A few quotes from an article I just read (if anyone wants the link::::::::)

"Believe in order to understand, rather than understand in order to beleive"

"these are our days and all things must come to pass in their time"

"The new star that announced the birth at Bethlehem was in its precise orbit long before it so shone. We are likewise placed in human orbits to illuninate. Divine correlation functions not only in the cosmos but on this planet, too."

God's love for the world can only be manifest through people who are in tune with the cosmos.

God so loved the world that he sent us to care for it.

God loves everyone. He has a plan, and a plan of support for everyone. God loves the world. His love for the world is manifest through unselfish acts of community service given by those who, for reasons they cannot understand, feel driven to serve their fellowman.

Are you comfortable with your spot in the universe? If not, what might you do to change?

"worldly anxieties are not part of being anxiously engaged"

"Ignoring the revelations about God's astounding capacity is like playing aimlessly and contentedly with wooden blocks featuring the letters of the alphabet, without realizing Shakespearean sonnets were created using that same alphabet"

"Though living in a time of commotion, we can stand in holy places and not be moved"

"Though living in a time of violence, we can have that inner peace that passeth understanding"

"Perplexing things will still happen, but we can still know that God loves us, a fact that can sustain us through so much!"

"How can we know that God is aware of us and loves us?" by taking note of coincidences that light our path "when GOD winks", and by the scriptures, by honestly counting the blessings and bestowals of grace in our lives, but most of all, He tells us by the still, small voice of the Spirit!"

"The mighty change is mighty hard work, and may seem roller-coaster-like as soaring revelations bring the gravity of humbling perspective."

"Part of God's ample provision consists of imperfect people like you and me, committed to shining and serving in our appointed orbits, knowing all the while that we are encircled in the arms of His love"

Are you comfortable with your spot in the universe? Has God ever made a mistake?
How would you answer other than Yes yes, no no, no yes, or yes no?

Also, I threw in one false statement. Can anyone pick it out?

rayww,

You asked if anyone could pick out the false statement that you posted. Could there be more than one?

Thanks for the poem, but I don't think false statements about one's faith contribute to a supportive atmosphere here.
