Question: I suspect it’s a cycle of learning, but compared to last summer when I thought I finally “understood” it all, now I feel perfectly helpless. I’ve handed my self back to God. I suspect it’s time for more shaping, but how do I proceed?
Answer: I know it doesn’t feel like it, but from your comments, I know that you’re exactly where you need to be. Just as it seems there is no end to the degree of deception (and the darkness it hides) that we find within ourselves, so is there no end to the new expanses and refreshing energies that are awakened in us each time we willingly walk through these temporary deserts in our spiritual life.
