“The heart has reasons that reason cannot know.” Blaise Pascal

Yes, God is speaking to us.  He whispers to us through our conscience within. He speaks through the sublime beauty that surprises us again and again. He woos us through art and music that move the soul. He gives teasers of His Epic Story  through the smaller stories we love, with their villains and heroes.  He nudges relentlessly through our heart’s unmet deep longings for a world that is, but not yet. He shouts to rouse us from death sleep, in our pain, suffering and misery.  He  persuades us through impossible “coincidences”, and personalized messages  that only we could know. Ultimately we come to know Him, not through intellectual arguments, but by the heart.

Until I can figure out how to do links,  I suggest the following books . . .

The Journey of Desire by John Eldredge

The Ragamuffin Gospel by Brennan Manning
