Let's Go Back to the Bible

If I can’t see it, is it really there?

Sitting at the red light, I watched the tall grass swaying, the palm trees waving, and I even felt my van rocking a bit.  Looking at the other drivers around me, they did not seem to notice or be concerned at all.  I contemplated (but did not actually do it) asking the lady in the car next to me, “Why are those trees leaning and the grass moving?  Do they have muscles of their own?  I don’t see anything pushing on them!”  Of course, she would have looked at me like I was an idiot and probably said something like, “Beeecauusse the wind is blowing!?  Don’t you know anything?”  To which I might have replied, “But, I can’t see the wind!  And I don’t believe you can see the wind!  So, how can you possibly know it’s the wind if you cannot see it?”  I imagine her final response, before speeding away from the loony man, may have been, “No, I can’t see the wind, but I can see all the effects of it!  Look around!  I know it’s there!”

Chances are that the lady in the SUV doesn’t believe in God.  But, I could use her same words, “I can’t see God, but I can see all of the effects of God!  Look around! I know He’s here!”
