I thought

August 20, 2013 8:53 am

I thought I knew something already
that I understood and I could manage
thet I had found a way to deal with You
and a solution to each of my faults
but thanks to God
everything has finally fallen into pieces
I am left with my empty hands
and Your love

Sister Maria of the Compassionate Christ

Often, when the order of our lives falls into pieces, we experience a complete peacefulness of God. But what could seem His detachment or iindifference is rather a moment when He asks “Let me be who Iam – God who redeems, lifts up, works, loves. And let yourself be a creation that needs Me”. That needs God not as a pleasant extra but as a necessity of life. Like a child needs a Father, like someone who is forever hungry for love. Who asks and receives.
