Sometimes it’s hard to understand what’s what. Life is a mystery! Especially when there’s so many horrifying things happening around the world, in our country, communities & with our friends & families, too. War, senseless gun violence, disease, injuries, et all…
The thing about faith – it’s having faith amidst the challenges that makes faith, well, faith. To be sure of something we cannot see? Can’t understand? Faith says, I can’t understand why so much loss, why so much hurt, why so much tough stuff weighs my world down, weighs ME down. But faith says, I will accept the mystery & trust God.
Here’s a quote from one of my readings today:
“God oft times doesn’t give a lot of answers but just keeps telling us who we are. God keeps inviting us into that place where love is alive and where God is love.” Richard Rohr, OFM
And, not to forget! We are not spectators in our lives of faith. We need to be participants with what God wants to do around us, within us & through us. That’s how the senseless stuff stops when we say, NO MORE! And work to invite others to that place where love is alive and God is love.
grace, peace & LOVE

I think God in His Wisdom veils things from us because He knows we’re not yet ready to understand them. Having faith at times almost feels like being blindfolded and ushered through a door into an unfamiliar dark room, doesn’t it? The comforting thing is, He’s right beside us, holding our hand!
Amen, Debbie! It’s not easy when struggle with our blindfolds instead of reaching out & holding tight to God’s hand. Thank you for this powerful word! Blessings!! 💐🤗💐💜💐🙏💐
