Words of Wisdom

I had a very helpful meeting with a good friend this week. I thought I'd share one of the many helpful insights he had to share. Just one for now. I'm guessing if I were to try to list them all it would look more like a book than a blog post - there may be more to come later:

"What you see God doing is never as important as what you don't see Him doing."

"He is always up to more than we can see. Our eyes are too dull and His work is way too subtle for us to be too comfortable with saying 'This is what He is or isn't doing.' It's kind of like the light spectrum. We are able to detect with normal vision only a fraction of the actual visual field. So i suppose that if you are fleshing out the metaphor, it means that God does His best work in the ultra-violet and infra-red."
- K.G.

There's nothing like good wisdom that make's one think when one doesn't feel much like thinking, eh?

Sounds like a good, godly friend to keep around.

This friend has regularly been a great blessing - certainly worth keeping around.
