Infinite – limitless or endless in space, extent, or size; impossible to measure or calculate.
Finite – having limits or bounds; possible to measure or calculate.
We have been given many things to help us comprehend the infinite, the sands of the earth, the drops of water in the ocean, the insects in the world, the seeds of the forests, the leaves of the trees. These things we know are finite, and yet not being able to count them gives us a tiny glimpse of infinity.
Many still debate whether our universe is infinite or finite, but I think this too is finite, yet so immense and still expanding that it offers us another glimpse of the infinite within the finite.
Without these glimpses of infinity within the finite, how could we ever hope to think outside of our box or bubble and contemplate the INFINITE Glory, Love, and Mercy of our sweet Lord?
Psalm 147: 4-5
He determines the number of the stars and calls them each by name.
Great is our Lord and mighty in power; His understanding has no limit.
I was talking with my daughter about the beginning of the universe and gave her a very brief explanation of “The Big Bang Theory“.
After we finished talking she said, “I understand – it is just like a seed.” Hmm… I thought – I have never heard it compared to a seed, but I think she is right. I love this analogy!
Wouldn’t it be just like our sweet Lord to grow our whole universe from a tiny seed, next fill our world with seeds and the process of amazing things growing from seeds, then talk about seeds throughout the Bible and then patiently wait for a sweet little child to make the connection!!!
Our Lord is so AWESOME! I love the games of hide and seek and seek and find that He is ALWAYS playing with us!
We are becoming gardeners! Since moving into a house I have wanted to plant a garden. Unfortunately I am a dreamer with very little follow-up action, but thankfully my husband is the one who gets things done!
This summer he picked a spot in the yard and we started clearing out the ground cover. Within a few weeks we had a nice little spot cleared! I thought we would be ready to plant within the week so the girls and I headed out to buy some seeds, but wait a min my sweet husband is also very detail oriented and meticulous when it comes to projects! We were not yet ready to plant, we had to clear out all of the roots. While clearing the roots we came across some very large and deep cement bases from the old fence. I was willing to work around them, but my love said “No, they must come out.” so we began digging really deep! Four, fifty pound, cement bases later, our little plot had transformed into what looked like a miniature disaster zone with deep holes, dirt piles and lots of roots.
We are now about 2 months into the project. Today I was out there filling in the holes, clearing roots, leveling the earth, and thinking. I was wondering if my soul is being cleared out as I clear out this land? I was thinking about my own roots that run deep, my own cement blocks that weigh me down and keep me from producing any fruit, I was thinking about the over growth within my life that distracts me from our sweet Jesus, and finally I was thinking of my husband and the beautiful life he lives.
Thank You Jesus for blessing me with my sweet and wonderful husband who understands Your ways and practices them. I read Your Book, but he listens to You with his heart and acts on it. He knows the land must be properly prepared in order to be fruitful, he knows that things must be destroyed to be rebuilt and he is patient!
I pray to continue seeing him with Your eyes of love so that I can continue to learn from his wonderful example!
