Did you know that there is a phenomenon out in the universe so profound to our everyday existence that if it were to cease, we would literally fall apart! Not just us humans, but all of life. This is something that can’t be seen with the naked eye. A substance, that must be magnified so many times that it is a wonder it was discovered at all. Yet. using mathematical equations one brilliant scientist did uncover this wonder.
I am talking about the “String Theory”.
Have you ever heard of such a thing? I know that I hadn’t until I was watching a program on PBS one day. This program got my attention, it was so intriguing, with its eye-popping visuals and well-written theory. Although I didn’t understand all the scientific components of the subject, I did focus on one aspect of this enlightening hypothesis. They kept talking about these little things that looked like tiny strings. That everything in our universe is made up of theses strings and depended on them for existence. One scientist explained how the “Atom” was held together by these tiny string-like entities, which was the reason that the atom could sustain.
Apparently, a young scientist discovered this theory while searching through some very old books. Since then, many others have viewed all possible substances under high-powered magnification. After, magnifying the different matter, hundreds of times, this revealed a very peculiar movement. These tiny objects, resembling strings, vibrated with lightning speed. It seems as though these little strings are the “glue” sorta speak that holds everything together.
Imagine that, now you know where my mind went with this theory.
Col 1:17 And He is before all things, and in Him all things “HOLD TOGETHER”
I found this “Hypothesis” interesting, informative and faith building. Now, I’m sure that building my faith, was not the purpose of the show. Yet, God is always able to reveal to His children, what He wants them to know. Through the book of Colossians, God has already told us that these so-called strings, or the sustaining Spirit of God, does exist, indeed.
I know my take on it is elementary, but I think it is quite plain. View the program, decide for yourself.
Here is a point of view from a guy who does know and understand the theory scientifically:
… For the scientist who has lived by his faith in the power of reason, the story ends like a bad dream. He has scaled the mountain of ignorance; he is about to conquer the highest peak; as he pulls himself over the final rock, he is greeted by a band of theologians who have been sitting there for centuries.

Research this subject a little for yourselves discover the many ways God has revealed Himself to the world!
