There is a “There”

Reading an article a few days ago about Julianne Moore, the actress claims to be an atheist. Her non-belief stems from early childhood turbulence and instability.

“I learned when my mother died five years ago that there is no ‘there’ there,” she reflects. “Structure, it’s all imposed. We impose order and narrative on everything in order to understand it. Otherwise, there’s nothing but chaos.” http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/julianne-moore-believes-therapy-not-767484

My first thought was, “How sad. How sad for a person to feel like that.”

My second thought bordered on natural cynicism, “Doesn’t she know how good she’s got it? Or is it she wants a reason to blame God? Why not? Where was he when she needed him? Yet how can you blame God if you don’t believe he exists?”

What about the lone flower in a bed of weeds?

What about the cardinal who makes a landing on your backyard tree limb in sub-zero temps?

Or that the sun rises and sets every day?

You can’t make order out of chaos from a human standpoint.
If we see nothing but chaos and attempt to impose order into it, we have nothing. 

 

When you can’t see past the weeds to the flower you are missing the point.

When you can’t see that something or someone is taking care of that bird, how can hope survive?

When you take for granted the sun rising and setting daily, what else do you take for granted?

Focus is imperative to life. When we focus on wrong things, we will never see that lone flower blooming so magnificently right in front of us. That flower didn’t just happen by itself.

At least Julienne Moore’s theory reveals that peace/love/happiness/joy is not found in fame and fortune.

A happy successful life on earth depends on who lives in our hearts. And when we find Jesus and accept him into our hearts, we find that there is a “there.”

God

  2. Fantastic! So glad you are “Back in the game”, so to speak. We needed your voice for a long time. Congratulations for writing with such wonderful insight.
    You are Truly Blessed!

  3. well said – it’s been m experience that those who have plenty – who take for granted what they have – are the ones who tend to be atheists – and it is for those lost souls that we must pray the most! In WWII – the saying was coined – “there are no atheists in a foxhole!
