There is something about covered bridges that are sort of romantic, nostalgic and serene all at the same time. In our travels we have visited many covered bridges and I can't help but wonder how many folks have sought refuge under these bridges to be shielded from the elements that we are so subjected to in Michigan.
To think that just 2 days ago we were experiencing near 90 degree weather with bright sun and now today it is in the 40's and raining.
Only in Michigan can you get such a variety of weather in the blink of an eye.
Has any one ever read A.W. Tozer's books??? My small group Bible study is now reading "The knowledge of the Holy" we are examining the self-existence of God, I have never given this concept much thought, and have always just knew that God always existed I just never really delved into this concept that He has no origin. Origin is a word that can apply only to the things created. God is self-existent, while all created things necessarily originated somewhere at some time. Aside from God, nothing is self-caused. Awesome thinking isn't it?? God has created everything the exists today and has ever existed for all time. John 1:1-3. There is much more depth to this study than I can even begin to tell you about on this blog. But the bottom line is God is one day returning and we who are believers will be reunited in a place that will be so gorgeous our minds can not grasp at the wonder of it, just like we can not grasp at the oneness of the trinity.
"I am the Alpha and the Omega."
says the Lord God.
"Who is and who was and who
is to come, the Almighty"
I like this little poem from Frederick W. Faber
Timeless, spaceless, single, lonely
Yet sublimely Three
Thou art grandly, always, only
God in Unity!
Lone in grandeur, one in glory,
Who shall tell Thy wondrous story?
All of this to say God is so big, our minds are not able to comprehend the incomprehensible whole truth of Him. We just know He is there for us and has created us to worship Him.
