For the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength
Comfort and truth about God’s power and ability and strength; in awe that He chooses us, calls us, to live amongst His power, ability, strength.
Without him we are foolish, weak, lowly (verses 27-28), but — Jesus becomes for us wisdom from God- that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption. [1 Corinthians 1:30]
Just say the name of Jesus.
This St. Joe thing has been tiring, new, different, lonely, but this St. Joe time has also been God slowly nudging me into this truth. God wants our hearts and minds to seek and feel this truth daily, and so many times, I don’t seek, I forget this truth, I draw near to everything but Him. Which is so silly that we do this because He is wiser and stronger than anything else we think or worry about.
Lake Michigan has become a thin place for me, a place where I can’t help but not see and feel Him. Today it’s been especially thin:
My morning sunrise run–
My evening beach time of napping, reading, praying, praising God–
And the in-between of my day was patients and physical therapists and trying to lead evaluations and messing up sometimes while learning lots. Grateful.
Scripture that resonates–
I wrote let God be God, because I need to let Him be Him. I need to draw near in hopeful expectation and let Him meet me here, exactly where I am. And I know He will, He does, He is. He shows up! In Chicago, in Traverse City, in St. Joseph, in Petoskey. He does He does.
