Do not be afraid of human weakness. Do not be afraid to call out to God from the depths of vulnerability.
Blame, anger, despair, abandonment: give voice to it all. Bow your head and give it all to the Lord.
We have our model in Jesus.
And at three o’clock Jesus cried out in a loud voice,
“Eloi, Eloi, lema sabachthani?”
which is translated,
“My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” Mark 15:34
Thanks Mary! 🙂 What would I do without you? God Bless, SR
We help each other, don’t we?
I guess we do Mary, but you have so much wisdom from God and He flows from your heart. Anyone who cannot see or hear that in you is blind and deaf. I know you must be a dear child to His heart, because you are so precious to mine. You say so much in so few words. That in and of itself is such a gift. I am so thankful He lead me to your blog, and I have cherished it every single Sunday. I wait for it and have since the first time I read it. I carry each post with me in my life. Not part of it, but all of it.
When I have questions you are always so gracious about answering them, even the questions where sometimes I may doubt what is being said. Somehow your explanations always seem to make the doubt go away.
God Bless you dear friend and sister. It is very few people who I relate to, but I am a contemplator myself. There is never a sentence, line written, or word said, that does not go to my heart. It stays with me, until I can get it figured out. I feel very blessed with you in my life.
God Bless, SR
