Wonderful Maker

So I'm studying Biochemistry and I made a diagram of all the pathways of the catabolism of the main macromlecules (how the cell breaks down different types of food :) and it's just cool seeing how it was put together and just knowing and believing that God put it together.

This semester I got to see God's sovereignty, sometimes walk in it, and I realized that all aspects of Him just came together - if He could not fail in His plan for Biochemistry, He could not fail in His plan for each day. If He sustained Creation - even if it's a fallen Creation, He can sustain my heart and soul, even if both are caught up in grief, worry, or desires. If He has redeemed and will re - create this Creation, He has redeemed and will renew my heart day by day. Knowing this, I can surrender my heart, my day, my worries and grief, and everything to this Wonderful Sovereign Creator and Savior.

"What a wonderful Maker/ what a wonderful Savior / how majestic Your whispers / how humble Your love / with a stregnth like no other / and a heart of a Father / How majestic your whispers / What a wonderful God." (lyrics by who else - Chris Tomlin!)

Not to me but to His name be the glory

First of all, kudos to Chris Tomlin for his awesome lyrics skills because that's where half my lyrics quotes come from.

So, I had this wild n' crazy idea that I would flyer both the BC351 sections with flyers that gave examples of how stuff could have had to be designed and then the implications of those findings.

I ended up doubting a whole bunch of stuff:

whether Scott meant Chem A101 or A103 when he said Chem A101, whether I put the flyers right - side up - which actually I didn't for 1 stack in my room :( and just that people would even notice them. I hope at least some did.

Anyway, I have had to keep my armor up all day. Seriously all day because - yeah. I woke up doubting stuff and I had to battle with myself on whether I should even flyer the 8:00 class because I wanted to go to the Rec center. Riiight.

So, even though I'm writing this as though I handled everything, it was really God. No, seriously, it was really God. He gave me the idea and the guts to do it, and He has helped me fight back every doubt (which were many and re - curring) and just allowed me to grit my teeth and do it.

in other news

I'm running off of 5 hours of sleep which is very rare for me. This is due to seeing the midnight showing of the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe. Yay movie! I am also fasting because Branden Pullen said to do so before Worship Night which is tonight. So I am also running off glycogen and fatty acids. 3 or 4 or 5 cheers to The Great Biochemist (aka God).
