What if there were no questions? No W’s to form the words.
no _ho’s, no _hat’s, no _here’s, no _hich’s, no _hy’s.
What would life be like with no questions?…
Without questions there would be no answers…
And one cannot live the answers without first living the questions.
Without the questions…without the _ho’s, the _hat’s, the _here’s, the _hich’s, or the _hy’s
There also would be no _onder.
“Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books that are now written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.”
― Poet Rainer Maria Rilke
“The fear of man brings a snare, but he who trusts in the Lord is safe.” Pro 29:25

Hi J, I’m sorry I can’t leave a Like on your Post but it was very thought provoking, thank you for sharing it. As for the Like, it was the same with Lady Dei and Francine, it seems WordPress are having Technical Problems as others are experiencing the same or so Dei advised, at least it is not the hacker again.
Yes we do need to walk the path and ask the questions and also ask for the answers as Jesus tells us to do, He said you don’t have because you don’t ask and asking for God’s wisdom opens many doors of understanding and gives knowledge and insight as we mature in His Love. 1 Corinthians 2:9-16
Thanks again J – Christian Love from both of us – Anne
Awe-some! Thank you for this. I was reminded of my earliest journey in faith…and all the ?s I had in my 20s and how it was Maria Rainer Rilke’s phrase…’Learn to love the questions…’ that helped me seek and find the Lord.
HI ,MORNDAY HI,,DOT,BLESSING YOUR PAGE…..“Thus says the LORD, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: ‘I am the LORD your God, who teaches you to profit, who leads you in the way you should go.’” Isaiah 48:17 (ESV)
Are you waking up today with a serious case of the Mondays? Does your life feel like a prison that is keeping you bound in chains of grief, shame, guilt, and sin? Sometimes we need a good reminder of how free we are and why praise and thankfulness should always be on our lips.
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places, even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him. In love he predestined us for adoption as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will, to the praise of his glorious grace, with which he has blessed us in the Beloved. In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace, which he lavished upon us, in all wisdom and insight making known to us the mystery of his will, according to his purpose, which he set forth in Christ as a plan for the fullness of time, to unite all things in him, things in heaven and things on earth.” (Ephesians 1:3-10, ESV)
Beautiful post — the Rilke quote is so excellently wise.(Came her via Caddo Veil and glad I did!)
I had to save these words also…so good!
