How Much Can One Truly Know

Do you ever have moments when you realize the comprehension of everything in your life is quite little. It's in these moments I feel like a dab of genius fluid was dropped on my brain giving me just enough insight to understand how much I don't know in life.

It's in these moments I wonder if our mind was created not to completely comprehend our existence. Possibly as a way to keep us under control protecting us from spiraling out of control any faster than our current potential.

I don't believe we were created to be lab rats, I think that to be quite the opposite. I think we were meant to work under a certain confine for our own good. I hope that one day I will completely understand, but I don't think it will be in this world.

On many occasions when Asher is content it can be a huge relief. Don't get me wrong i love playing with him and hearing him try to talk. Seeing him smile and laugh is one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen, but it can be hard work trying to entertain the little fellow.

This morning I felt like I understood why GOD wants us to be content. There Asher sat in his vibe chair content as can be, winding down from a hard 2-3 hour session of waving his arms, trying to talk, standing as I held him on my stomach, and using all the brain power he could muster trying to figure out who he is and how he got on this big round rock floating in outer space.

So just as when I feel relief and peace when Asher is content, I think the same goes for GOD when we are content. GOD is like, finally. Maybe this is why GOD invented sleep. Forced content, it just doesn't get any better than that for GOD and us.

"Not that I speak from want, for I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am." - Philippians 4:11
