Brilliant mystery

Nothing less than shear brilliance. I am a big fan of romantic comedies, and I don't frequently watch anything besides romantic comedies. Sherlock is an exception. I have just finished the second season of Sherlock and I was not disappointed.
Billiant. Bravo.
I can humor myself into saying that I solved the mysteries before he revealed the whole truth but, what did I know without the director and script writers planting the information there?

For example, in the second episode this season, I guessed that it was an airborne hallucinogen. But that's only because that's my pet interest- drugs. I can't imagine a lay person to guess that without special knowledge. Well to tell you the truth, the second episode wasn't all that riveting, they kept planting too much for the audience to guess- the coffee... over excitement of the scientist...

The last episode was magic. Lies wrapped in the truth wrapped in lies. Decoding a code that was a meaningless code. Sherlock knew he needed to die to save his friends, he asks Molly for help- and this was not followed up, his own brother doesn't turn up to his grave, strange reactions when he falls off the building.

But we all feel so smug about figuring things out. We feel so smart when we finally work things out for ourselves, but we forget there was a script writer that wrote it all and gave us the clues every step of the way.

GUESS WHAT? even though our future seems like a mystery. It has already been written... and our God can see further than we ever can.  He has left little clues along the way for us to discover. 

Jeremiah 1:5

New International Version (NIV)
 5 “Before I formed you in the womb I knew[a] you,
   before you were born I set you apart;
   I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”

Ephesians 1

 1 Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God,
   To God’s holy people in Ephesus,[a] the faithful in Christ Jesus:
 2 Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
Praise for Spiritual Blessings in Christ
 3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. 4 For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love 5 he[b] predestined us for adoption to sonship[c] through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will— 6 to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves. 7 In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace 8 that he lavished on us. With all wisdom and understanding, 9 he[d] made known to us the mystery of his will according to his good pleasure, which he purposed in Christ, 10 to be put into effect when the times reach their fulfillment—to bring unity to all things in heaven and on earth under Christ. 11 In him we were also chosen,[e] having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will, 12 in order that we, who were the first to put our hope in Christ, might be for the praise of his glory. 13 And you also were included in Christ when you heard the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation. When you believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, 14 who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession—to the praise of his glory.
