We all know that life is a gift. This precious existence takes us on the ride of our lifetime.
Life is like a roller coaster. Life is made up of an endless succession of highs and lows, laughing and crying, triumphs and tragedies. It can be very confusing. Just when we think we have an understanding and a grasp God pulls us in a different direction.
So how do we keep going? How to make something valuable out of the odd assortment of stuff that we find on our doorstep every morning? How do we survive success? How do we live through the losses and pains?
The answer is we don’t – not if we try to do it alone. What life asks us to do, to be, to give and to endure is quite impossible – alone. Although life may try to trick us into thinking that we can go it alone, experience has shown us that’s a lie.
God is whispering to us on a daily basis. Listen to your own breathing…and feel your life’s blood coursing through your veins. All the marvelous things, great and small, complex, intricate and beautiful surrounding us are God’s reassurances that we are never alone.
God is everywhere with Love, surrounding us with miracles and gifts. Our Creator is inviting us to open our hearts to find our strength and comfort for the journey.
God is calling out through all of creation, “Look what I’ve given to you. Trust me.”
Diana Ross sings about such trust – “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough”. Remember these lyrics?
“If you need me, call me. No matter where you are, no matter how
far. Just call my name. I’ll be there in a hurry. On that you can
depend and never worry.” (Don’t think Diana was referring to God, but if this is human trust, just imagine Divine trust!)
Yes, there is not an ocean that we cannot cross nor mountain high enough to move – together.
Be assured that there is nothing we cannot do, whether we experience joy or sorrow, that God is not there for each and every one of us.
Advice from a dear friend comes to mind, “If you pray, why worry?”
