God’s will


I am reminded this morning of the great wisdom found in the words of our most blessed Julian of Norwich:

It is God’s will that we accept His promises and His comfortings as broadly and as powerfully as we can receive them.

And He also wills that we accept our waiting and our distress as lightly as we can take them, and pay no attention to them – for the more lightly we take them, and the less value we place on them for the sake of love, the less pain shall we have in experiencing them, and the more favor and regard will we have because of them.

Wise words indeed that travel the space of time and find relevance in the here and now.
