The Wisdom and Knowledge of God

O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments, and His ways past finding out!

For who hath known the mind of the Lord? Or who hath been his counselor? Or who hath first given to Him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again?

For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things:
to whom be glory for ever.
The Apostle Paul

Saul of Tarsus was converted to Christianity on the road to Damascus after persecuting the church.
He thereafter became an apostle, planting churches and teaching the new believers in what is now Turkey and Greece.

This prayer is taken from his letter to the largely gentile church in Rome, written around A.D. 57.

Thanks for coming over to my site and giving us all prayers and support.
As to your question, my sons dad does not talk much about God. Every time i do though, he tells me enough about god, lets get back to what we are dealing with......
So now you know why my stomach is getting a little bit upset as it gets closer for my son to leave.
Believe me, i am praying for my sons dad to find god. This is really a tough time for me.
Thank you for your support again!!!
((((Hugs)))) Love,Stacy

Proof that is arrogant to think that we could possibly wrap our minds around God.
