The bottomless pit

Oh, what a cruel thing the learning business is. I have certainly found that the more I learn the more I realize how much I don't know. Education is a cruel trick. It introduces you to fields, thoughts, areas, issues, etc. and each has more than one can ever know. How limited and finite I am. How overwhelming it all is. It's almost better to have stayed home and never expose myself to how small and ignorant I am.

To think that God is all knowing...that just rocks my small little mind. He claims to know the number of hairs on my head! (FYI God if you are reading this you need to stay on your mathematical toes because I'm losing hair left and right over the amount of information these professors are trying to cram in my head). He knows all that there is to know about everything that is knowable. Not only that but He created it to begin with! Oh, we have a very BIG God on our side.

It is a comfort to think that while He knows all that is knowable, He is also personal. Despite the best efforts of my theology professor I will never know all there is to know about God... but He knows everything about me... and yet He loves me anyway! If you can wrap your noggin around that you are a lot smarter than I.
