God is Unfathomable, Honduras Day 10

In Francis Chan’s book, “Crazy Love,” he describes our intellect and our understanding as the size of a soda can that sits in the ocean while God’s infinite wisdom, personality, whatever else you’d like to throw in there is the ocean. For us as humans to think that God has to fit into our little soda can of understanding is well, soda stupid.

This idea Chan proposes comes from the first chapter. I can’t quote it since I’m listening to it on my computer. So understand that the above is a loose paraphrase. But the book is definitely worth a read.

So what does this have to do with Honduras. For me to question God has been allowed by Him. He is even answering me in ways that my soda brain can understand. But He doesn’t owe me anything.

He is not constrained by anything and He knows everything. Yet, like I said yesterday, He is involved in the details of our lives.


Recently, I was on the phone with my daughter and she began with, “I can’t believe how big God is…” I finished, “And how little He is.”

How He could be so grand, yet be involved in the intricacies of our lives. I don’t know about you, but my soda-sized brain is overflowing.

I have an idea. Take a walk on a beach somewhere. If you’re not near one, look at the night sky.

Tomorrow, I’m going to begin to wrap it up. Good night, friend. Thanks for taking this Crisis of Question journey with me.

Got something to say? Go for it!
