Jesus said to his disciples:
“Amen, amen, I say to you,
whatever you ask the Father in my name he will give you.
Ask and you will receive, so that your joy may be complete.”
~ John 16:23-24
On this same day four years ago, I wrote:
I have often realized that there is no compelling reason why I should be here. There is no irreducible mathematical formula the answer to which is my particular existence. In the face of such simple fact, science tells me I am a totally random event, which conclusion I instinctively and intuitively refuse to accept. I love science for the answers and explanations it can give me. I turn to my faith for things I cannot answer nor explain. Just as a flower reaches out to the sun, finding life and nourishment in its warmth, I reach out for the unreachable, seek to know the unknowable and dare to dream the impossible. ‘There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy.’ Or in science for that matter.
Today, I still seek the Lord while He can still be found and where He can be found.
I ask for His love and His blessings in my daily life, in good times and in bad.
I wait for him to knock at my door, praying I will be ready to open up and receive Him.
