“The wonder of the human mind is that it can envision what it does not see.”c e hollis
Through my dream’s eye I can imagine things that do not exist. I can envision things and places I have read about or merely heard another person tell about. I can look back through my memories and find sights long “forgotten,” and pull them back as if I saw them this morning.
Ron recalls a sight–-a happening when he was only a small child. The family had arrived at his grandmother’s home in Kentucky. Granny Buelah came out onto her porch and looked down at her grandsons gathered there. She threw her arms wide and in a sweep she enveloped the three boys in her apron-covered skirts and smothered them with kisses and exclamations.
Your brain can download millions of images in a day, sort them, delete those unneeded, and record the important ones. Computers are amazing, but like a camera lens, no matter how finely engineered and produced, cannot on any level compete with the eye for speed or accuracy of function, neither can the computer compete with the human brain!
Our mind’s are touched and aided by our past experiences, by our spirits, and our emotions. They are capable of vision, of dreaming, of imagining. What computer can dream?
Our minds can look at an infant and see a college graduate. I can see a photo of an apple and almost smell the pie. I can imagine, dream, set goals, build a vision and entertain it. Put it in words just from seeing it in my heart.
Yet compared to the intellect of God we are all just children, just wisps of breath, nothing by comparison. What amazing creatures He imagined and made to live in the earth, what flowers! What awesome sights and sounds revolve around us and affect us daily— the sunrise, the glowing bright moon, waterfalls, and rivers, sand and soil, growing things—an infant who can grow into a graduate, a parent, a mother tending a new infant. What amazing creations are the eye, the ear, the hand, the foot, skin, plant fibers, rose buds, leaves. How wonderful wind and rain, thunder and lightning, fog and mist, snow and ice.
God’s visions and dreams for us move from His mind to reality. He has good plans for each one of those who know Him.
“Eye has not seen nor ear heard, neither has it entered into the heart of man the things God has prepared for those who love Him.”1 Corinthians 2:9
