Some Thoughts from a Morning in Starbucks…

Spent a little time in my local Starbucks this morning, post-workout. Here are a few somewhat random thoughts that made it from The Book, to my mind and heart, then to my Moleskine, and now to you loyal readers (all both of you!)…

From Psalm 90
God = ETERNAL! FOREVER! SOVEREIGN!
Me (Us) = dust! disappearing dream! dry, withering grass! NOT sovereign! open and accountable to God!

So…because He is eternal and has an eternal perspective on things, and because we are weak, powerless, and fleeting, because we are accountable and dependent on Him, we pray…

Teach us to make the most of our time, so that we may grow in wisdom.

More from Psalm 90…

Let us see your miracles again; let our children see your glory at work.

I don’t think the prayer is for God to start doing His work again. He still is working! He still is doing amazing things! The problem, and that for which we pray, is that our sight is limited, so we can’t see the works. We don’t pray that God would get busy again doing God-stuff. We pray that He would restore our ability to see and discern that which He is already and always been doing.
