Jeremiah 16:14-15

"Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that it shall no more be said, The Lord liveth, that brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt;
But, The Lord liveth, that brought up the children of Israel from the land of the north, and from all lands whither he had driven them: and I will bring them again into their land that I gave unto their fathers."
Jeremiah 16:14-15

This is kind of cool.  It bugs me when people say "God is dead" and talk about Christ saying he was a great teacher, but "of course" he was not divine.  Miracles happen every day, whether or not we look around us enough to see them.  And I like this scripture because it shows that someday that will be apparent to many people.  Now, whether that will happen because it will happen in an amazingly dramatic way, or because people in general will be more sensitized to God, I don't know... but it's cool that it will happen.  And, as with all future events, cool that we can participate in it, and be a part of it.  We can remember this, and be some of the first to start spreading the saying around. :)  Seriously though, it is cool to be part of something bigger than yourself... cool that God is wiser than we are and can show us how to be part of something we can't even see.  Like building Zion.  I look around me, and there are little bits and pieces of Zion around, but I can't imagine how to put them all together into a whole... how to help people change their hearts... even how to change my own.  But God knows... God has the picture of the puzzle in his head, and he will tell us precisely where each piece goes... and he will change our hearts for us, if we go to him to ask. :)  Life is so freaking miraculous, isn't it?
