Sometimes we have to look up mutely to God and say, “I don’t understand it at all, but go on with what You are doing.” That marks a real stage of learning to trust in God. Spiritual experience has begun; suffering has already deepened the soul.
Reflection Questions: What is God doing that defies understanding? What do I hope to gain by resisting? What can I hope to gain by trusting?
And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear? Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator.
