“Faith is the bird that feels the light
and sings when the dawn is still dark.”
Above all, trust in the slow work of God.
“We are quite naturally impatient in everything to reach the end without delay. We should like to skip the intermediate stages where we are, impatient to being on the way to something unknown, something new. And yet it is the law of all progress that it is made by passing through some stages of instability and that it may take a very long time. And so, I think it is with you. Your ideas mature gradually. Let them grow. Let them shape themselves without undue haste. Don’t try to force them on as though you could be today what time, that is to say, grace and circumstances, acting on your own good will, will make of you tomorrow. Only God could say what this new spirit gradually forming within you will be.
“Give yourself the benefit of believing that the Divine hand is leading you. And accept the anxiety of feeling yourself in suspense and incomplete.“
Teilhard de Chardin
All is in Divine Order and Divine Timing. There is a rhythm and rhyme for all that we experience. If we just allow ourselves the opportunity to slow down and go within and listen to the Silence that is there, there we will see the bigger picture; there we will find the answer to our questions; there we will know that we are Good/God; there we will know that we are held in the Embrace; there we will know that All is well; there we will become comfortable with the Unknown. For the truly creative lies beyond what is known.
The still, small voice within is your most trustworthy ally. Learn to really listen to your most significant other, that is, this still, small voice within. Learn to listen to your Self. Then you will know when, how, and even if you need to act at all.
“For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven.” Ecclesiastes
