More Than. . .


Just go to the beach and try to avoid it. You'll find it gets everywhere. . . on sand handsImage by angela7dreams via Flickryour feet, on your clothes and in your car.

Take a handful of sand and look at it closely. Now try to count each grain of sand. You might want to sit down, it's going to take some time.

While you are counting, keep this in mind:

"How precious also
are Thy thoughts unto me, O God!
How great is the sum of them!
If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with Thee." Psalm 139:17,18

As you count grain by grain by grain, remember that the thoughts of the Lord unto you are more than the number than the sands of the earth! And lest you be tempted to think those thoughts are not good thoughts, remember this:

"For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. " Jeremiah 29:11
