Stand brave near Him who never sleeps and hold tight to His right hand that leads.
It is evident that the static sound of our reality today has amplified, while its waves continue to relentlessly pierce our lives. These “waves”, much like the sea swells that threatened the lives of Jesus and his disciples, have plunged countless into agonizing and paralyzing depths. Our boats, we ourselves, have been battered by an unending storm, while already overloaded with painful cargo.
My God! Has the thunder muffled our cries? God! Are you not awake?
To truly appreciate the answers to these questions, we must remember that the essence of our faith lies in our unrestricted and infinite ability to place our load in the hands of He, to whom it belongs, and the absolute reliance on Him, who grants clarity and direction.
Thus, we must trust blindly our God that always sees, stand brave near Him who never sleeps and hold tight to His right hand that leads. The battle to consistently envision the wondrous light He has promised, amidst the darkness, is not only the ultimate test of faith, but also the journey we are called to trek: The Christian Journey.
