Remembering God: Resting In The Midst Of Life
by MARY KATHARINE DEELEY
As baptized Christians, we believe that God accompanies us on our pilgrimage through life, but how often do we feel stuck, overwhelmed, or lost along the way? In Remembering God, Mary Katharine Deeley helps the contemporary Christian to pray with Scripture by reminding us to stop and rest as weary travelers on a long journey might have done in ancient days. However, in this case, we are resting our souls by remembering that God is as near as our next breath; we need only to stop and be.
Our lives in God are not a puzzle to be solved, but rather a mystery to be lived. "Sometimes God gives us a path," says Mary Katharine Deeley, "instead of an answer." Though it is true that decisions, commitments, and struggles will most definitely arise, in this book the author reminds the reader that at every moment God is with us, inviting us to come, rest, and be. In the hustle and bustle of our daily routines, especially as our global connections continue to grow, and our borders continue to shrink; it can be difficult to stop and find our resting point in order to renew our spirits. May you find rest as you turn the pages of this book, and Remember God.
