Today we link up with Catholic Mom to discuss Chapter 2: Assembly Line Construction: Human Desire, Revelation, and Faith.
First let me say my attention is not the best right now. I have too much swirling around me and in my head. But I read the chapter! And love it! Favorite quote: “The saints were not people who were spiritually proactive. Rather, they were people who were highly responsive to God’s invitation.” Wow. Not being spiritually proactive is a recurring message in this chapter and one that is difficult and comforting for me at the same time. I like being proactive, forging ahead, planning and all that sort of thing. But God wants to reveal himself to us and enter into a relationship with us. Not the other way around. It means I need to have patience and wait. Which is not what I want to do today.
Looking at today’s questions, I realize that my life is somewhat of an open book. And while I struggle often to say “they will be done” , my desire is to say it always.
