Holly pointed me to a simple, home-made advent video by Ann Voskamp… Ann said something wonderful and worth thinking about today….
“Maybe more than scientific conclusive evidence of God… maybe the dark depths of us long for a wounded weeping God who doesn’t write answers for us in the stars, but but writes answers for us in His scars. Maybe in ditches and deathbeds–maybe we aren’t seeking evidence of God as much as we are seeking an experience with God. Instead of explaining our suffering, God shares it. …because he knows mere answers are cold and his arms are warm. Remember Job? After losing his health, his wealth, his children… Job’s question is not “Why me, God?” but, rather, “Are you with me?” What ultimately comforts us is not knowing the plan—but knowing his presence.”
