Chemistry and God
So today at my Chemistry Review session, God had a lot to tell me!
What? You are confused at how God talks to us through a Chem Review? Yea… don’t blame you-but hear me out!
First off, I just wanna throw the fact that Jesus can talk to us through any and every life situation you we take the time to listen… but onto today’s specifics~
As we were working through problems, my professor asked, “what are the ways you can find delta S?”
Random assortment of answers came back at him, but he wasn’t taking any of them.
“No, what is the best way to find delta S?”
Again, more equations and such flooded the room.
“You don’t understand, the best and easiest way to find delta S is if I give it to you!”
It got me thinking… how many times has God tried to help us, but we weren’t accepting?
How many times has He just given us the answer-but we were too stubborn, trying to find it ourselves?
“And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.” -Philippians 4:19
A few problems later, while discussing phase changes our professor mentioned that, “You have to turn the stove on if you want it to boil.”
How true is this for life?
If we want something, let’s do something about it.
Not just sit there idle.
“Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men” – Colossians 3:23
As we wrapped up the review session, I was hit with another message – “Students, all you really need to do on this test is to find the point of the equation and solve it.”
Talk about life.
What is this life about?
This is our question. And we spend 100 years (if we’re lucky) trying to figure it out. Some are blessed enough to figure it out early on and just spend the rest of their lives enjoying it! Others, unfortunately never find it.
But what is the point? The reason for living?
Living and serving God – that is the point! This world is the equation, and following Jesus’ teachings and bringing others to His loving arms is the solution!
I’m going to leave you with the same words my professor left with us.
Joshua 1:9 – Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
