The Mystery of God

I think there are two very heartening things about our day. First, we are all admitting we need some answers. That in itself is encouraging. We are asking. We are seeking. We are knocking. Because of our training or background or personality or a combination of these and other things, we ask in different ways. But we are asking. But it also is true that just as surely as we are looking in different ways, answers are coming to us in a diversity which reflects the mystery of God himself. The wonderful thing is that he is making certain that we are receiving and that we are finding and that doors are being opened to us.
