Your Way or God’s Way?

Have you ever suggested to someone how to get a job done or shared with them what you thought would be a better solution? Have they ever responded, “That sounds nice, but I think I’ll do it my way.” Sometimes our way is not the best way. Sometimes it is our way that got us into the mess we are in. It is always God’s way that works the best. If we are always wanting to do things our way, we will always end up either in a disastrous situation or in a situations that is less than what God had intended for us. God will allow us to be stubborn and do it our way. He will not force anyone to do anything His way. If you want all you can get out of life and the best life available to you then you will quit trying to do things your way and you will find that God’s ways are the best no matter what you have to go through.

God’s Creation Works In Harmony

How much more can we as humans accomplish if we would work together?

Murmuration – it is something amazing to see.

No one knows why they do it. Yet each fall, thousands of starlings dance in the twilight above England and Scotland.

The birds gather in shape-shifting flocks called murmurations, having migrated in the millions from Russia and Scandinavia to escape winter’s frigid bite. Scientists aren’t sure how they do it, either.

The starlings’ murmurations are manifestations of swarm intelligence, which in different contexts is practiced by schools of fish, swarms of bees and colonies of ants. As far as I am aware, even complex algorithmic models haven’t yet explained the starlings’ aerobatics, which rely on the tiny birds’ quicksilver reaction time of under 100 milliseconds to avoid aerial collisions—and predators—in the giant flock.

Two young women were out for a late afternoon canoe ride and fortunately one of them remembered to bring her video camera. What they saw was a wonderful murmuration display, caught in the short video.
