Moses 1:4 -- On Endless Words

"And behold, thou art my son; wherefore look, and I will show thee the workmanship of mine hands; but not all, for my works are without end, and also my words, for they never cease."
Moses 1:4

The whole concept of eternity can be hard to grasp (at least for me)... and so everything like this I think is amazing.  That God's work could go on without end.  I think here on earth we grow up with almost a sense of helplessness, knowing that nothing ever lasts... that you can build and build, but there will come a time when you can build no more, and so achievements and dreams are limited to the span of a lifetime.  With God, and with ourselves too, although it is harder to see, there are no boundaries to dreams and achievements.
God showed Moses only a portion of his work, not because he was hiding anything, but just because you can only see a snapshot of God's creations, because they continue and are infinite.  Words too... which is strange and fascinating at the same time.  Strange because I get this mental picture of this dictionary that just keeps growing and growing until it is the size of a planet... the language expanding.  But perhaps we shouldn't go that far, and just see that God's communication with his children never ends.  Cool because we keep learning and learning and growing ... and God keeps talking. :)  If we ever think that we have enough revelation or knowledge, we're crazy, because as long as God keeps saying words, there is more to be had... and as it says, they never cease. :)
