I woke up in the middle of the night, as usual. And while I was still halfway between a dream and awake I heard my own lyrics inside my head. But not just lyrics I’ve already written. No, I also heard rewrites. New words and phrases to replace certain ones in the song. So, I closed my eyes, fell asleep, and moved on.
No, I didn’t move on. I listened to the new lyrics inside my head.
And they made sense. The new lyrics fit the song better than the original ones. And I enjoyed the updated message. But even more than that…I enjoyed the process. Because it felt like I was collaborating with myself. Or was it me?
So far, this might all sound like egocentric babbling. But there’s an important truth, going on here, I’d like you to consider.
A materialistic worldview says everything that exists is made up of nothing but matter and energy. But it’s a self-refuting position. Because the thoughts behind that statement are non-material…non-physical.
And that’s good news.
Unless your whole philosophy in life relies on the absence of a Creator God.
Then, non-physical information becomes a thorn in your side. A stumbling block you can’t move out of the way with more anti God rhetoric. And the sad news is, the opponents of God don’t care about evidence. So, their agenda is clear.
Mock and ridicule Christians for believing in “someone or something invisible in the sky.” Which, of course, we don’t do. But they don’t care about our intellectualism and scientific knowledge. Only that we believe in the God who is the ultimate standard of right and wrong.
Whew! I didn’t realize I had some steam to let off.
And it’s only 4 a.m. I can only imagine what this new day will bring.
But I know it will be awesome and so lyrical
’Cause this life we all live is a such a miracle.
And if you choose to be doubtful and satirical,
One sad day you’ll find my faith is quite empirical.
