I do not always understand. I know my confidence does not always tell others that story, but it is true. The only benefit that can come with time is the awareness that listening, watching, and struggling to understand can be more important than acting, posturing, and even speaking. Are things really what they seem to be? Are the answers really the answers? Is everything as dire, bleak, or terrible as I might think?
No, No, No.
If one was to look around, unless one holds onto Hope, is willing to walk with Guidance, and is open to Divinity’s Passion (change), I would gently suggest the answers are problematic. Chaos reigns in every life. Evil strikes in the innocent and manipulative with equal furor. The resulting pain can and will overwhelm the strongest, most disciplined, and admirable among us. It is a bleak situation looking to break free in our life. The potential for an ugly journey is very real and should not be ignored.
I am learning that the tea lady has unique wisdom that makes a difference in my day.I am finding that one of the greatest needs we have in our communities is compassion.I am finding hope is illusive if it is not from Truth.
Wrapping this all together is my willingness to see, really see. As I looked through the camera lens last night I realized there were unending stories I had not bothered to even see, much less listen to. I was living in a world of my imagination and perceptions. My rationale ultimately was my own. It looked a lot like ignorance.
Often this carries over to my view of God. “The fact is, it was our pains he carried—our disfigurements, all the things wrong with us. We thought he brought it on himself, that God was punishing him for his own failures.” (Isaiah 53.4)
With the gray rain clouds of the morning sky I know the battles are coming. God will be here, in your life and mine. What happens depends on my approach. I choose God’s.
