Two Ways

One day we come to a crossroad. We are hard pressed from all sides. Current circumstances almost overwhelm us and we do not understand everything which takes place inside of us or around us. The crossroad forks into two roads. One says faith. The other says unbelief. To choose the faith road means that we accept ourselves as we are accepted. It means that we choose ourselves like we are chosen. Daring to go the faith way also means that we finally can relax because in the instant we go that way we acknowledge we are taken over in totality by God. Everything we are is He expressing Himself in our beautiful humanity. Every step we take on the faith road creates an echo which shouts in our awareness:  God can nothing but reproduce Himself in every now as us.
“There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn’t true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true” (Søren Kierkegaard). “We live by faith and not sight” (St Paul).
