A post I wrote a couple days ago.
Today, being Friday (the day that I wrote this), I went through the Starbucks drive thru to get a frappaccino. There's nothing extraordinary about that, but while I was sitting in line for the pay window, I heard in the tree above me, the most crisp, cheery, and lovely sound. It was a series of twitters, ranging from shrills, titters, and tweets, to loud whistles.
I looked up and saw a mockingbird.
It was the first mockingbird I've seen this Spring, actually.
I know that mockingbirds are among the more aggressive breed of birds, but I have personally always loved them. I always found it amazing that one bird could 'copy' so many others in the song it makes. Its little whistles can make all sorts of sounds, at all different volumes.
I was thinking about this on the way to work whilst sipping my coffee, and I began to think about all the people in the world who don't believe there is a God at all.
It made me sad that some could suppose that such an intricately designed bird could have no Maker. That all of this (meaning the whole world) just randomly happened.
I am not a genius. I am not above-average in intelligence, nor do I even have a college education.
But I, even I, can't imagine all of this -mockingbirds included- without a Designer. I can't imagine things not having a beginning from an intelligent Being Who put it all into place.
Actually, it is to our benefit that we believe in a God who made all things. For He made us, and that means He cares about us!
// 1 Peter 5:7 //
"... casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you."
I don't know about you, but I want a piece of That.
God loves the world. Whether they believe in Him or not.
I would rather there be a God who made everything and cares about me, than refuse to believe in Him at all.
It's something I've decided to put my trust in, and I don't think I'll be disappointed.
