God of Wonders
In my prayers the other night, the thought occurred to me that perhaps the reason why the universe is so immense is to give us something to be comfortable with that we are not able to comprehend. I believe the only way we would be comfortable with a God so enormous that we cannot understand all of Him is to have experienced being ok with our inability to fully comprehend something else with which we are comfortable. With space, we are drawn to it; we want to know it more. We don’t deny the existence of the parts we haven’t explored. We’re ok feeling small and ignorant in comparison with the richness and depth of it all. Maybe that is why I’m ok feeling small and ignorant in comparison with the depth and richness of God.
