I was laying in my bed the other night, chewing angrily over people- people in my life, and people in general, everyone except myself of course! My thoughts were restlessly churning around; I think the word for this is 'ruminating', and I do a lot of it- in fact, just call me The Ruminator!

These thoughts were not surprising or new- in fact they are the same type of grumblings that are likely to spring up the next time I feel irritable.

Thoughts that are so picky, petty, and childish, that I suddenly pictured rising high above the whole world, and then I imagined just how tiny the world would look to God, physically, not to mention how minuscule we each must look from such an infinite height!

Then I thought of our emotions, thoughts, and the quarrels that so often come from them.

God sees us all as equally important to Him. He made us an earth to share and told us to love one another, which Jesus remind s us repeatedly.

We all possess similar human t rates, strengths, and imaginations, and God offers us an unlimited supply of inspiration and love, from which we can draw from, and council and guidance are eternally available.

Yet when he sees what we are thinking; judging our equals by assuming we are perhaps more intelligent, or kind hearted (big mistake), we can only thank our Lord, that since He is infinite, so is His mercy, patience, and forgiveness.

It's true then, that compared to God, not only are we physically almost non existent in size, but we are clearly minute in wisdom, love, and everything that God is.

I can also imagine God needing a pair of spiritual microscopic spectacles to see the poor state of mind I was in the other night!

It's good to try and imagine God's point of view, and not to forget how small, and fleeting a life we are blessed with here on earth.

I've heard the saying,' What you think about expands'. Well so can our thoughts, when directed by God, and then, our little lights, like glow bugs, might be visible for God to see without needing those spiritual specs!
