“Therefore, will I trust you always, though I may seem to be lost and in the shadow of death. I will not fear, for you are ever with me, and you will never leave me to face my perils alone.” — Thomas Merton
I am experiencing one of those times when I don’t seem to know where I am going. There are many changes going on around me and great insecurity which have caused me to feel far away from the love of the Universe and I don’t know how to find my way back.
During times like this, when I have no answers, is it enough to simply just ask questions? My inclination is to be in control, to put my mind to work and figure things out. But I am finding that some things simply can’t be dealt with only with logic. All I can seem to do is ask the questions, have faith in the answers as the Universe reveals them to me, and let go.
I’ve been told that I’ll find new faith by working through these situations where I don’t have the answers right away. Part of life’s wonder is its mystery. It takes faith to not only accept the mystery, but to embrace it and love it.
