Do you realize . . . ?
Each day I wake up I realize again how His mercies are new every morning! It doesn’t matter the weather — rain or shine.

Romans 1:20 (NIV)
20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities–his eternal power and divine nature–have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.

Whether I am just sitting in my living room or out in the woods — He is real and alive. His presence is here and now. While walking in the wonder of the mountains you can feel alone and insignificant at times. Most of my life I have felt that way.
I have from my earliest days felt different. An oddball. Like I didn’t belong. Always feeling alone and unheard or cared for or about.
Where was that sense of I matter?!
Does anybody know I am here?!
Don’t you care that I am hurting?!
Why won’t you see my side?!
You don’t understand!
Can’t you see what is going on?!
You are not hearing me!!

Life didn’t seem fair or concerned for what was happening to me. So I spent most of my life fighting or running away, getting angrier and angrier and gradually becoming in raged. That took thirty eight years.
Then came the day I declared to the world around me —” I don’t know if there is a God and I don’t believe anyone else does either!”
What happened next shocked me and I raged against the voice.
It came in a still small voice quiet and gentle. It came through a counselor a Jewish fellow at that. And the Lord replied:
“The criteria as to whether I exist doesn’t depend on whether you believe or not.”

You will have to come back again to hear more — Hee! Hee!
