What does it profit a man

For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world only to lose his soul. This is how it feels lately as I have spent countless hours viewing many degrading images as I have made the insane circular passage through my maze of lust. I think of maize corn with its intricately close yellow and brown kernels, stuck tightly together.
These kernels are part of the identity of the ear. They are tough to separate yet they are essential to the core of their being.

I also think on the fact that the earth has a core. A solid foundation that can not be moved. How in earth science, I learned that the earth had a core, a mantel and a crust. It is amazing how the God of the universe has held this fiery ball together but with great power. That is how Jesus is going to treat the world until the time He judges it for the sin since the world has ignored HIm.

I praise you Lord for how wonderfully I am made but also for how wonderfully you made our earth as well. I marvel at it yet I spend so little time going back to when I was youth and learned these things to delve deeper. Instead I go on my merry-go-round to try to find something to give me satisfaction. Yet only knowing it is my attempt to put new wine in old wineskins. They just keep breaking. So Lord help me to attain to the goal of your perfection. Under the cross, one day at a time.

Thanks for your glory and your grace, Lord.
