Walking blind...

Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books that are now written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.
From: Letters to a Young Poet by Rainer Maria Rilke's

"Who is blind but my servant, or deaf like My messenger whom I send." -Isaiah 42:19

The quote above is from a great new book that I have just started to read.
So often we are stumbling around in the dark, looking for a light switch to make this path easier...but sometimes there is none. Sometimes we are given no answer to the situation but are called to just be at peace with His presence.
Are we willing to say...He is here, and that is enough?
