To Believe in God

God is not too hard to believe in.God is too hard not to believe in it.

(in my opinion anyway . . .)

Surely even the wildflower is a witness to God’s presence.

    your reference to God’s presence in nature immediately brings St Francis to mind – he said so many profound things about Nature in respect to God as an example for us. I also think that without Jesus I wonder if I could ever believe in God – it seems to me without Him, through a relationship and the Good Word in the NT I could not believe. But who knows!!

      Thank you for your comment. Yes, we certainly see life through the lenses of our experience of Jesus. Of course others, with a different frame of reference, also believe in God. I am always amazed at the poetry of Rumi, a 13th century Sufi poet. He often expresses an awe and wonder of God’s presence that I could easily envy.

      By the way, St. Francis’s feast is this week. Thursday. I will think of you! Have a great week!

    A flower indeed bears witness.In its beauty to Love.In its seeds to Hope.All around us are the sermons of the flowers.
