Going Toward God, Come Whatever May

Going Toward God, Come Whatever May

The spiritual life is not principally about the avoidance of difficulty. It’s about going toward God, despite the difficulties that obstruct us. For now, our greatest prayer is not for peace, but for progress toward the Promised Land. The peace will come in due season. This was John Bradford’s thought when he prayed, “Life is a pilgrimage. I came from the Lord and I will return to the Lord. I may pass through dangerous places. O Christ, be my guide.”
