Big questions really. Tough questions. I think it's those questions that seek to help us see ourselves more clearly, or simply slip into blaming others. I'd like God to simply work in the areas where I've made a mess of things, and I'm really thankful for all that he has done.
I read this quote today from Yancey's book entitled prayer, Yancey quoting Ray Anderson;
"Prayer is not a means of removing the unknown and unpredictable elements in life, but rather a way of including the unknown and unpredictable in the outworking of the grace of God in our lives."(p82, PRAYER, by Philip Yancey)
I don't know about you, but prayer and the past and all of the stuff we carry in our hearts and heads can be overwhelming. Yet for me the grace of God still shines through.
I hope all that made sense to someone other than me, if not, please refer to the title of this blog.
