Stalling Out

This I the shortest story I’ll ever tell on this blog.

The other day, thinking over some of the arguments I’ve heard against God, I had  one of those moments of arrogance I often have, when I think to myself that I’ll think not as a Christian but as a “smart”, worldly person. In arrogance I thought to myself, “maybe they’re right. But I don’t care if I die and I find out God isn’t real, I’ll still be glad that I spent my adult life in the faith.” It’s a true sentiment, but it came not from gratitude for the Christian life, but from a desire to weaken the laws of my own religion in exchange for sounding a little “smarter”, a little more “logical”. Well, right then and there, my car stalled out for just a moment, preventing me from merging into the lane that I immediately thereafter realized had a speeding car passing through my blind spot. Guess God is still real, and still in charge, and resistant to being put underfoot, even if just intellectually.

God bless you, and have a good weekend.

Psalm 46:1-6 God is our refuge and strength, a tested help in times of trouble. And so we need not fear even if the world blows up and the mountains crumble into the sea. Let the oceans roar and foam; let the mountains tremble! There is a river of joy flowing through the city of our God—the sacred home of the God above all gods. God himself is living in that city; therefore it stands unmoved despite the turmoil everywhere. He will not delay his help. The nations rant and rave in anger—but when God speaks, the earth melts in submission and kingdoms totter into ruin.
