"My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways," says the Lord. "For as the heavens are higher than the Earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts." - Isaiah 55:8-9
The statement "a penny for your thoughts", was put to a young man seated on a park bench by a woman who had been jogging and was resting for a while. Suddenly the young man flashed a smile and said "Thank you, thank you". He began to tell the story of how he came to be sitting in the park. He was planning to spend his last day on Earth and was at a dark stage in his life.
As a youngster his mother brought him to this park, but she died and life was rough for him as he went from foster home to foster home. For him, life dealt him a heavy blow and he was not prepared to go any further. People didn't care. There was no love shown. Jobs were hard to find and money was scarce. Nobody really thought that much of him to even ask him a question, so where did this lady with a kind voice who sat next to him come from?
The statement "a penny for your thoughts" caused him to emerge from his thoughts of gloom and death into hope and gladness. He had met the wife he had long prayed for and was at the beginning of a brand new life chart.
Some people find the very concept of divine revelation difficult. They cannot come to accept that God discloses himself to mankind in so many strange and mysterious ways; but without divine revelation, we as human beings are like a boat drifting without a rudder in turbulent waters.
The vastness of the difference between the mind of God and the mind of man is indescribable; for mankind to strike a balance, he must acknowledge that almighty God is his creator and the creator of all that is on the Earth, in the Earth, above the Earth and beneath the Earth.
"My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways," says the almighty.
How many times in our lives do we think thoughts and do deeds that are contrary to the will of God. We smile, laugh and fraternize, but it is only from our lips and not from our hearts. We say things that people would like to hear but completely ignore and scorn their wishes and requests.
Consider God's thoughts. Can we discover his thoughts or read his mind? We can't even read each other's thoughts. Certainly someone saw James Holmes, the young man responsible for the Colorado massacre that night at the theater.
What if they were able to read his mind as he entered, or knew his thoughts as he purchased weapons? Going through high-powered body scanners at airports and elsewhere cannot bring on screen the thoughts of those who would pass through.
The global situation of tragedy by reason of mass killings, bombings, shelling, give true reason why we should cry out to God more for the cleansing and healing of cruel and wicked thoughts of those who have no remorse, shame or guilt. It moves them not one iota to see innocent children and defenseless women and men dead and soaked in their own blood.
How we pray that more than ever, God will reveal himself to us and speak to our hearts, so our souls could hear. Speak to our hearts, father. calm every doubt and fear. Help us to know that the enemy has not gotten the better part of us. You make plans for your children beyond their wildest imagination. Your mercies are new every day and so are your blessings.
We confess that your thoughts are not our thoughts, neither are our ways your ways. We acknowledge that as the heavens are higher than the Earth, so are your ways higher than our ways and your thoughts than our thoughts. For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and return not thither but water the earth, making it bring forth and sprout, giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater, so shall your word be that goes forth from your mouth, it shall not return to you empty.
Thank you father God for the blessed assurance of your word.

As Hurricane Sandy barrelled across the western coast of New Providence Thursday night, Nirvana owner Cedric Munnings could not sleep.
By dawn, much of what he had spent years developing was gone.
"Last night was rough," Munnings told The Nassau Guardian as he worked with cleanup crews yesterday to clear the substantial debris left behind by the late season storm.
Nirvana is a popular beach spot for churches, businesses and families, but in Sandy's wake, it has become a mangled mess.
"All the rooms were full of water," Munnings said.
"Then outside in the parking lot was three feet of water. In the back here we lost the patio, we lost the sports bar, and we lost some trees and the fence."
Munnings said Nirvana Beach Bar has been through its fair share of storms in its 38 years, but he did not expect such damage from Sandy, which at times had winds in excess of 100 miles per hour.
Chris Fox, who teaches music, said they lost about $200,000 worth of equipment and materials which were stored at Nirvana.
"We had sandbags about six feet high trying to stop the water to the front because the sea was coming in," Fox said.
"We were definitely prepared. We had rocks stacked on the sea front and, if you looked out there the storm moved the rocks.
"If we didn't have those rocks there we might have lost the house."
Along the western coast of New Providence, other residents told similar stories.
The floors of some homes were blanketed with sand and furniture was tossed about like rag dolls.
As emergency crews carried out their work along West Bay Street yesterday, area resident Roger Gomez Jr. said the road was completely covered in debris after Sandy.
Gomez was busy clearing his parent's driveway of rocks and fallen tree branches when The Guardian spoke with him. Across the road, the waves were crashing as the remnants of Sandy raged on.
"The whole of the house was flooded and the garage was flooded," said Gomez, who had trouble standing in the fierce wind.
"We're just trying to clean up the debris on the driveway first. We had to nail up some doors too.
"Some trees fell, a few things blew around and the tractors were around here early clearing up the road."
Across the street, Omar Munnings said the waves the night before were ferocious.
"When I arrived here at 5 o'clock this morning I met the waves from the sea crashing against the place and [they] actually plunged a rock into one of the windows," said Munnings, who also lives on West Bay Street.
"I had about five inches of water in the house as well."
Munnings added, "We have a lot of work to do when this storm is over, a whole lot of work."
From Saunders Beach to Go Slow Bend the waves were crashing onto the road yesterday.
The sand from Saunders Beach had washed onto the road and completely covered the ground of the nearby Shell gas station and blocked off a portion of the road for most of the morning.
Earlier this year the Ingraham administration spent $2.2 million to restore sand to the beach.
Piles of sand near Sandy Port made the road impassible yesterday morning and a police car got stuck.
Noted psychiatrist Dr. David Allen was busy clearing a portion of a fallen tree branch outside his West Bay Street home.
The branch was blocking a portion of the road.
He seemed cool about the storm, noting that if he had pruned the tree regularly he would not be outside with a team of workers trying to move it.
"This was a scary one though; the sea was raging and it just took our shutters, knocked them off, broke windows in the bedroom, and took, I mean, big clay pots and threw them up," Dr. Allen said.
"I think we need to look at the islands and say God bless them."
