‘I do not practice religion in accordance with the sacred rights… I do not believe that a man is any nearer to God for being clad in priestly garments… When I gaze at a sunset sky and spend hours contemplating its marvellous ever-changing beauty, an extraordinary emotion overwhelms me. Nature in all its vastness is truthfully reflected in my sincere though feeble soul. Around me are the trees stretching up their branches to the skies, the perfumed flowers gladdening the meadow, the gentle grass-carpeted earth… and my hands unconsciously assume an attitude of adoration. To feel the supreme and moving beauty of the spectacle to which Nature invites her ephemeral guests… that is what I call prayer.’
"He went out, not knowing where he was going." — Hebrews 11:18
"Living a life of faith means never knowing where you are being led. But it does mean loving and knowing the One who is leading. It is literally a life of faith, not of understanding and reason— a life of knowing Him who calls us to go. Faith is rooted in the knowledge of a Person, and one of the biggest traps we fall into is the belief that if we have faith, God will surely lead us to success in the world."
Our love for God is God’s love for us.
