***The DOMINO Effect***


I was very inspired (as always)...at first it was just "pun" (we were just playing with words), then it became transformed into a discussion I will never forget. The little things in life do matter...little things like having a little chat with ur friend, in the comfort of a little cubicle with clothes and girls' stuff strewn all over the floor (lol). We talked about different things...we talked about school, then about life, then about life after life, then about the power of God. I can leave you with a part of the discussion that stuck in my brain the whole of last night though. She said God's power is like the "DOMINO EFFECT." Dominoes are small tiles traditionally carved from ivory or bone with small, round pips of inset ebony. The 'domino effect' is when a line of domino tiles fall one after the other because of the little push of the first one. But there is only ONE domino effect where the last tile does not fall, instead it gives an opposite reaction and hits the other tiles back up in the opposite direction. It is the game where God is a player. Think about chemistry, there's always an equal and opposite reaction for every action. It's kinda like waves rippling through a stormy ocean. In this game, although your situation may be a rippling domino effect (i.e. things in your life may be getting out of order one after the other), when God's playing the game with you, He becomes the last TILE. No matter how much you push the last tile, it's not going to fall down. In this game the last tile in the domino effect is a STRONG TOWER. No matter how rough life may seem, it's going to stand tall. It's going to stop the second-to-last tile from falling down...He's always there to raise you back up from the ground...where you've fallen...
Think about it...and when you're done, put a big smile on your face...

I'm thinking...I'm thinking...I've thought...BIG SMILE ...That's deep.

This actually reminds me of random walks...Like a drunken man trying to get through tunnel sometimes he goes straight, sometimes he gets knocked side to side. Picture the side walls as God preventing him from getting out of the tunnel path. Sometimes we're straight, sometimes we wander off to the side of the tunnel, but he's always there to put us back in the right path. ...Proverbs 3:5-6 says trust in the lord with all your heart and lean not on ur own understanding. In all ur ways acknowledge him and he will DIRECT UR PATH.
