Meaningless

The race is not to the swift or the battle to the strong,
Nor does food come to the wise or wealth to the brilliant or favor to the learned,
but time and chance happen to them all.
Ecclesiastes 9:11

Go eat your food with gladness, and drink your wine with a joyful heart, for it is now that God favors what you do. Always be clothed in white, and always anoint your head with oil. Enjoy life with your wife, whom you love, all the days of this meaningless life that God has given you under the sun- all your meaningless days. For this is your lot in life and in your toilsome labor under the sun. Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might, for in the grave, where you are going, there is neither working nor planning nor knowledge nor wisdom.
Ecclesiastes 9:7-10

God doesn't want you to worry.
Life is so much smaller than we realize- it's not about us.
It's not about the things we do right or the things we do wrong- God covered that.
God's got that nailed to the cross with Him.
I often think God says to us I want you to see me through my eyes
I want you to see the world like I see it and then you would understand
You would understand love and how much I love you
I love the wilderness because it's so easy to find God in his creation
The way God made things, they're unperverted, they're pure
God's ways are so perfect, so just, so beautiful.
Everything not in Christ is meaningless
