Instead

white rose bw ch sepia IMG_4667

Seek silence in the midst of the tumult,

seek solitude in the masses,

light in the midst of darkness;

find forgetfulness in injury,

victory in the midst of despondence,

courage in the midst of alarm,

resistance in the midst of temptation,

and peace in the midst of war.

-Miguel de Molinos (The Spiritual Guide, 1675)

 

Faith is not blind. Faith is not oblivious. Faith is not in denial.

Faith simply refuses to stop too soon.

Faith keeps looking until it sees what God wants to do instead.

  1. I love these gems you find and share and the words of inspiration you’re given to share in addition! Most affirming line in Molinos quote for me today – “forgetfulness in injury”. m
