I don't know what it says about me that my spiritual musings often spring from media consumption. Speaking in song and TV catch-phrases. So here's a question to let roll around in your brain.
After watching 'The Adjustment Bureau' last night, thoughts about God's sovereignty and our free will restarted their little dance in my head. This is a subject that goes round and round in there like a Ferris wheel. Are they like Ebony and Ivory? Too many metaphors? Is this just my lazy excuse for a post?
How do we reconcile these two? Working to rest in the tension, I welcome your thoughts and discussion.
Personality-wise, I tend toward the fatalistic. Not spiritually healthy when this attitude leads to frustration and throwing up of the hands. Here are some questions to bounce around.
Inevitability of the path for life. Marriage, kids, job,location, salvation, etc.....
Why does life feel like so much course correction?
Does God really want what's best for us?
What is that, exactly?
How do these seemingly opposed realities interact?
What does scripture say about these?
Are we really just inside the "Stopover in a Small Town" episode of the Twilight Zone?
Asked in the humility of my limited human brain trusting in my Creator, even if He is too much to comprehend at times. I look forward to hearing from all of you who smarter, wiser, and more experienced than I. If nothing else, it helps get those brain cells up and running. And should draw us closer to God and each other.
