Answers in God’s World

 

“Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books that are now written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.”  ― Rainer Maria Rilke

The words say, “Love the questions!”—all day long.

Yea!  Then we find the Answers true.  Do stay

The course, for puzzles in o’r life have dawn

For sure.  The breaking day doth shine a ray.

A ray of hope and peace, solution found.

We need not fear to stay in dark, all blind

Nor fear to find ourselves turned round and round.

O’r God is better One than that—He’s kind!

A kind and loving Father, sweet and dear.

He wills to show us Answers true, in time.

Be patient as we walk the earth, a mere

Footstep small, balance keen, to follow sign.

O’r questions do become a test.  In time

We find the Answers true—from o’r God’s Mind.

I have written both love and divine sonnets in the Elizabethan style for a long time. Now I am gradually adding them to a blog. Most are dedicated to my husband.

  1. Thank you for introducing yourself! You posted this a month before the trending news appeared. It almost reads prophetic with a different tone! Thank you for writing light into a sometimes dark world! Christina M. Eder (Oak Ridge, TN)
