'God does not die when we cease to believe in a personal deity. We die on the day when our lives cease to be illuminated by the steady radiance, renewed daily, of a wonder, the source of which is beyond all reason.’ ~Dag Hammarskjöld
Life can best be described as challenging, on occasions cruel and rarely easy. From our own experience we know it is often unpredictable, exciting and also at times overwhelming. Who could have predicted that no planes would fly throughout Europe for more than a week because of volcanic ash? Nature throws up many surprises as does life itself. It would take a person of remarkable strength and zeal to journey through life on their own. We need support, love and encouragement on our journey. It’s a need that must be met every day and not on the odd occasion here and there. Some of us are lucky to have this need met, others not so. The one common link we all have is our need of God. God isn’t the magician who will solve our problems or make life easier. Having God on our side gives us deeper roots in life. These deeper roots give us that positive edge in everything we do each day.
