I once went to Disney World with my cousins for 10 days. At the end I felt rejuvinated, despite the fact there is not a lot of Christianity there. I guess it has become worse. A hangout for immorality. But there are ways to get rest on a vacation, but I do not really know of anything but staying home and wasting the few days you get to do something in a lifetime.
This is a place for any profound thoughts we might have. Anybody is welcome to post any profound thoughts you might have had recently, or any not so profound thoughts. It may be updated daily or maybe not a post for two months, depending on how much thinking we have done lately...
My pastor signed my Bible in High School seemingly a million years ago with the quote, "Either this book will keep you from sin, or sin will keep you from this book." That seems to be a worldwide universal truth since it was written. It seems to only get more true with time.
There's a teen at work, nice guy, good attitude, good work ethic, basically a great coworker. He has this rare bone disease, something genetic, and he's not really supposed to lift heavy things.
He asked the manager to get somebody to lift something 50 pounds in weight for him. The manager told another guy to take care of this. The other guy started making catty comments about "Well I'm getting this because (first guy's name) doesn't want to." I made the observation in passing - as politely as I could stand being at the time - that the first guy has a bone disease and doesn't need to be lifting that heavy box, and the second guy shut up.
But it started me thinking. I've been upset with people sometimes when I thought they were shirking their fair share of work. Not a lot, mind you, but often enough to bug me, because I wonder how many of those people really just couldn't do what I thought they should be doing.
My profound thought although trying to be humble is that God is everywhere at all times, the Bible says this. He is omnipotent. I also like that God loves his children and sent his Son to save the world by changing it one person at a time or in groups through bible believing churches. May God bless everyone
When you are alone with yourself and you realize it's okay to be alone with yourself, you are able to start figuring yourself out.
When I go to the animal shelter to find a dog, I can't tell anything about any of the dogs they have because ALL the dogs are yapping and any dog I want to look at is yapping just like all the rest. I have to ask to get the dog off alone, where I can deal with that dog without all the other dogs barking.
Similarly I am able to best figure myself out, think about things that are important to me and figure out why they are important to me (and figuring out WHY they are important to me is often more important than identifying which things are important to me) when I am alone, without the whole rest of the world speaking their opinions all around me.
