Where’s your heart? Where’s your head? Where’s your feet? Where’s your elbow? Where’s your eyes?
Perhaps you played this game with your grandkids. When I was a kid, I remember adults playing this game with me. Then to throw me off, they would ask, “Where’s your gizzard?”
Of course I didn’t know what a gizzard was or where it was if I had one or that this was a special part of a chicken which human’s didn’t have.
But isn’t the human body amazing?!
The wonderful complexity of the human eye takes light cast on objects and focuses them onto our brain and somehow enables us to visualize what is in front of us.
The human brain has about 90,000 miles of nerve fiber, about 100 billion neurons, and some .15 quadrillion synapses! I like to think of synapses as little sparkplugs in the brain.
The human brain is so amazing and complex that even the brain of a genius medical doctor struggles to comprehend the human brain.
And take the human hand with all of its bones, muscles, and tendons working together to type this sentence you are reading right now by just thinking it in my brain, causing my fingers to type the right keys and then to hit the backspace key, then retype as I struggle to put into words something I can’t quite express!!!
The Psalmist said it was WONDERFUL! That’s a good word for it. I think I’ll just stop and think about that. My brain has the capacity to meditate. God gave us that ability. So here goes, meditation commencing…
For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. Psalm 139:13-14
