I have to say, you were more creative with the K words than with almost any other letter! This was a hard one, huh?
KIND was a good choice -- we absolutely need to be caring and gentle and loving, treating other people as beautifully as we do ourselves.
The word I chose, though, is .... drum roll, please ...
Usually when we talk about "knowing" we mean, like, on a test when you "know" the answers (or don't!) One of my granddaughter Maeryn's favorite things to say now when you tell her something is "I KNOW that!" (Because when you're four and a half, apparently you know everything!)
listening to wise people talk
about God, learning stuff at camp and Sunday school and VBS. That's a pretty huge part of it.
The "knowing" we're talking about today, though, is simply getting it, in some deep part of yourself, that God's there. It goes beyond believing. It's being so sure of God that you don't have to try to explain or prove or give reasons.
You just KNOW.
If you want to comment today (and I hope you ALL do), complete this sentence, will you?
I KNOW God is there because_______________________.
You don't have to "prove" it or give a Scripture verse. What we're looking for is that FEELING you have, the thing that makes you sure.
Me? I know God is there because I wouldn't feel the peace I have even in this crazy, scary, very-weird world. Know what I mean?
