How does a horse’s body read the hours of sunlight to know when to shed its winter coat?
How do the seeds buried in the ground over winter start sprouting at just the right time in the spring?
How do the stars stay in place, so that we see the same stars Job saw?
How do memories work?
How do animal mothers know how to take care of their first young?
How do spiders know how to build intricate webs?
How is it that earth is the exact distance from the sun to support life?
How is it that the dark-eyed junco looks different depending on what area of the country it’s born?
So many “how” questions, but none keep me awake at night. I often find myself in company with David, who wrote, “LORD, my heart is not proud; my eyes are not haughty. I don’t concern myself with matters too great or too awesome for me to grasp” (131:1 NLT).
My brain is most definitely finite, and can only take hold of so much! The rest I leave to the Creator, who holds it all together.
Now It’s Your Turn!
