Another Gleam of Light from Julian
Posted by Supertradmum
I saw in truth that God does all things, however small they may be. And I saw that nothing happens by chance, but by the far-sighted wisdom of God. If it seems like chance to us, it is because we are blind and blinkered. The things planned before the world began come upon us suddenly, so that in our blindness we say they are chance. But God knows better. Constantly and lovingly he brings all that happens to its best end.
When a soul holds on to God in trust---whether in seeking him or contemplating him--this is the highest worship it can bring.
For his soul's health a man is sometimes left on his own; but his sin is not always the cause. Bliss is lasting; pain is passing...
It is God' s will that we should rejoice with him in our salvation, and that we should be cheered and strengthened by it.,.
