Calculated Trust, by DianaDee Osborne

ALBUM:      Amazing  LORD 'n' Logic   
Song location
“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, 
the evidence of things not seen.”  --Hebrews 11:1  KJV

Song Story:  THE  MUSIC,  dedicated to our Logic-filled God, 3 June 2010 
           These lyrics “came” on 10 April 2009.  I didn't get around to looking for a melody until 3 June a year later.  As a matter of fact, I didn't “look for a melody” even then.  I was “goofing around” on the keyboard and came up with what sounded like a cool shuffle progression. 
           I needed to record it on some paper, and instead of pulling up a blank template file, I opened my directory list of files for lyrics without music yet.  This was the first song I noticed, and “here it is.” 
           Another God-guided song written in minutes for your enjoyment... and for sharing His word that God IS The God of Logic,  not a feel-good false god.  God WANTS you to think for yourself, to use the mind He gave. 
          Isaiah 1:18 --   God INVITES  us in our doubts to "COME AND REASON..."
And this math song is a LOGIC PARABLE:  
We often just don't know all the facts that God does.   One companion song is “Half Baked.”
Song Story:  THE  LYRICS:   
         For a  High School/College Age Sunday School class, I was trying to explain faith using  the example that we “just know” that yellow is yellow and we “just know” how to add numbers.  (See song Just Know.) 
        But I myself had always believed in God but had often even until years into adulthood had my doubts about what looked like logical errors in the Bible.  So there I was in the middle of a class praying while trying to answer a question about how things can  look so very true and still definitely be wrong.... And then I had this great idea -- which I am quite confident came from Jesus,  the Master Parable   Teller   :)


PART 1.    The Real World of Unseen Math
Verse 1
Two plus two plus two is seven. 
Trust me -- this is true.
It's OK if you don't see it:
Facts don't change with you.
Here's the proof with a computer.
Open a spreadsheet.
Mark four cells in one column with
NO decimals for each.
Bottom cell needs the formula to
add cells  3,  2,  1.
Now it's time to enter facts.
Type these numbers in:
 Two POINT four    goes in top three cells.  You'll
 see   just   rounded   twos      then.
When the program adds them up,
        Cell Four adds to “Seven” !                    

PART 2.    The Real World of Unseen God

You believe in internet transmissions you can't see.
You believe in cell phone signals

           and of course, TV!
Why  is  it  so  hard   for   us   to 

                know   that   God   is   real ?
So much that you call “just luck” is 

                  God's loving help for you!   ......
THere are SO   many things that you believe in that you cannot see.
Where is the LOGIC  in saying THAT you will not believe in God until you see Him?
For years,  no one believed in viruses.  Then they became visible after time,  when knowledge grew and microscopes were invented and scientists sought   to find viruses.

God has PROMISED that EVERYONE who earnestly seeks Him will find Him - Jeremiah 29:11 to 14,   Proverbs 8:17,  
and Jesus's words in Luke 11:9 are just a few................

God loves you so much that
He sent His son to die on a cross for you...
Jesus loves you so much that   He  suffered for you so you can be forgiven and live with him forever if you just ask.

The Holy Spirit loves you so much that  
He WILL come give you wisdom if you just ask -  James 1:5.
You can logically trust what you have not yet seen  about God with a Calculated Trust 
despite not yet seeing all the facts, 
like hidden decimal values.
