I have seen the burden God has laid on the human race. He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.
Ecclesiastes 3:10-11

I’m thankful that on all days, but especially on a day like today, God is much bigger than I can comprehend. Even if I can somehow come up with one sentence or phrase in our language that clarifies an attribute of His character, it’s just a small glimmer in comparison to all that He is. When I remember that, on days like today—where emotion and religious jargon ramble on and confuse the truth—it’s easier to settle down and rest in the things I do know to be true of Him and to long for the things I do not know yet, but one day will.
