Live the Liturgy ~ 24th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Rest in the presence of God simply because God is God and you are you.  This is all that is necessary.  Out of this relationship will come inspiration, understanding, courage, constancy, truth, and virtues of all kind.  We will find ourselves knowing the true meaning of things and developing a depth of insight that is not found following purely human venues. It is God who inspires and opens human hearts to see truth and beauty.  In God, we understand all of our relationships with a richer appreciation and come to know who Jesus, who speaks of God's kingdom, really is.  The trust that is fostered from resting with the Divine One allows us to see that God's ways are not our ways.  There is something bigger going on in this picture of life. It is something mystical and magical that seeks to surprise us at every turn.  It is not for us to cling to this world and its limitations.  Our adventure is to dream bigger and brighter, realizing that it is even in suffering that the radiant light of the dawn will come.  God's ways allow for our paths to be rocky, challenging, difficult, and even crippling at times.  Purely human eyes cannot understand the 'why' of such experiences.  The eyes and mind of God, however, reveal and detail a journey that ends in glorious resurrection joy.  When we lose our axis and become too human in our thinking, Jesus rebukes us and gently reminds us how to see.
