When confronted with a great challenge, have you every wished you could hear more directly from God? That an audible voice would just clear things up for you?
How would you express yourself to the little crab who made these tiny footprints in the sand? If you wanted to care for the crab, might you get him a little snack to help him trust you? Would you try to understand him by watching him? Wouldn’t you gently nudge him away from danger?
God reveals himself to us through His loving care for us in the created world, through his word, and through the testimony of others such as the saints, but He also reveals himself to us through His very mystery, His incomprehensibility.
Thank you God for revealing yourself to us through your beautiful creation, your Word, your saints and through the occasional nudge.
