Henri J.M. Nouwen Quotes: Is God Present Or Is He Absent Maybe We

Is God Present Or Is He Absent? Maybe We Can Say Now That In The Center Of Our Sadness For His Absence We Can Find The First Signs Of His Presence. And That In The Middle Of Our Longings We Discover The Footprints Of The One Who Has Created Them. It Is In The Faithful Waiting For The Loved One That We Know How Much He Has Filled Our Lives Already. Just As The Love Of A Mother For Her Son Can Grow While She Is Waiting For His Return, And Just As Lovers Can Rediscover Each Other During Long Periods Of Absence, So Also Our Intimate Relationship With God Can Become Deeper And More Mature While We Wait Patiently In Expectation For His Return.
