I have achieved many wonderful things in my life. I have created
amazing things out of nothing. I have built popular stories and
fictional universes that hundreds -- even thousands -- of people enjoy. I
am hugely successful at most of the projects I undertake. I have
experienced things others can only dream of. I strive to be respectable,
trusted, determined.... remembered. But I am not, nor will I ever be
great. I am little. I am tiny. I am a miniscule success story in this world -- in this vast universe -- that I am part of.
God alone is great. And when I consider my own amazing achievements in
this life, I am but a single speck of sand on an endless beach compared
to what God has engineered. God... is great. I am but a tiny reflection
of a tiny part of Him.
I have been wonderfully engineered, from
the muscles that give me strength to the unique and complex DNA that
makes me who I am. I have been created out of nothing, beginning life as
nothing more than cells combining on a microscopic level. I have been
given the breath of life, a gift only God can provide. I have been given
intelligence and granted the right to choose my own path in life. I
have been blessed with wonderful things I could never have obtained
without God's wisdom and love. And I have been eternally redeemed from
the death of sin I was born with -- a victory only Christ himself could
I am successful. I may be amazing. But only God is great.
To God be the Glory.
