feeling insignificant and significant

Tonight at my lifegroup meeting we watched the Louie Giglio video about the awesomeness of God. Well, actually there are a couple of them, but this was the one about laminin… it’s making the youtube rounds. I had actually seen that part of the video before on youtube, but tonight I saw the whole thing. Wow. I know that there are those who would seek to ridicule or make light of what Giglio talks about, but it is powerful stuff. I came away from it thinking that I am so, so insignificant in the grand scheme of things, and yet, the God who breathed the stars into existence chooses to make me significant to His plan! So… wow. The catch, like I was talking about in my earlier post, is that I have to make myself a part of His plan. He’s worked me in, but I have to do my part to understand and participate… and that all comes back to spending time with Him.
So, my “new week’s resolution” (get it… like New Year’s, but new week…yeah, I’m really that clever…) is to make not just “make an effort” but to actually spend time with God every day. Not gonna be easy, because I know that there will be a gajillion things that pop into my “stream of conciousness” that I think I should do instead… but I’m going to try my hardest to fight them off!
Here’s the video, in case anyone hasn’t seen it. It’s a little long, but (and this is my opinion) well worth the time.
And, I’m going to post one of the comments that was made about it on youtube:
” I have a comment. The shape of laminin isn’t at all a “proof” of God’s existence or anything, in itself. However, it can be used as a beautiful reminder to Christians of our belief that God has, As Psalms tells us, beautifully made in his image and we can never escape Him because He is in us.”
So, even if the laminin itself doesn’t amaze you (but I do think that God does things like this to make us think…) it doesn’t change the fact that just as the laminin holds us together, so God also holds us together. Happy watching!
