Reflection: My Thoughts Are Higher Than Your Thoughts


Through being a parent, I have come to a personal understanding of this verse:

"As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts." - Isaiah 55:9

When Daddy and I talk, J listens in. At this age he is very keen to know and understand everything. He asks many questions, some of which we are unable to come down to his level and answer in a manner that he would understand. At times, all we could say is, “Trust us.”

This reminds me of us and God. I have so many questions I yearn to understand. God is high above. We are down here. God is God. We are humans. And there are many things that are beyond our understanding and comprehension. It may not be that God does not want to explain to us, just as it is not that we do not want to explain things to our children. All He could say is, “Trust me.”
