More Thoughts

I have become a firm believer in the truth that nothing occurs on this earth that God does not will, or at least permits. As He is of His essence just and good, all things are ordered to His glory in His Wisdom. Yet, it seems that there are particular occurances that are 'neutral', things that simply happen, which adds nothing to God's manifestation of His glory. What purpose does it serve that a bug is trampled upon, that a particular trashy novel is written or what colour t-shirt I decide to wear to the beach?
The theory that there are 'neutral' happenings, which God passes over without much acknowledgement or design does not sit well with me. However, in our current state, with a limited cognitive faculty, such a mystery baffles us. Even though, it 'appears' that no reason exists, a divine ordering must not be ruled out merely because of that.
