Have Faith

Times of struggle are birth pangs of new life.

Exodus 16:2

Here in the wilderness the whole Israelite community grumbled against Moses and Aaron.

+++

Despite God’s record of fidelity in leading them…the Israelites complained about their desperate situation in the desert.

We often do the same.

God leads us safely through each trial we face to new life…yet we still doubt.

We still grumble.

There is a Great Love drawing us and all of creation…forward.

Due to our free will and resulting lack of cooperation, it’s three steps forward…then two steps back. But the trajectory is forward to a grand conclusion.

Life is a Love story of epic proportions.

We are part of it…but each of us has a choice on how actively we want to participate.

To truly engage…you must lay down your ego’s desires and follow the inner-yearning that is planted in your heart.

This will lead you into many necessary deserts of transformation and then on to new lands of abundance.

It’s the road to your true self.

Trust that something better is on the way.

Love never fails…so it won’t fail you either.
