BOGGLE. Have you ever played this game before? My brother Tom has been visiting us this week, and we’ve been playing this almost every night before we go to bed. You get a set amount of time to write down words that you see through connecting the letters either up, down or diagonally. When time is up, each person takes a turn at reading the words they have found. Often, you end up with the same words(for which you don’t get any points), but it always amazes me how either myself or another player will come up with something that nobody else saw using the cubes. I began to think about the word BOGGLE last night, so I looked it up in the dictionary.
–verb (used with object)
|1.||to overwhelm or bewilder, as with the magnitude, complexity, or abnormality of: The speed of light boggles the mind.|
Boggle. Yes, this is what God does to me so often. How many times have I sat down to read the Bible or have been listening to preaching and suddenly I “see” something in God’s Word that I never before had seen? (even though I had read those same verses at other times) How many times have I been in the presence of God and have been so boggled by his holiness, unconditional love, unspeakable joy that I couldn’t help but to weep or let out a shout or dance before the Lord? God is so big, and at times when my mind is opened up to view just a portion of His greatness, I am boggled. My prayer is that Jesus, this great, big, wonderful God will boggle your mind today!
P.S. Just for fun, see how many words you can find in this Boggle cube. The words have to have at least 3 letters.
