"Where There Seems To Be No Way"

At this moment, you may be experiencing a drought in your life. It may appear that the losses are mounting. There's a good chance that discouragement knows your name. If so, please take heart...

“God, you were here all along, and I never knew it” says Jacob on awakening from his stone pillow.

"Such prayer, such seeing, takes away your anxiety about figuring it all out fully for yourself, or needing to be right about your formulations. God becomes more a verb than a noun, more a process than a conclusion, more an experience than a dogma, more a personal relationship than an idea. There is Someone dancing with you, and you are not so afraid of making mistakes. You know even those will be used in your favor. At that point you also have awakened from your stone pillow, and you know with a new clarity what you partly knew all along!" - Richard Rohr

May our eyes be opened to see the fountains in the Rock. May we wake up to see the ever-present Way.
