If you were in a class, Philosophy 102, it would probably not be long before you would be asked questions such as these: what are we here for, where did we come from, what is our purpose, and where are we going. Life’s great mysteries! God says, “Lean not to your own understanding, my ways are not your ways.”  So He is likely not going to explain to you what “nothing” is since our brains mostly only think “space” instead of nothing.  I don’t even want to take Physics 1! Those things are too big for my brain.  

In the spiritual realm also, that’s the way God is.  God has given us the basics in the Holy Scriptures.  That is called the milk of the Word.  God so loved the world… By faith we are called to believe on Jesus Christ, his birth, his death, his resurrection.  There are a lot more interesting things we can know, called the meat of the word.  But you need not blow out your brains because your teeth are not strong enough to chew steak.

He will give you enough answers to help you find peace as you snuggle down in his pleasure, knowing you came from God and you are going back to God.

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

    This is so true. The Bible is not written only for the scholar but the average person. As we grow up in our faith we can feast on the meat and potatoes. That’s why it’s so awesome. The basics are all we need. Simply put John 3:16

      That scripture is number one in teaching the gospel. Verse 17 is basic also. It is not in the heart of a loving Lord to see anyone be lost. Price was high but it was paid. Now just ones’ stubborn will keeps him from the Prize.

  2. True, He will give us according to what we are able to accept. But we should be willing to accept it. 😉

  3. Sweet! That’s a great picture of you, too.😊

    Amen and amen! I became lost – in high school and college. I began to ask all those questions-and God sent two angels to tell me HisStory! Born again that day.
    But just like the Israelites, I wandered off course. God let me find my way back into a pig pen….Then through HIS Word, I returned to Him! Hallelujah!
