Threads of Reality

What is reality?  If you follow the Bible it seems there is more going on around us than meets the eye... angels surrounded Elisha and his servant but they were only made visible after prayer for revelation.  Quantum physics postulates a universe of infinite possibilities, where an electron has a chance to be at the far reaches of the galaxy.

What is free will, what is determinism?  Are these only compatible in a multiverse, with the soul surfing along one of an infinity of equally-'real' paths?  And what does it matter which way we go?

We read in Scripture that what we do will be made plain in the light of day, that day that is Jesus Christ revealed.  Some will have wood, hay or stubble burned away to reveal gold, silver and precious gems, works of love done in faith.  Others may not enter into the realm of eternity at all, having preferred to live in darkness whilst the light of life was held out day by day, moment by moment.

Often one feels as if one is being nudged along, guided to a righteous path, both in the action of the rational mind, or the conscience, as well as in circumstance which seems beyond the ordinary.  Deja vu, divine appointments, miracles take place every day, if we would take the cues offered to us.

Amidst the chaos there is a still, silent voice, prompting us 'this is the way, go in it'.
