Lost?


"What you are seeking
is seeking you."
~Rumi

Apparent contradictions exist,
carefully pointed out
with our self-made scepters
our limited scope, 
based on our combined five minutes of experience we've had on this planet:

Contradictions in the Book of books,
The Word we follow,
even where God Himself is concerned....

In Reality,
There are no irreconcilable differences,
Only finite minds which cannot span Infinite Distances.

Enter the Way Himself,
the Truth,
the One who came to bridge the gap

Our Path Homeward is plotted through Paradox,
Soaked in Mystery;
So much depends on knowing the Unknowable,

Faith asks us to begin at the end, 
to find rest in the Final Analysis,
The Constant of our Equation:

that God Is.
that God is Good.
That God is Love.

If the factors you're currently considering
do not add up to this end,
keep seeking...

You will Find,

and in the finding,

You will be Found.

"May you be rooted deep in Love and founded securely on Love, that you may have the power to grasp what is the breadth and length and height and depth of Love; to know the Love of Christ, which far surpasses mere knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God."
-Ephesians 3:17-19

  1. One of my favorite hymns from the Mennonite Hymnal:
    I sought the Lord, and afterward I knew
    He moved my soul to seek Him, seeking me.
    It was not I that found, O Savior true;
    No, I was found of Thee.
