HE Sees and Knows

So, our phone and internet have been restored.

Want to try an interesting experiment? Take away your children's access to the phone and internet for five days and see how they respond.
Elizabeth made a great PowerPoint presentation about boredom. And I think she read three books.
Matthew has been busy with his legos.
Joshua has been roller blading.
And they all discovered how to de-face pictures using the paint program on the computer. Charming. *wink*

At any rate, things are back to normal here and I expect to be posting regularly again. It tickles me to consider the fact that God knew all this was going to happen before any of it occurred. And HE sees all the stuff in your life, too!

This reminds me so much of a statement that I made yesterday during our Life Groups class. We are studying Beth Moore's 'Here and Now, There and Then", which is the about the Revelation.

She asked what about the study up to yesterday had boggled our mind. My answer was that God told us so much in The Revelation, yet He withheld so much. He only tells us what He knows we need to know. This is true in the Bible and in life.

This does bring me great comfort, as I tend to be a worrier!! The more I trust Him, the more I realize that worrying we get me nowhere lol!!

And about the "seeing what we can't"...the other day my daughter asked me: "Can Jesus see our bones?" and her question reminded me of this very verse in Psalm 139!

Great to "see" you back here, Karen!!

Leah - Yeah. We're pretty much on a need-to-know basis, aren't we? Though there are times I'd like to know more, I think it's a good thing I don't. HE reveals what I need - and that's good enough for me!

Patricia - I have learned that we don't need to worry about anything. We only need to TRUST. Not always so easy to do - but the more I trust and the less I worry, the better I feel about everything!

Larie - Yep. She's a creative one. *wink*

Thanks as always Karen for inspiration. "God knows" just what I need to hear today. Today is transfer day. You bet I'm worried and wondering! It is a great comfort to know God knows what will happen and that it will be his perfect will. He sees our unformed bodies...praying he's seeing a special one right now :)
