Thoughts from Sunday School

"The Ancient of Days" by WIlliam Blake
Today we discussed our need for God.  To me this is very much like the long reference of creative people who testify to the need of their muse.  I have heard writers say that when they begin their writing they have no complete idea about what they will say.  Rather they begin their writing and something totally unexpected will emerge—something that came from their muse.  Just so, we need the Lord.  If we don’t feel this need, then perhaps we are not facing life with true creativity.  We are relying too much on our own expertise and knowledge—in other words, too much on past experiences and skills rather than appreciating the unique challenges of the present moment.  Ah, but a man's reach should exceed his grasp, Or what's a heaven for? (Robert Browning).  This is only possible when man throws himself from raw need upon the mercy of God.
