Conception birthed our souls’ longings.
Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; before you were born I sanctified you… – Jeremiah 1:5
…the Creator told the prophet.
But this knowing is not only for a chosen few.
This knowing comes with believing.
And believing is the result of choice.
Entwined… encased… woven throughout the cosmos
is the Mystery of God.
And the Mystery of Why?
and for What Purpose?
Having placed within created ones this desire to know,
The Creator prods us to inquire and discover pieces of the Plan,
of life and what lies beyond.
He who is Spirit Immortal clothed Himself in skin, muscle, bone…
vessels, organs pumped with life.
And the Voice whispers:
I AM here,
and I can be found by you,
If you will only seek Me…
I want you to know Me,
as you are known by Me.
In watching and listening,
observe and wonder, trust and ponder.
Instilled within you is a craving to live, an aching to learn how to love,
but you’ll need to learn of Me.
I will be your Helper, Comforter, Teacher, Lover,
Friend, Father, Savior, God…
And I will give you Life…
the very Life I gave you a longing for.
Not all who observe Creation’s progeny choose to acknowledge the Designer…
just as not all who followed Jesus accepted His teachings—
some heard with ears deaf to the truth
and turned to walk their own way.
Humanity has not changed.
We still choose to trust our own faulty reasoning,
making ourselves gods,
Rather than trusting the One from Heaven, come down.
But for those following—
Himself revealed through constancy—
for the ones seeking,
not scorning, doubting, losing interest, growing weary,
He promises more…
to those who wonder,
never imagining what fulfillment looks like.
For since the beginning of the world men have not heard nor perceived by the ear, nor has the eye seen any God besides You, Who acts for the one who waits for Him. – Isaiah 64:4
Wisdom and Goodness,
Mercy and Truth,
Righteousness and Peace,
rest with One who desires Relationship…
and with those who leave the “Why’s” to Him,
who take the first step toward believing.
To be continued…
