what bothers me…

about atheists (or nontheists as they are now seeming to want to be called) is that they are so smug. But at the end of the day, they cannot disprove the existence of God. And at the same time, that smugness is what bothers me about some Christians, too. And maybe it’s not smugness, but self-righteousness. Or something.

Maybe it’s because I’m in such a place in my life that is so not “i have everything figured out” and is more “holy crap, how am I going to make it through the week??” And God is so kind and so gracious because here I am on a Friday night (well, early Saturday morning) and I have survived to blog another day.

I was thinking today that nowhere in the Bible does God promise that today will be easy. He says not to worry about tomorrow because what does that do? I cannot add another hour to my life by worrying. Which really blows my whole life insurance plan out of the water. But not worrying does not mean not planning. The Bible does say to count the costs before going into battle. So it’s a fine balance of planning, being smart and strategic – vs. worrying myself into a mess.

Anyway, right now our life is far from perfect. It is actually quite stressful. Why does God put us here? What does He hope we learn? What is the plan for this?

I don’t really know. But that’s ok. I have peace about it. Not smugness, but definitely peace. Even if I am having a holy crap day, it’s going to be ok. And I am glad that God is bigger than me and my plans. How will this turn out? No clue. My life is not neat and tidy.
