Today is the bridge between acceptance and faith

Today is the bridge between acceptance and faith. - Jonathan Lockwood Huie

It is not our place to know the mind of God. God knows what is best in the long run - best for each of us individually, and best for humanity as a whole. This is often very difficult to accept when we see war and disease in the world and experience physical and emotional suffering in ourselves, our family, and our friends. I consider this belief in God's infinite power and ultimate wisdom to be the true test of faith.

Today is the bridge between the past, regarding which we unconditionally accept that everything has occurred according to God's plan, and a future where we place our unconditional trust in God's omnipotence and God's benevolent design for our lives.

A personal note: Usually I use the word Spirit rather than God, and avoid using a masculine pronoun, in an attempt to be more inclusive. While I made an exception today, please substitute Spirit, My Higher Power, Universe, the One, or whatever name creates comfort for you. There are seven billion names for Spirit, and I honor yours.


  1. God could be a "she," don't forget. Most likely is neither one or the other. Many of us are very offended with the repeated use of "he" references to our creator.

  2. I would have to agree that believing and relying on God's Infinite Power and Wisdom test our Faith, and reward our Trust!
