~Greater than my imagination~


I learnt a very important concept during the concert tonight. It was when he started describing how heaven looks like...how it was described in the book of revelation: the streets of gold (not the usual gold, but a gold that is transparent), the gates made with pearls, and the light that is not provided by either the sun or the moon, but by the radiance of God Himself. After all these descriptions, he quoted ephesians as saying that even though we have great imaginations, everything that concerns God goes beyond our wildest imaginations (He goes above and beyond all that we can ever think or imagine). This means that no matter how much I dream, and no matter how wild my imagination runs...I can only imagine...but when push comes to shove, I cannot really start to comprehend the depths and heights and width...

Yes, that's the beautiful thing about faith! It's like trying to comprehend something that is 7 dimensions, when we are only three. There is so much out there that we just can't see yet. And perhaps the thing about faith is that the longer we practice the more we can see--as the ghosts find when they travel further and further up into the mountains in C.S. Lewis's _The Great Divorce._ Beautiful reflection.

Jaycee,

no, don't throw medical school away. It's nice to have well read doctors. When you DO find the time to read (perhaps over a break), the Great Divorce is only about 90 pages, and takes about an hour or two to read.

Good luck,

T-C
