This world with its highs and lows, joy and grief, times of happiness and suffering can be difficult to understand at the least. Yet we are challenged to do just that. To find God’s presence through the chaos of our thoughts, minds and lives.
I struggle when I’m looking for and needing answers. What I often find is silence. It is hard to sit with thoughts and emotions that I don’t want to sit with. The mind and the world offers much in the way of busy activities and distractions to keep us from looking deep within ourselves.
Look for answers as to who I am and what I should do with the rest of my life. Looking, searching, wanting…
Sorting through my emotions, selfishness and self-destructive thoughts in search of joy, freedom, happiness. In search of God. As difficult as it is at times it is what we are called to do.
