“The Word was made flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory.” The prologue of John’s gospel positively resists sense and logic and points us directly to the domain of our senses, our intuition, and our desire: to look, to touch, to believe. The bond of warmth and genuine love with God will make itself known by making itself felt: in physical sensations that enfold us or catch us unawares. It will erupt in emotions that we cannot hide or control. It will whisper across the surface of awareness in intuitions that live in the gut as much as in the mind.
-Br. Keith Nelson, SSJE
Take heart. If you find your-self praying for God’s guidance, God is guiding you already. The desire itself is the seed of revelation. God has caught your attention. God is already there in the question or your sense of need.
