Thoughts for the Day... on "Wholeness"

I have been readingBold an interesting book titled Seeking Peace by Johann Christoph Arnold. Within the book he shares a wonderful quote from Henri Nouwen...

As Nouwen talks of the complexity of life and multiple roles, activities, values, beliefs, etc. he writes

How can we "keep in together" when we are constantly being torn apart? Jesus says, "Not a hair of your head will be lost. Your perseverence will win you your lives (Luke 21:18019). We can only survive our world when we trust that God knows us more intimately than we know ourselves. We can only keep it together when we believe that God holds us together. We... win our lives when we remain faithful to the truth that every little part of us, yes every hair, is completely safe in the divine embrace of our Lord. "

Do you ever have those tender areas of your life that you care so much about yet they too seed such vulnerability when gentle concerns or questions seep in to the thoughts and feelings? No matter how much faith, hope and love we live life with, we are all so deeply human. ...

Sometimes it is so incredibly difficult, yet so uniquely important,

to "Let go and Let God."....


  1. A comforting reminder that we all need to keep close to our heart. Thank you.
