When we finally make the agreement with the unknown - to live in that place of not knowing what will happen - We don’t get to change the rules mid-stream. When a new situation arises that shakes the core of us - takes us back to some frightened childhood time - We don’t then get to demand then that we know what will happen.
Opening up to faith is not situational. It is a permanent state of belief, trust and fully turning ourselves over. Those times that catch us up short and take us again to the all too familiar fear of having to know where we are going, are sign posts along the way, reminding us that we’re never quite there. When we pause in the core of our unease, there is a calming familiarity that says, “You’ve been here before. Let go, and you’ll move on to the place that cradles and cares for you.”
It is not the outcome that provides us with that sense of “ah”, but finding wholeness and peace in the center, that will never let us down. This is faith.
