Thankful: Ability to Comprehend

Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. – Colossians 3:15

This month of November, people tend to think of what they are thankful for more than other months of the year. Rightfully so! Its the month that contains Thanksgiving. You might see posts on Facebook leading up to Thanksgiving listing these things. I have always thought this was a great idea so I plan to do just that on my Facebook, and I will be sharing them with you. But guess what… I will be going more in depth for you. I will be bringing God into each one. So here is today’s:


November 1

The first thing I want to state thankfulness for is the ability to comprehend as much as I can in order to learn more about God.

There are some people in this world that do not grasp the concept of God and all of His being because something just doesn’t “click” in their mind. To them, its just hogwash. I grieve for them. I feel so bad for them. I ponder on the question, why can I understand but they can’t? I can understand their reasoning to a point. Maybe too many horrific things have happened to them. Maybe they don’t see the point of being here on earth just to die in the end. I had many of the same questions but not to the extent that I rejected God. 

Then there are those who aren’t mentally capable of comprehending God. They have a mental limitation and don’t seem to grasp His wholeness… of what we can see. I would love to be in their mind for one day to see how they see things especially when it comes to God and His creation. Now, I know theses beautiful people see God on a different level, but I am curious to see how far their comprehension goes. 

Share your thoughts! I would love to hear your answers to these questions: Do you know someone who rejects God? Do you reject the thought of the existence of God? How can I help you understand (if you would like to understand)? Do you know someone who is slower cognitively? Do you have an idea on how they see God?

  1. Right now I am going through a very difficult period in my life, but God’s presence in everything is something I don’t doubt. I see Him in my newly planted winter lawn even, and right now I feel a desperate need to see Him all the more as I struggle with myself – my thoughts, feelings, my own heart. The thought of who Jesus is makes me happy, and I am sad that some do not know him.
