Is it possible that our rebellion against the spiritual (call it god, faith, whatever you like) actually proves that a spiritual authority exists?
What if we, in our frail humanity, are invited to find strength and healing in the scars of Jesus?…Scars healing within the shelter of scars.
What if we are asking too little of God? What if we are answering life’s complex questions with our own simple answers, mostly because we expect Him to remain silent?
It’s the unanswered requests of a heavy heart that often confound and confuse us in the journey of faith. Why would a good, gracious, loving God remain silent in our despair?
Can we be completely satisfied in this life?…Without realizing it, most of us are searching for ultimate satisfaction through the accumulation of our possessions, success in our careers, harmony in our relationships, margin in our finances, and even righteous religious devotion. We often believe that “one day” we’ll have what we need to be truly fulfilled, truly in harmony with the universe, and absolutely satisfied.
