Sing The Analogous Truth : Fitting The Ocean in a Glass
Now that the Summer is over, which is my busiest time of year at work, I should have more time for my fellow readers and bloggers!
So, I thought it would be a great idea to begin with a monthly series, which The Analogous Truth has been worldly renound for with the likes of “Lessons From a Jedi” The Analogy of the Ring” “Transformers“, “Lessons From the Godfather” and the most recent, “LOST in Analogies”
This next series will be called “SING The Analogous Truth” as I will take analogies that I find in songs and really speak to the Character of our God.
So, without further a due…
SING THE ANALOGOUS TRUTH: FITTING THE OCEAN IN A GLASS
The Afters are a Christian Band that came out a couple of years ago with a debut album called , “I wish we all could win”. In that album there was a song called The Way You Are.
The chorus goes something like this…
It’s like the sun swallowed up by the earth
Like atomic bombs in reverse
As if the glass could contain the sea
That’s the way you are in me
It’s a pretty awesome song in and of itself, but what I wanna focus on was that line…
As if the glass could contain the sea.
I love that analogous imagery. I absolutely love it!
To imagine the God that created the universe and hold everything together in the palm of his hand….is living in me now!
He is inside of us!
No matter what you are going through right now. Remember, you have the creator of the universe inside you! The same hands that formed the mountains.
The same hands that shaped the Earth.
The same mind that imagined the Sun and the stars
and Spoke everything into existence,
is the same hands holding you now.
the same voice is whispering to your heart.
The same creator is creating a new YOU!
The God of Abraham, Issac, and Jacob is Blessing You!
When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is mankind that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them? Psalm 8
To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. Colossians
