I’m realizing that it’s time, as a Christian, to move beyond God’s plan for my life, and start thinking about His plan for creation.

I think God uses His plan for our individual lives to draw us to Him, because, let’s face it, we’re all too selfish to care about the bigger picture; but eventually we need to realize that things are a lot larger than miracles in our own small lives.

We’re just part of his bigger plan.

We’re only one small piece of a billion {scratch that – a trillion} piece puzzle. An element in a large wall photo, a supporting character in the first chapter of a 500 page novel, a brush stroke in a museum full of paintings. God’s dreams span much more than the 80-90-100 years we’re going to be a part of this planet.

His plan is a redeeming plan, one that is going to make all things new.He’s not going to stop at just making this world sinless, or flawless. He’s not just restoring, He’s making it new.

New. As in never used. As in never thought of, never invented before.

We can’t even comprehend new, because basically, it’s never exsisted before. It’s completely new.

How’s that for a bigger picture?

It’s beyond exciting to try and wrap my mind around these thoughts, and it’s thrilling to know that it is coming, and that I’m a tiny part of it all.

“And I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away… And I saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heave from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
“And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with the, and they shall be his people, and God Himself will be with them and be their God.
“And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying; and there shall be no more pian, for the former things have passed away.”
“Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.”
