A person on
the radio was talking about how inconceivably BIG our God
is...how He spoke the universe into being...how He breathes
stars out of His mouth that are huge raging balls of fire...etc.
etc. Then He went on to speak of how this star-breathing,
universe creating God ALSO knitted our human bodies together
with amazing detail and wonder.
At this point I am LOVING it (fascinating from a medical
standpoint, you know.) .....and I was remembering how I was
constantly amazed during medical school as I learned more and
more about God's handiwork. I remember so many times
thinking.... "How can ANYONE deny that a Creator
did all of this???"
The speaker went on to talk about how we can trust that the God
who created all this, also has the power to hold it all together
when things seem to be falling apart...how our
also our sustainer.
And then I lost my breath. And it wasn't because I was running
my treadmill, either!!!
It was because he started talking about laminin.
I knew about laminin. Here is how wikipedia describes
them: "Laminins are a family of proteins that are an integral
part of the structural scaffolding of basement membranes in
almost every animal tissue."
You see....laminins are also what hold us as humans
together....LITERALLY. They are cell adhesion molecules. They
are what holds one cell of our bodies to the next cell. Without
them, we would literally fall apart. And I knew all this
already. But what I didn't know is what laminin LOOKED
But now I do.
And I have thought about it a thousand times since
(already)....Here is what the structure of laminin looks
like...AND THIS IS NOT a "Christian portrayal" of it....
if you look up laminin in any scientific/medical piece of
literature, this is what you will see...
Now tell me that our God is not Amazing!
