“Thank You. What’s Next?”

by David Lehmann

lent_4thweek_250x370For me, the most reassuring passage in the entire Bible comes at the beginning of John’s Gospel: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God.”

For me that summarizes my faith. In the Gospel passage for today, Christ reiterates this promise: “I know Him for I am from Him and He has sent me.” Today’s Psalm reinforces this: “None of them that trust in Him shall be desolate.”

To know with certainty and faith that Christ and God are one, joined by the Holy Spirit, is the only way I can conceive of God. I try to start each day by seeking to find that place at the core of my being where God dwells and embraces me. I then try to say “Thank You,” ask “What’s next?” and take the next step with the trust that I will have enough light for the step that follows.
