In skimming my emails today, a paragraph from an advertised blog caught my eye:
The world is not a very comfortable place right now. Now, it could certainly be worse (although I don’t usually find that reminder too terribly comforting); but it has also definitely been better. To say that the difficulties, tragedies, injustices, and uncertainties of this year have been utterly overwhelming would probably be a gross understatement for most of us. But if we are uncomfortable in the world, that is okay. More than okay—we’re not actually supposed to be too comfortable here.
The rest of the blog talks about how this life on this earth is not all there is. It truly is a means to an end – hopefully and prayerfully a life with God. It was encouraging and thought provoking. I highly recommend this short read from St. John Vianney theological seminary.
I Found God today in a reminder that it’s OK not to be comfortable here.
