Trust In Love


God is with you and for you.


Psalm 102:2-3

Lord, hear my prayer; let my cry come to you. Do not hide your face from me now that I am in distress. Turn your ear to me; when I call, answer me quickly.


In the Psalms we see every human emotion poured out to God.

It is part of the human experience to call to our Creator for help in times of need. And we believe that God actually listens to us and cares for us.

God is as close to us as our very breath.

But sometimes it seems as though God is not answering our calls.

Could it be that God is not absent…but that the silence is an answer?

We are all very impatient. I know I am. We want quick fixes.

But let us trust that God is answering us because we are beloved sons and daughters.

As Rainer Maria Rilke wrote, “Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.”

Perhaps the waiting is part of the Loving Process that will lead us to a deeper trust, faith, healing, wholeness…and becoming our true selves.
