Peace family, when was the last time that God opened your eyes to something familiar, in a new way?
God is so amazing and so creative, and for whatever reason, he’s been working a math renaissance in my life.
After years of feeling frustrated, confused, intimidated, and like a failure in regards to math, it occurred to me about a year ago, that I am a smart woman, and there’s no logical reason that I can’t improve in math, or understand concepts that I felt incapable of grasping during high school. I’ve never been interested in iPhone games, but I started playing one that is teaching me math skills, and Peace Family, I am so amazed by math! I am just floored by the intricacy, logic, rhythm and beauty of math. We all know about math in science, but I’m finding math in music, math in cooking, math in art, math in nature, math in stars, math in so many astounding forms, and I’ve only scratched the surface. Math has always been like a language that I couldn’t speak, that no one was willing to clearly explain to me, but I feel more affection for it now than I ever have before. I feel like I am noticing more functions of math around me every day, and am awed in a fresh way by how all-knowing, creative, and what a planner God is. It is giving me a fresh perspective of God, and I am thankful for math!
Peace family, what is something that you can take time to examine and appreciate? What can you look at in a new way? Is there a skill that other people have that you don’t really value? God made those people with that skill, and there is a way for him to be glorified in it.
Be encouraged, Peace Family! Try something new, and see if you can’t see some of our Master Creator’s gorgeous handiwork!
