“The only answer to our fragility is the real permanence of his presence.” (Carron, Disarming Beauty)
A fierce paradox in my life. Every day I feel frail and weak are guaranteed to be the times I feel furthest from his presence. I find myself begging the answer to my weary question: why have you abandoned me?
But the answer all along has been Him. Even when I can’t feel Him, He makes all things new. Even when it all seems lost, He makes all things work for my good.
I’ve been trying to add more of His presence to my life- daily mass, reflections, morning prayers, stopping to be grateful. Maybe these small steps will help to create the permanence my soul needs.
What have you done this week to find that permanence your soul needs?
