Just letting it go...


To pray contemplatively is to abandon one’s idea of how and why it all works: God, justice, or prayer. It is to abandon ourselves to trust in the living presence and reality of the divine, mysteriously at work within the darkness of the human condition - a living presence apparently not in the business of straightening out everything we would do, or to our specifications.

  1. This is a beautiful quote, Mike. Reminded me of:

    'And unto everyone who is conscious of God, He always grants a way out of unhappiness, and provides for him in a manner beyond all expectation; and for everyone who places his trust in God He alone is enough. Verily, God always attains to His purpose: and indeed, unto everything has God appointed its term and measure.
