I Don’t Have to Know It

“Certainly praying takes some admissions, that is, recognition of your state as a man. But this admission does not lead to shame, to a feeling of worthlessness or despair, but rather to the discovery that you are a man and God is God.

To pray is to walk in the full light of God. At that moment, conversion occurs, the restoration of the true relationship.

This conversion brings with it the relaxation which lets you breathe again and puts you at rest in the embrace of a forgiving God. The experience results in a calm and simple joy. For then you can say: ‘I don’t know the answer and I can’t do this thing, but I don’t have to know it, and I don’t have to be able to do it.'”

An Extraordinary Destiny

Hardships

“Hardships often prepare ordinary people for an extraordinary destiny.”
-C.S. Lewis

Amen to that! Whatever you’re going through right now, there’s purpose in it.

You may not see it. Heck, you may not be able to even fathom that this is possible from where you’re at right now. But, it is. Hang in there. God has a terrific and fruitful plan for your life – an extraordinary destiny awaits!

Have a great day.
