How God Works

Please share with your network!

To fully understand is always to stand under and let things have their way with you. If God wants to work in you, God has to do it secretly, in darkness. God can’t let you know what’s going on, because you’re likely to get in the way! You may try to engineer the process yourself and thereby destroy it; or you may try to stop it altogether because you are afraid of the immense freedom and spaciousness God is leading you toward. It’s only the wise, broken ones who allow themselves to “undergo God” and to trustingly “let go and let God.”

Richard Rohr, OFM
