I read a forum the other day, and I’ve heard some of my friends ask me wondering about the beginning of God. Did God have a Creator? How has God always been there?
God’s Word reveals that the LORD is the “I AM”. He always has been, and always will be existent. This idea of infinity or eternity is not an impossible thought. King David reflects on this saying:
as far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us. —Psalm 103:12
knowing is a spiritual quality, a gift of experience from God. True, inner strength can only be given as an opportunity from God.
Go back and play normal. My computer can’t handle awesome.

That’s a hard word to define without experience. Here’s my definition: temptation is when some outside force pressures you into doing something you know is wrong either by experience or by hearing from someone else. Temptation will drive you to the edge of your will, and pressure you into hell blinded over by an illusion of heaven.
You name me
Who am I
That I should company with something so divine?
Mercy waits, Overjoyed
Prospect of finding, freeing
I love this song because it talks about being born-again as a son or daughter of God. In the beginning, God names you (creates you). I just picture this naked newly born baby—innocent, pure, needy, and humble—with everyone around being so ecstatic, or overjoyed. That’s how it is when someone is born-again into God’s kingdom.
Rain, rain on my face
It hasn’t stopped raining for days
My world is a flood
Slowly I become one with the mud
This song is what I believe God wants us to be reminded of everyday. That we need Him desperately beyond a shadow of a doubt, and it’s through working with the dirt and mud that we are reminded everyday of this.
