I’m so thankful on this TGIF that God made us with 100 trillion cells in our guts (and about a trillion on our skin) that outnumber our own cells 10-1, and their genes to ours, 125-1. Given that the bacteria and yeasts in the gut all give off various chemicals, and there are up to 1,000 different species of them that synthesize these different chemicals, it’s comforting to realize that this is an astronomical, exponential problem in terms of variables to figure out. He could have created us 6,000 years ago as discrete beings, wholly human. Instead, he chose to make it all mind numbingly complex so that we’d take it all on faith.
And isn’t that JUST what the Bible tells us? Take it all on faith? Wow. God is so wise, so brilliant. I’m dumbfounded by His mystery. Now, I just know that he has a plan for me personally, and I need not worry about anything much.
I have a friend, in Jesus.
