Significant?



Dirk and I had a wonderful motorcycle ride today. It was so beautiful out. When you are on a motorcycle, the world is open wide. Everything around you is alive with sounds, aromas, and sights. Nature is up-close and God’s beauty is everywhere.

There were many other riders out today, and plenty of traffic. I began to consider my significance in the world and decided I really wasn’t very significant. I thought, I am significantly insignificant. Then I thought, “No, that’s not right, because in Christ, we all have significance. So now I’ve decided I’m insignificantly significant!

Hope that makes sense to you----it does to me!

I have a very similar thought every time I stand near the ocean (obviously not when I am in OKLAHOMA, mind you. LOL). My years in Savannah, GA gave me an opportunity to spend lots of time at the beach, and I had many great God-moments there...realizing that although I am but a grain of sand in the scheme of the world, God CARES about ME.

Insignificantly significant. I love this.

There is far too much snow here in Ottawa to be out on a motorcycle...but I agree... insignificantly significant totally.

Confusingly clear! Not really; it makes perfect sense! Good post; nice pithy and makes you think!

Well there is always those thoughts that come in mind when you actually thinking about the whole world and then you. But you have to think like that. like you are significant. and Not only to a few people. there are alot of people that you are a leader to without you knowing or even you trying lol..Yes we are all significant through Christ and He put us where He knew we would play the biggest part in our lifetime for Him. He wouldn't have placed you here just so you could be insignificant...
Not sure where all that came from or if you even wanted that :) but thought i would let you know what i was thinking..
