Wonderful Quote…

Our questions can serve us well in a time such as this, a time of grave uncertainty, of soaring potential, of fragile yet resilient hope.  Our questions and questing are crucial, because they can help us live into the answer of the future.  I am certain of one thing: the love that is God is at the heart of the answer, just as it is at the heart of each moment–past, present and future.  Faith today, tomorrow, and always seeks to live, to love and to be loved fully.  It seeks the Holy and waits (though not always patiently) to be found; it nurtures and activates wisdom and compassion.  It chooses to embrace hope and to be embraced by hope, even when overwhelmed by despair; it seeks life even in the face of death.  We act in faith, knowing that we see only dimly.  But living in faith, we act anyway, choosing and doing the best we can.  We act and live in confidence that someday we will see face to face, that we will live into the answers.  For God’s grace embraces our questions as well as our answers and our blindness as well as our vision, just as the sun shines steadily through the night, waiting to illumine the sky at dawn.

  1. Thank you Helen – I love this quote, especially when she says, “We act and live in confidence that someday we will see face to face, that we will live into the answers.”

    We may not always have all the answers on this earth, but one day our lowly bodies and minds will be transformed and we will be like the Lord, we will see Jesus face to face. We will live into THE ANSWER. I’m wondering how many of our questions will fade away in the light of His glory? I’m learning to start letting go of some of those questions now and oh what sweet release. In Heaven we’ll have all eternity to explore the depths and wonders of God Himself, a wonder that will never end! PTL! I’m excited!

    And about eloquence my dear girl? Those words could have been written by you. I’ve seen you write words equally if not more beautiful. Keep writing!

  2. Susan…I feel like this is a really pertinent quote…this morning in church, the pastor spoke of trusting in the midst of the unseen…I guess it is the struggle of this life…but I sure want my heart and mind to let Him be my answer to all my questions…yet not question Him.
