God, I thought I understood You

I’ve been a Christian for a few decades now, and you’d think I’d know everything there is to know about the partner on the other side of this relationship. I have His letter (the Bible), his daily guidance, not to mention tons and tons of patience He’s had with me because sometimes I do stupid stuff like this:

And yet while I’m reading a book in the Bible called Hebrews, along with another book by William Barclay that explains the historical background from that time, I’m astounded by the level of detail and depth of love and concern God has for people.

So a quick illustration that might help with what I’m trying to say. Have you been to Disney World lately? Actually, that’s not a fair question since Mickey’s home is closed for the foreseeable future… but if you’ve ever been there (and I’m assuming the other Disney theme parks are like this, too), you might have noticed the extreme attention to detail all around the park. Even in the resorts on site, you might possibly think at the end of your vacation, “Golly gee, they thought of EVERYthing.” I believe there is a reason and a design behind even the smallest part of the park, like bear claw marks on the floor of the Country Bear Jamboree, for example. Subtle tributes to Disney’s past can be seen all around the park, as well. Here’s a list of a 21 things you may have missed at Disney.

That’s how reading through Hebrews is blowing my mind right now. God really did think of EVERYthing! It’s pretty wild so far and I’m only in the first couple of chapters of one book in a big Bible. It’s truly fascinating.

  1. I’m almost twice your age and still don’t understand God, but it is fun doing the research!
