Embracing the Mystery

I used to have a hard time with the whole “God works in mysterious ways” adage. It seemed suspect to me in a way that I couldn’t explain.

But what I discovered is that I was striving for a a set of beliefs that explained everything, something absolute. A way of believing that left no question unanswered, no stone unturned.

What I have come I understand is that this kind of approach would leave no room for exploration, or surprise, or genuine discovery. It would eliminate the need for a person to seek God for their own reasons because the reasons would already be laid out for them, all the answers solved, all the mysteries realized.

And I really believe this would stop people from feeling the need to pursue God in the first place. So now, I try to embrace the mystery and stop being so obsessed with trying to figure intro what is coming next. If we knew, we couldn’t appreciate the actual moment. Hope would become obsolete.
