Give God the Key

“Have patience with everything that remains unsolved in your heart. Try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books written in a foreign language. Do not now look for the answers. They cannot now be given to you because you could not live them. It is a question of experiencing everything. At present you need to live the question. Perhaps you will gradually, without even noticing it, find yourself experiencing the answer, some distant day.”

–Rainer Maria Wilke

  1. This morning I was in need of support so I came here to read. This quote is just what my heart needed. The holidays are full of invites and comings and goings. It is a hard time to be alone yet not alone. There are people every where but the one person I want to be with is no longer with me. A brand new year is ahead of me with many blank pages on the calender. What does God want me to do? He holds the keys to my future. I am not in control. That can be a scary thought. I am keeping a copy of this to read as often as I need reminding. Thanks for being here.


    • Nola, I am so thankful you found something for your heart this morning. I totally understand everything that you said. You feel so alone and like a part of you is missing even when you are with friends or family. Half of you has gone on to heaven.

      Be very gentle with yourself. Grief is such hard work. I found that it was less stressful to simply take it one day at a time and do what God had for me to do each day instead of trying to see the big picture. That way it is less scary.

      Don’t be afraid to cry whenever you need to no matter when it is. I would feel like I was literally going to explode if I didn’t cry. It is a stress reliever and very, very healing.
