All tagged desire


I feel as if far too many people try to understand God and all of His ways. I genuinely wish that I could just sit down with each and every one of those people and talk to them about the fool's errand that they have embarked on. As Saint Augustine so correctly put it: if one thinks they understand God, it isn't God. What we can do though, is get to know Him on a much deeper level.

It's a long road

The truth is that I don't know where I'm going. But as Thomas Merton so eloquently put it "I believe that the desire to please God does, in fact, please Him." Over the past couple of weeks, I've spoken at length about ensuring that our lives are directed towards pleasing God and living the life that He'd want us to live. If we understand that notion, then we will always be wary of that desire in all that we do, and with the grace of God, we'll always do what he desires of us.
