When I have lost my way, God is. When I am found again, God is. When all around me is chaos, God is. When all around me is peace, God is. When I face tragedy, God is. When I face triumph, God is. Thank you, God. Amen.
God is here, right now.
This picture reminds me of both Greg Clapper's quote and the reflection that I wrote in the book today. Though the fog never cleared the day I took this picture, I knew the mountains were there. God is there even when I can't feel God's presence.
How do you know that "God is here, right now"?
I love this book — about tragedy and the way that God is present through all difficulties. Greg Clapper wrote the book after his 1989 experience of being the chaplain on the scene after the crash of United Airlines flight 232. Still today we need these words about God's comfort in the midst of every tragedy. I'm sorry that this book has gone out of print. Find this book on Amazon.
I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
