How rich are the depths of God – how deep is God’s wisdom and knowledge and how impossible to penetrate God’s motives or understand God’s methods. Who could ever know the mind of the Lord? ~St Paul’s letter to the Romans 11:33-34
As we know life can be unpredictable and uncertain. Like a gentle tide that lifts our boat it can also turn into a raging storm threatening to swamp us. Yet in the middle of every uncertainty, storm and darkness, there remains a sense of hope and optimism. This hope and optimism is at the heart of the Easter story too. Take away these and there can be no Easter. But what do we mean by hope and optimism? They can be empty and shallow if left on their own but in the context of a loving God they are powerful and liberating. When all else seems to be gone, God will always be there and will never abandon or desert us. This is real hope and it is life giving. We pray to God today and during this month of May, to help us through all the challenges of life.
We pray that we will always remain hopeful, knowing that God will always be at our side even when we are not so sure.-
