Finitude · Wonder

finite…

Reminded today of my finite nature…

Driving home in the evening… there is a sense of anticipation of what I will do… all I could do… with the time alone…

But entering the house… my finitude is quickly revealed…

Mail to check and deal with…

Kitchen to clean…

Following up on unfinished business…

Relationships to nurture…

In the end… the sun sets… without me doing one thing I dreamed of doing on the way home…

And I embrace the truth…

I am finite…

Which leads me to wonder… and find comfort… in His infinitude…

I will remember the deeds of the Lord; yes, I will remember your wonders of old. I will ponder all your work, and meditate on your mighty deeds. Your way, O God, is holy. What god is great like our God? You are the God who works wonders; you have made known your might among the peoples.

Psalm 77:11-14 ESV
