Thought of the Day February 13, 2020 Trust

One night a house caught fire and a young boy was forced to flee to the roof. The father stood on the ground below with outstretched arms, calling to his son, "Jump! I'll catch you." He knew the boy had to jump to save his life. All the boy could see, however, was flame, smoke, and blackness. As can be imagined,he was afraid to leave the roof. His father kept yelling: "Jump! I will catch you." But the boy protested: "Daddy, I can't see you." The father replied: "But I can see you and that's all that matters."

In those times of darkness in our life, we don't see the Father with arms outstretched ready to save us. All we see is what looks like being hopelessly alone. But the grace of the Father tells us he is there, ready to embrace us, if we but leap into his arms. It is truly a leap of faith not into nothingness but into the All in All that matters. If we hesitate, the darkness will truly envelope us. If we trust, the light will break through.
