…is not essential to living.
What is essential is the sense of God’s presence during dark times of questioning.
Our need for specific answers is dissolved in the greater issue of the lordship of Christ over all questions- those that have answers and those that don’t.
A heart in close communion with God helps carry you through the pain beyond the power of mere words.
I have been listening to Ravi Zacharias’ audiobook, The Grand Weaver, which is where I heard this quote from Calvin Miller. If you have ever questioned “fate” and the unfairness of life/where is God when it hurts/why doesn’t He answer my prayers… then this is the book for you. You can even listen to the first chapter online here. It brings me to tears to looks back at my own life and see how very carefully God has arranged circumstances again and again to turn my heart to Him. The Beautiful Weaver with the design all planned is only asking for my whole hearted trust.
