The Star is Born


Have you ever looked at the stars and wondered how they got into the sky? Have you considered that each grain of sand and each snowflake is unique?  Did God just throw the atoms and bits into the air like the contents of a watch and let them fall and hey presto each unique creation came to pass?

I am awed by the fact that each human being is unique as well.  Every one of us has a part to play in God’s great scheme of things.  God can and will instruct us and guide us as we read and learn His instructions.

I use 7 hours each weekday to work on Diamond Books, the project that God has given me to do.  I have a timer, to use the time carefully.  This was not always easy to do but it is getting better as God has disciplined me and helped me with this.  There are the usual distractions to overcome: the telephone and mobiles; the doorbell; the buzz of an insect in the room I am working in; and the housework staring at me.  However, my focus is getting better. There is a wonderful bonus to the work I do.  As the ‘Chariots of Fire’ hero, Eric Liddell  once said, ‘When I run I feel God’s pleasure’ so when I write I feel His pleasure, too.  So, it is not a hard task to do what I was made to do.

The Bible, as Sally Lloyd-Jones said in one of her blogs, is not about us but about the One who made the stars, the sand, the snowflakes and us.  He watched us individually as we were forming inside our mothers. Then He made every provision for us to live and move and have our being in Him.  Jesus Christ truly is The Star of this world.
