Today is Friday and I am once again linking up with others at Five Minute Friday…

When given a word to write about, sometimes too many thoughts come to mind, but I want to encompass the whole world in one thought: all of mankind is in a search.

 

When I set myself apart from God, which is easy to do, I am on the search for what I want or think I need. I do not see God in the flesh, though he is in me and all around me. Think of waking and knowing you slept all night without consciously breathing. He’s taking care of that and you don’t give it a thought.

 

A study in any part of nature proves a higher being exists. Birdwatching is one of my favorite pastimes. It delights me to see an eagle soar over the Susquehanna River, or a hawk watching from a tall leafless tree. He’s waiting for movement; for breakfast.

 

 

 

Though God is not in the flesh, when we are still and concentrate on the search we are overwhelmed by his presence. He is everywhere and in everything. The divine spark is in us all, and while searching for life, may we not deny the spark.

Just

It’s Five Minute Friday and the word for today…

The word just in my mind, can only have one ending…justice.

In the Lord of the Rings, Gandalf and Frodo have a conversation about Gollum.

“It’s a pity Bilbo didn’t kill Gollum when he had the chance.” Frodo is angry. He wants justice because the ring has come to him to destroy and it’s all Gollum’s fault.

But Gandalf says,” Don’t be too eager to deal out death in judgment. Even the very wise cannot see all ends.”

Many people want to see justice in this world. We can’t stand to see the young harmed, the senseless death from drugs, while drug lords keep selling. Why do the good suffer so much?

It is not ours to deal justice.

That belongs to the Creator alone.

The eyes of the Lord are repeated 479 times in the Bible.

He sees all, he is all-powerful and no event on earth goes unnoticed.

His eyes look to and fro over the earth looking for the righteous. Do not despair, he will deal justice in the right time. Meanwhile we must spread righteousness that shines bright.
