

It’s often said that there is a purpose for everything. It’s so very difficult to find a purpose in my present situation – but each time I lose faith,  I have to look around myself…..my family, my wife, my children, my friends – old, new, some ‘lost’ and some recently reacquainted….

There has to be a loving God and a purpose.

Prov 16:1-Prov 16:3 NASB The plans of the heart belong to man, But the answer of the tongue is from the Lord. All the ways of a man are clean in his own sight, But the Lord weighs the motives. Commit your works to the Lord And your plans will be established
